oh so happy to be home!
yippee! she's an american! yippee! she's so happy! this was also taken at the airport in phoenix on wednesday. she had a better nite last nite, but today was even more clingy and fussy. what's so hard about that is, is that she was NEVER fussy/clingy the entire time in china; but, we've read in a lot of the books that this is normal. once the babies are in your home, even if they've been very content up til now, they're having to adjust YET AGAIN to a new place. a home, not just a small hotel room. poor, poor little baby! if one of us even leaves the room, she wails! it's amazing at how different she's acting, but like i said-we knew it was a possibility-and for this very reason, we didn't allow any of the grandparents to be at our house when we got home. she needs to take some time to adjust to this new place, with as little confusion as possible. if you think of us, please keep her in your prayers. we're praying that the adjustment time will be over soon and that kevin and i will never lose the compassion for what she's been thru-cuz man! it gets reallly tiring, her being so fussy. sweet baby girl-been thru soooooooo much. but we keep telling her (esp when she REALLY wails at nap/bedtime) that we will ALWAYS be here for her when she wakes up. we are her forever family now and we will ALWAYS love her, fussy or not!
