Happy 2012 New Years Everyone!
Wow, our last posting was in April of 2009. That would make it almost 3 years. Time sure flies.
When we brought Hope home, she was underweight, had nappy hair, barely spoke and smelled like a fish (Mentioned in"Rough Nights" Posting, 4/2/09)
We are proud to say, according to her last Kaiser check-up, she is just fine in her physical development (according to the Asian scale). Her hair is shiny. She's had 6 months of speech therapy and talks too much now. And she smells like whatever baby shampoo we use on her.
In Fall of 2011, she began preschool. We were a bit hesitant, because she just wasn't that confident with potty-training. When we brought her home from China, it seemed like they had tried to potty-train her. But, I think they made her sit in a potty for a very "extended" time. She would have lots of accidents and seemed traumatized when it came to sitting on the toilet. None of those "Have your kid trained in a day" books worked. We made "baby" steps each day. It was over a year of training.
Now, Hope loves preschool and is very sociable.
Hope's very 1st field trip.
