Two Weeks with Lauren

Today we mark two weeks since we brought Lauren into our family.  We have been hanging close to the house and have not seen any friends or family (except Amber & Eddie) since we are trying to get healthy and get a new routine established for Lauren.  We did venture out to Walmart and Costco yesterday, we needed to get some 2T's for Lauren since she is not wearing all the layers she had on in China to keep warm even the 3T pants were constantly falling down on her.  We also needed to get her some more shoes and some sandals to wear. Costco was to stock up on all our basic food needs since we tried to clear out the refrigerator and freezer before we left back on Dec 28th (seems so long ago).

Lauren is doing better, she still goes through moments when you know she is sad and confused, but she is back to smiling and laughing, learning boundaries and playing with her sister Hannah.

Oh - as you can see from the photos, as soon as you get her in the car seat and start moving, she falls asleep!

First trip out since we arrived home.

Typical once we start moving.

First Costco experience.
This afternoon, waving hi to dad.


  1. Love seeing the pictures. Glad things are getting back to normal. Blessings

  2. Debbie we so appreciate your kind thoughts and prayers. It's good to know we're being lifted up by people who've acknowledged their concern.
    God bless and keep you.
