Settling In

I know, I know. How long has it been? Too long. Well, let me just start by saying Klaudia is doing GREAT!! She has grown in so many ways - she is taking steps, talking LOTS, loves going to school and giving hugs. She is a happy girl and just a joy.

This is just a very brief update. But I wanted to post a few photos and give at least a bit of an update since we came home 4 months ago.

Since arriving home on Labor Day weekend, Klaudia has transitioned into school (it took a month or so of easing her in, but thankfully she LOVES it), she allowed us to put her in a Spidergirl costume for Halloween, she has begun to get to know her grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins, she celebrated Thanksgiving and an amazing Christmas, got used to a carseat, dealt with two blizzards, turned 2 years old, developed a love for Dora and the Imagination Movers, learned to tell mom to "shhhhh", went out to a steak dinner with parents, grandparents and uncle Kevin, took lots of steps, learned hand motions to "Twinkle, Twinkle" (and other songs), and made her parents smile A LOT.

Here are a few photos of the last couple of months:

Glad to see that things are going so well for you. Klaudia is getting so big and is as precious as ever. Isn't amazing how quickly the time flies with a little one around. I bet it feels like you just got home yesterday. Wishing you all the best of 2010.

I'm so glad you updated! We've been keeping tabs through "facebook," but it's nice to read your updates. She looks like she's grown so much and what a doll! What size is she in? BJ can still wear 12 months, but he has grown a little. He's just still so skinny! He has a belly, but isn't putting weight on anywhere else! Oh well, I'm sure he will eventually! What a darling little girl! Tell her BJ says hi!
