It's so great to be home! I'm just going to give a quick run down of the last couple days, because now I have laundry and cleaning to do and can't just sit on the computer(the drawback of being home)! The flights home were uneventful. Sofia was so good! She slept a few hours but mostly ate and played quietly.
Taking a snooze on the plane:)
These pictures were taken at JFK airport. A new American citizen!
We had lots of friends and family at the airport to meet us. Everyone was so excited to see her in person! The first day home was busy. Alexa had dance so we dropped her off and went to have a Starbucks! Of course I had to get one for Sof! Her first Starbucks steamed milk, and so sweet they didn't charge me for either drink! They know me well and have been waiting for her homecoming also!
She so knows how to pose for pictures!
The hardest thing coming home has been her reception to the other kids. She still is not interested in Mark at all, but he understands. The kids however have been waiting for her for so long, and just want her to love them. She is still very attached to me and not good with others. Not sure if that is a real diagnosable adoption issue, or just her personality. I know it hasn't been long, but I just don't know if I should be doing something different. This morning Lexi and I sat and played blocks with her, and then I edged myself away. Lexi was really happy and it was a good step!
