We are still here, just very busy!
I am working very hard to find time to blog, but life has been busy as you can imagine. And then to top that off, we are a family that is always on the move at a moments notice so I haven't fully unpacked our bags from China and we were off for the weekend at the desert to ride. Things are going great with Lily. She is very happy and is learning how to fit in to our family. And we are adjusting to having her here too.
On Tuesday we had our appointment with the International Adoption Doctor, Dr. Mink. We used her for our adoption with Emma also. For Meilynn's adoption we used a Dr. in San Francisco
who was highly recommended to us by our agency. So we loaded up all of the girls and went to make the trip to Torrance to see Dr. Mink. Lily is doing fine. She is only 36 pounds and almost 44 inches tall. That puts her in the 5% for both height and weight. For some reason I thought she was tall, but I guess it is because she is so thin. We will need to get all of the usual blood tests and shots. We couldn't do any shots on Tuesday because it had been less than a month sine she received shots in China and we are going to run some titers to see what shots she will need. The Dr. observed her playing and her fine motor skills are good just as I suspected as well as her large motor skills. The Dr. observed quite a few scars on her little body. We will never know where they all came from, but she is fearless and maybe that has something to do with all of them. I started her in gymnastics this week with Emma and Meilynn and she loved it. She wasn't afraid to try anything.
So what do you do your first weekend home? You go to the desert for some more fun!
Daddy couldn't wait to get her out and riding. But after our experience with the cars in China (See the Video) we decided that instruction would be best before we set her loose. Daddy took her shopping for her riding outfit and she loved it. She thought the goggles were for swimming.
