Josie and Jamie have become friends and it is so much fun watching them play together.
It has been a long time since I have posted. A lot of life happens in two months. The girls are so active now that it is summer time. It is easy to get everyone to sleep at night because they have played so hard.
One of the things we have struggled with since we brought Janna and Jamie home is they get into things constantly especially in the kitchen. We really thought our house was child proof until we brought them home. We had to be on high alert at all times. Last month we had gates installed in the kitchen so they cannot get in unless we are there. It has helped so much. We also put gates in their doorway so that they do not wander at night time. We spent a weekend childproofing and making things safer. We had to put brackets on dressers so they could not fall over, because Jamie tries to climb them. We also have knob covers on doors to bathrooms and outside to keep them from escaping. Our constant thought is keeping them safe.
I took these pictures before we went to get her hair cut. She hates to have her hair brushed and constantly plays with it when it is long. It is so pretty long but much easier to handle when it is short.
I was trying to get them to look up so I held up my fingers and then they all imitated me.
I make them a fruit smoothy each day and they love them.
Jillian loves to play basketball with the big kids. She throws the ball to someone and then they make a basket.
Jamie was so excited when she got these flip flops on. She never wears shoes. If we are going some where we take her shoes in the car and wait till we get there to put them on.
Janna is doing well. She seems more lighthearted lately. Some times I think things are going well with the bonding process and then some days we take steps backwards.
Josie and Jillian are the closest of the girls. They still seek each other out for companionship.
I am so glad that summer days are finally here. All of the girls love to play outside.
Jamie had tear duct surgery this month. It does not seem to have helped much. She still wakes up with her eyes matted shut. She had an echo done of her heart to make sure every thing was okay and her heart is perfect!
Jillian is the only one that really likes to play in the water. I hope as the summer progresses that they will like it more.
They decided they would rather watch than play in the water.
I got up from this chair and Jamie was so proud of her self for taking it from me.
Josie thinks the water table is safer than the pool.
Sometimes Jillian can be such a clown!
