Keira and Connor are done with 1st grade and Kindergarten and ready for summer! Ashling is very excited to have them home!
I can’t believe we only adopted Ashling 2 months ago! Ashling continues to do really well. She is picking up English so quickly and is just a happy, funny, out-going and smart child.
However, the more comfortable she gets at home, the more she is testing boundaries. Big picture this is terrific but day-to-day the temper tantrums when we say “no” can be very challenging. I don’t think anyone ever said NO to her before and I also think she gets frustrated (understandably) with the language. The temper tantrums are pretty rough but thankfully she spends the majority of the day happy, loving and having fun!.
She also hates the daycare at the gym and refuses to go. It’s funny because she is fine with our babysitters. The gym daycare looks a lot like the room she was in at the orphanage and we think it must remind her of it.
So far, all of her medical appointments have gone great but we wont know too much until her sedated MRI in a few weeks. I am anxious to get the MRI done so we know what we are dealing it.
Going to Boston this weekend and excited to see one of the families we adopted with on Sunday! Although it’s great to be home, there are days where I miss the excitement and hotels in China 🙂
