I've been asked that question a lot lately and really overall things are going very, very well. I couldn't have asked for a better transition.
That being said...
Everyday brings something new or more appropriately, something routine to us but new to Lily. Thinking through ways to keep her involved, learning, engaged is challenging. She is such a trooper...trying new foods, participating in new experiences, meeting new people. I marvel at her bravery. And I fall into bed each night...or early evening as the case may be...wiped out.
The novelty of home has started to wear off a bit but there's a problem with getting out and exploring her brand new world...
She gets carsick. And not just the kind you deal with on long trips.
It's run an errand here...get sick.
Head to an appointment there...get sick.
That makes getting out of the house for some fun...well, not so much fun.
But despite the growing pains that come with adding a new family member, we're having a great time getting to know our newest princess. She noticed a picture of all 5 of the kids that I took out on our front porch a couple of years ago. She decided that she wanted her own photo shoot with the same backdrop. So out she went with my resident photographer (aka Lauren) and donned a few poses.
Her obvious cuteness and the fact that I still have a Christmas wreath hanging on my front door (that I didn't even realized was there until 2 days ago) perfectly sum up the way things have been around here these past 2 weeks.
Cute and crazy.
