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!

Pictures Pictures and More Pictures

I lost my camera a while ago and finally found it again on the floor in my car while clearing out Keira's millions of toys and jackets. Isn't it funny how we do that? End up with so many toys in the car as well as old bags of snacks and jackets? I didn't even know that Keira HAD that many jackets...and what about shoes??? How does it happen that there are so many shoes in there? She must have at least started out wearing them at one time or another and ended up barefoot. Anyway, I had so many pictures on the camera that I hadn't posted, so I thought I would post them now!

Here are some Disneyland pictures. Yes, we actually stood in that huge line to take pictures with Pooh! The last time we attempted to stand in that line, Tigger passed out and they had to drag him off. We weren't sure to be honest whether it was from heatstroke or if Tigger was drunk. This time, just about as soon as we got up to Tigger, he left for a break. He remains the ever elusive one...

We WERE able to get pictures with Eeyore and Pooh though!

She was a little shy around Pooh first, until Pooh wanted a hug. After that, he was her best friend.
We got this crazy looking blow up frog pool that she liked to play in during the summer. Dan spent FOREVER blowing that thing up. You would think that gadget man would at least have something that could have inflated that thing somewhere in his work area in the garage. It was a great little pool though. It even had a little slide that she could go up and down on.
I love her face in this picture. You can't tell that the water was a little cold that day, can you?

Princess Keira with her tiara and magic wand. I got her a little princess outfit so that she can just run around and be a princess whenever she felt like it. So far, she likes to be in disguise by dressing in just her regular clothes with her wand. I can't get her to put on the whole getup!
I definitely don't remember THESE slide pictures! Dan was the one that took them on a day when he took her to the park. She likes to climb up slides instead of going up the stairs. As long as other children aren't trying to go down the slide, we let her once in a while.
Here, Dan said that she was trying to make Baby go up the slide. She still takes Baby EVERYWHERE she goes. Every once in a while, she will let Baby stay in the car if I am able to convince her that Baby is taking a nap. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't and she says, "Oh Come on Mommy!" It's so funny how she says it too. Kind of in that "You're kidding, right?" voice. Funny how they pick up on things like that so easily.
This picture cracked me up. She put my dirty shoes on the wrong feet and was doing ballet around the house
Here she was running around the house with Max's hat on.
She really is such a funny happy little girl. It's a very rare exception that she isn't being silly or laughing and just being the joy that she is. Dan and I are so thankful every day for her being our daughter and that she is in our lives.
