Around Here

We're settling in around here.  Annie is still struggling a bit with her night time sleeping (or should I say Mama and Baba are....).  It could be that she has not eaten dinner since she came home until tonight.  She has been eating 2 meals per day but refuses dinner.  So, we'll see if that will help her get a full night's sleep.

Everyone is loving her.  Mei Mei is super sweet with her but Annie isn't always very receptive.  She spends much of the day telling her "No, No Mei Mei".  Mei Mei told me that Annie was a nasty girl yesterday because Annie hit her when she was trying to share something with her.......I assured her that she will come around.  They are starting to play together a bit but usually Annie just wants to pack everything up as soon as we get it all out to play.  She seems to be bonding the best right now with the 4 older kiddos which I expected.  She likes Cole to hold her and wants to see his truck whenever she sees him.   She started to cry the other night when Ethan was gone but luckily he returned as soon as she started.  She is obsessed with our "go go"--aka Lilly.  She was afraid of her at first but now likes to pet her.  She often asks where she is and wants her inside.

Today was the best day yet.  She was very happy all day and seemed to be more relaxed roaming around the house.  I am so happy that she is home!!

Here's what's been going on at our house:
A little nail painting

 Making muffins with Mary Claire

Going out to play in the snow for the first time
