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!

A Momentous Occasion

Things have been pretty crazy lately. Gigi and Max are here for the Summer visit and like usual, we are everywhere!

They flew into Las Vegas and we drove in to pick them up and spend a couple of days there. We did tons of walking and seeing the sights. After that, we drove back home and went to the beach, Disneyland and Legoland the next few days after that. We also drove up to San Clemente to have lunch at the pier and see the sights.

Things have been so busy and I will have some pictures as soon as I can. The momentous occasion I am talking about is that at Disneyland, Keira had a dry diaper just about the entire day. That is huge for her. She was consistently going to the potty.

When we got back from the beach today, we were home for a bit before I realized that Keira was nowhere to be found. Where was she? We searched through the house and there she was...sitting on the toilet in the bathroom. She was horrified that we opened the door when she was going potty and gave us a lecture (in baby talk of course) that she needed privacy while she went to the potty! LOL Dan and I quietly backed out and I waited until she called for me to help. She went to the potty all by herself! Granted, she had peed a little in her training pants just before, but that was a huge breakthrough for her to actually go to the potty all by herself! Yay! Hopefully this is a sign of more solo potty breaks and that she is on her way to going by herself from now on! We'll see :)

We're doing ok! My house felt like it was rolling for a while, but other than that, the dog didn't even wake up! LOL It was bigger than any that I have felt for a while and they are always kind of scary, but I still don't think they are as scary as the tornadoes that you get out there Becky!
