Hi Ladies!

Sorry I haven't been on to update in forever. We made it home, exhausted, but in one piece.

Grace was an amazing sleeper on all the flights, and seems to become more interactive every day.

Trouble is, I think the crib reminds her of the orphanage, because putting her in there makes her squeal and shriek and freak out... which means that either my husband or I need to be holding her constantly. So this week, I have been reading on my phone, but it seemed too tough to try to post on my phone while she slept on me, so no update up till now.

Today I had a hard fought victory, she is currently sleeping in her crib! I had to get in there with her (fortunately it is a sturdy crib), get her to sleep on me, then slowly lower her down, and eventually escape.

I will put a few pictures up here, but there are more on my blog, and better details of our story (and my life in general if you like to read blogs like I do). My blog is (not hyperlinked because it won't let me yet) the following words: another ordinary typical average day put together and followed by a period, the word "blogspot," another period and com.

This one is from today, and is my favorite:

Hopefully next nap time is less of a battle, and I can start posting more regularly again.

Yay so glad to see you post and to hear that everything went well!! How adorable is she?? About the crib, I am sure she will eventually get used to it. Could you try one of the gadgets though, like a swing, bouncer or something to soothe her and not having to hold her all the time?? So happy for you. Will be checking out your blog

awww congrats she is beautiful! I had to laugh at your description of how you're getting her to sleep in her crib because I did the exact same thing with Savannah (for a long time, she was a light/difficult sleeper) - just keep doing whatever works, and it'll all sort itself out eventually. Welcome Back!!

Savannah Stylin!
