Our first full day


Well, today went much better. She was so scared yesterday. She sucks on the back of one hand when she's upset. It's so cute. She's eating really well and is even eating some table food. A HUGE thing that all the new parents look for is a messy diaper and I'm so proud to say that we had two today!! Daddy did the honors of cleaning up the first one. When it was my turn, we popped her in the bath for the first time. She LOVED it! She is just so cute. We're even getting some great belly laughs too. She is starting to come out of her shell and seems to be adjusting to us. She is looking to us for comfort now. I am so happy and grateful to be her mom.

I also want to thank everyone for all their comments and emails. I'd love to respond to each one of them but I just don't have the time. I soooo feel the love and it's great to hear from back home. Thank you all!!

What a fantastic update! I am so glad things are going well!

Yep, you definitely want to see poop diapers because a constipated baby is a very unhappy baby! Ha!

And I am so happy she loved her bath! Yippee! I took Briana a while!

Can't wait to see you! Big hugs!
