Hi Everyone
It seems like Kimberly is adjusting pretty well. She actually let us all take turns holding her today and she even let Todd hold and feed her. She still seems to prefer mommy to the rest of us but today she was really so sweet and happy and didn't seem to mind when Michelle left her sight. Took her to the pool and she actually liked the water after a few minutes. Madeline is such a little helper and doesn't stray too far from her sister, she always wants to keep touching her and hugging her and Kimberly loves the attention Madeline gives her.
It's amazing the number of babies we see when we are out by the pool that are leaving to go home with their parents, some from the US and others going back to Europe or Canada with their babies.
Here are a few more photos that we took today, the rest I'll save for the layouts that I'll be doing when I get home. Don't want to overdo it but we are all so thrilled and happy to finally have her with us it's hard not to share our joy.
