One MONTH!

Yesterday, January 22, 2011, marks ONE MONTH that Nora has been home with us.  It seems so much longer!  She has adjusted so well!  In our adoption training, I think they gave us several worse case scenarios, which left us apprehensive.  However, with those horror scenes in mind, our transition time has been wonderful.  We were warned of troubles sleeping and eating, which are the two biggies for kids who change cultures.  But Nora has slept well since day number one, in her own bed with hardly a blip on the radar.  There are foods she likes a lot (chicken, beef, garlic mashed potatoes and pineapple) and foods that she will eat, but are not her favorite (spaghetti, lasagna, and green salad).  We think she was slightly addicted to salt and sugar.  She asked to add them to everything!  I mean everything!  That has been put to rest along with her coffee drinking.  I still heat her milk for her each morning, but it now has chocolate Ovaltine…. like warm cocoa in the morning.  :o)
