The Many Adventures of Keira!

This is our page to document our family's adoption journey- starting from when we first started planning for our little one, to when we brought her home. We're also going to keep this updated with all of the things that Keira has been up to since she's been home with us here in the U.S!

The Extra Poopy Day

Now, I understand that some people may not find this all that interesting or even funny, but I think that every parent has probably experienced this at one time or another. If you HAVEN'T, just wait! Your turn is coming so be ready ;).
I was working on Saturday, so Dan and Keira got to hang out and spend some Daddy and Keira time together. He did have to do some marketing at some of the local motorcycle shops for his insurance business that he is starting up, so Auntie Lorraine volunteered to watch Keira for a couple of hours. The day started out with a couple of poops...enough to where Dan was going to tell Lorraine that she was lucky since that many poops early on pretty much guarantees that she wouldn't have to worry about another one for the rest of the day. Little did he know...

Well, Auntie Lorraine and Keira spent a couple of hours running errands and playing before she brought Keira back home. By the time they got home, there was ANOTHER poop waiting for Dan. What was that? Four in a day? He started to change her when he realized that he didn't have a garbage bag to throw the diaper away in. He ran out to the kitchen to get a bag and by the time he got back, Keira had pretty much gotten poop all over the place. What a MESS! He cleaned it up and decided with as poopy as she had been through the day, he should give her a bath. He ran the bath and Keira was having a blast like she always does playing with her toys and splashing around. As she was playing, she decided to give daddy a little surprise! A floating Baby Ruth in the bathtub! Any of you that have seen Caddyshack know EXACTLY what I'm talking about. Now, I wasn't there to see it for myself, but when I think of how much Dan must have been freaking out, I STILL laugh! The next day Dan had to work, so we spent Mommy and Keira day together. Later in the evening, we took Auntie Lorraine and Uncle Mike out for dinner at King's to celebrate Auntie's birthday! I can honestly say that I have never had a bad experience there! Keira got to help Auntie unwrap her birthday presents before tearing up some sushi! She LOVES California Rolls and eats them up seaweed and all.
Here is the picture over her head that was just fascinating to her. She kept saying "Mommy,what's THAT???"
This was our version of the picture.
By the way...since I spent the whole day with Keira having Mommy and Keira day, Dan was curious whether I experienced and Extra Poopy Day as well. The truth? She pooped once...and it was in the potty! :) FLUSH and that was the end of it! lol Poor Dan!
