Today was our first full day at home and we decided to take things easy...Frances took this to heart and didn't wake up until close to 10 and that was only because we finally woke her up. Poor thing was exhausted, she went to bed around 8 last night and only woke up once when she moved from her bed to ours last night. We didn't even make her get out of jammies today..it was all about relaxing and playing. Yesterday she was a little overwhelmed by everything in her playroom but today she dove in and picked out a few favorites like her tea set...
Brobee likes tea too :)
She loves this little stroller...I have an American Girl Bitty Baby that I bought for her but she absolutely hates it, it makes her cry and recoil in horror so she wouldn't go near the stroller at first because it was in it, as soon as I removed it Kai Lan and Brobee got to take a ride...I think she has the same taste in toys that I do, the more colorful and goofier the better!
Checking out her kitchen...
Mealtimes have been interesting as we have been trying to figure out what she likes...in China she ate everything at first and then progressively became pickier. At least there we had the breakfast buffet to choose from so we could keep bringing her things until we found what she likes. Today she had a boiled egg and Cheerios for breakfast and that was a win along with ramen with egg for lunch. Snacks were easy but at dinner she got a little pickier...I made chicken with rice and some mac & cheese, she liked the rice dish but not so much the mac & cheese, she likes her noodles spicier and longer!
Our friend Nan brought Mugsy and Pixie back over this afternoon and Frances could not be more scared of them :( She screams, she cries, she grabs onto me for dear life and the poor pugs and now living in the kitchen for the time being. We know she will warm up to them in time and I don't expect them to be the best of friends (even though it would be nice!) but it would be great if they could at least be in the same room together. They have been giving her the side eye through the baby gate as they know she is the reason they are kitchen bound.
All in all today went well...well enough that she was tired out enough to fall asleep on the couch so we had a tear-free bedtime...yay!
Tomorrow we are going to get the car seat installed and run some errands...we are down to China pull-ups and they are not the best quality plus we all need some fresh air plus Frances needs to experience my favorite store Target :)
