Routines

 We are still trying to get Little Miss into a routine.  We are doing pretty good, but any routine that includes her in a horizontal position with her eyes closed brings that expression to her face that I am calling her, "I'M REALLY PISSED OFF" face.

Oh, well, sleep will come.  It always does, despite her attempts to stay awake by remaining in a sitting position.  She wobbles.  You can stand in there next to her and watch, because she is on the edge of consciousness and all of her energy is going into sitting up, but her little head nods back and forth like she's watching a vertical tennis match.  She is so darned cute!

She is finding things she likes, though.  For instance, Gypsy is her favorite thing in the world.  Good thing I never managed to give Gypsy away.
 It's hard to pull her away.

We are making progress in the food department.  BIG STRIDES!  Today I fed her a small (very small) piece of a French fry and she didn't spit it out.  Also, Cora has been making MAJOR inroads with sweet potatoes! Check this out!
She still likes her bottles, though.  And here you see me feeding her sometime before bedtime.  I like the total calm and relaxed posture.
Well, to bed for me, jet-lag is a real and annoying foe.  I work tomorrow, I would love to stay home for awhile longer, but I don't have the luxury of vacation or leave.

Thanks to all who have left comments!  We love to hear your thoughts and hope you like the pictures!

I am sure you don't want to hear that we had major sleep issues with Dori for 5+ mos after getting home, so I won't tell you.

I love that picture. She sure knows how to relax when she wants to.

As I said before, I love all the pictures (and yeah, one with dad on it as well this time!) and the posts. Good luck at work! (and just like Diana I won't tell you about our children (not adopted) who are still not letting us sleep through the night, even though they are 6 year old and 20 months old...). Looking forward to reading more tomorrow.

I really feel so happy for you. Overwhelmingly so. I can tell that you love her very, very much. This is beautiful! Wishing you all the very best as she grows!
