Well we've been home now for 2 weeks, and we are finding our new normal.
Bedtime has been the biggest struggle by far, but it continues to get better each day.
2 nights ago we moved her out of our bed, and into a toddler bed that is in our room.
She woke up quite a few times and wanted us to hold her hand the first night.
Hoping tonight she will wake-up less.
We stayed home for the 1st week, and have made our home off limits to visitors.
She is feeling very safe and relaxed at home now, and even though it has been hard,
it has definitely been worth it.
Her first outing was to go see her 2 older brothers do a demonstration at the end of their week of 'Ninja Camp'.
They would probably tell you it was the best week of their lives. They had a blast learning to use nunchucks, ninja stars, and swords.
Aidan even got 2 black-eyes during camp!
Batri also had her 1st Frosty from Wendy's which she thought was too cold.
We went to Oak Glenn and went raspberry picking.
It was great since it was the week before apple season we were the only ones there.
Batri ate way more than she picked!
The Boulton Bunch, minus Austin, who is at Church Camp in Catalina this week.
Her 1st taste of soda.
Not a fan! :)
First trip to the beach.
She LOVED the sand, but was not interested in getting in the water.
Frankly I don't blame her.
I had a knit hat on her most of the day to keep the sun from drying her hair, and the sand out!
Her 1st PB&J sandwich
Oh, and she is learning to skateboard too.
A girl has to keep up with her older siblings!
After a rough 1st month, most of which we spent in Ethiopia, Batri is doing so much better than I had ever imagined. She is a total goofball, and loves to make us laugh.
She loves to snuggle her daddy, and wrestle her brothers.
She is always wanting Autumn to carry her around.
We play in the sprinkler and jump on the trampoline a lot.
Batri is such a joy, and we feel so blessed that she is in our family.
