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!

3 Year Old Check up

It has been so long since I've blogged! We've been so busy and so much has gone on, it's been so hard to get here. Keira is now in pre-school and having a great time. She is meeting lots of new friends and is as fun and active as ever! I took her to her 3 year old check up and she is doing great! She is 95% percentile for height (yes, she's a tall one) and is in the 50% percentile for weight! When we first brought her home, she was about 5% and was barely eating anything, now she eats everything in sight since she's just so active. She is still wearing size 3 clothes but they are starting to flood a little on her heightwise.

She loves watching "The Letter Factory" leapfrog DVD's that Kuya Max gave her. She is really understanding the pronunciations of the letters and is trying to read words by sounding out the letters. Dan has made her a bunch of templates that she likes using to trace out the Capital and lower case letters of the Alphabet. She LOVES to have story time and have us read to her. She loves trying to read to baby and her dolls. If I didn't know better, I would SWEAR that she really was reading Cat in the Hat since she knows all of the words just about! She loves trying to help me cook, help make Daddy coffee and loves to climb all of the fun things at the park that they built close to our house. She's talking up a storm and singing and dancing all the time. She is even practicing MC'ing where she stands in front of Dan and I and starts announcing the next show (it's pretty funny since she also makes sure we clap and respond appropriately LOL She's so bossy!) She loves playing with Amelia and giving her dog treats although I have to watch and make sure that she doesn't give her the whole thing. It's not like Amelia would tell me!

She is such a whirlwind and it's so fun to watch all of the changes happening in her world- I feel so blessed to get to be part of it. She's growing up so fast!
