Maire is dressed and ready to go! She loves "going bye bye".
Today is our Consulate Appointment!! Our 14 days in China is coming to an end in 3 days... Can I tell you how excited I am about that!! I know I should be enjoying my daughter's home country, and I am. But I miss my boys! I am ready to get back to real life. For months (ok, years) this adoption has been weighing on our shoulders--obviously we are thrilled to have Maire in our arms, but so much of the process is frustrating. We are just ready to live our lives as a family of 5!
Maire continues to amaze us with her personality and abilities. She is so smart and already her motor skills have improved 100%. She eats like a champ (not too picky) and sleeps solid for 10 + hours. She laughs and giggles and plays. We love seeing her so happy. She still HATES baths--and I mean HATE. We've tried cool water, hot water, with mom in the tub, with mom OUT of the tub. We've tried toys and bubbles and splashing--nope. She hates baths! But she always smells so wonderful after her bath, and she forgives us pretty quickly! I know one day she will scream when we take her OUT. Until then, we will just suffer through blood curdling screams in another language!
