One week today

We have been home a week today. The progress of adjustment has been amazing. Ci Ci is doing wonderful. Our sleep problems have subsided. She and BG are doing great together during the day and she is growing attached to the other kids. She is so sweet natured and has a great spirit about her. The only time I see any problems is when her and BG get in a tug of war over a toy but that's pretty typical for a couple of two year olds. We feel very blessed to have LK in our lives. We had a rough and bumpy start but she is doing so much better now. I think she is adjusting quickly...alot more quickly than we thought she would.
We will be visiting our pediatrician in the morning for a physical. I am anxious to see what she has to say!
I went to an Awards Ceremony at the Elementary School yesterday and my sweet Anna got a reading achievement award. We were so proud of her. She has come a long way this year! Third grade was a challenge but she worked hard and it has paid off! She loves her medal for her reading achievements!

I am still very tired from the jetlag even though everyone is sleeping through the night now. I almost feel more exhausted now that I am getting rest! I hope this gets better soon because all I want to do right now is take a nap! That's near impossible with two two year olds! :) Fortunately they both sleep at the same time so I can sneak one in if I try.
We are looking forward to some time with my inlaws this weekend. This will be their first time to meet LK since they live out of town. They will be in love...and I have a feeling she will be showered with some kisses and hugs when they see her!


  1. You've been on my mind. I'm glad the adjustments are continuing to go well. That jet lag thing kicked my butt. I'm glad Lili-Kate is sleeping for you. Josie took months and months and months. I'll be anxious to hear how her doctor's appt goes.


  2. I'm so glad things continue to go well! I look forward to hearing about LK's appointment tomorrow.

    Don't push yourself too hard with the jet lag. You will feel normal again, I promise. :)

  3. i'm so glad you're getting some sleep! we knew you guys would be perfect for lk :) please keep us updated after your appt! we love you and can't wait to see you

  4. We are glad to see your little girl is adjusting well. We were thankful for meeting you in China. Good luck to you and your Family

  5. I'm so glad things are getting better. I PROMISE...the jet lag WILL PASS. It took me about two weeks to feel normal again. It'll get better!!! Hang in there and in the as much outside of the house as possible during the daytime....and TRY not to sleep during the day either. It just messed with us when we did!!! I look forward to hearing how your visit goes with Dr. Israel!!! We're praying for that!!! She is just a cutie and I am THRILLED that I was able to meet the little sweet heart!!! Love ya!

  6. How did the doctor's appt go? I've been thinking about you all. Hugs.
