Home One Month!

It's hard to believe that we have already been home for a month now!
Myliah is doing so much better than we could have asked for! Her attachment and bonding has been incredible! She definately knows strangers from her Mommy and Daddy! She is still not sleeping through the night every night but we are working on it and I'm sure it will come soon. She is taking 5-6 ounces of formula every four hours and is eating cereal in the mornings, and sometimes baby food at night for dinner if we can get her too. She loves mashed potatoes and breads! She is saying several words now like Hi,Bye-Bye,Yay,Hey,Dada,Mama(when she is sleepy),Nite-Nite so she is coming along quite nicely with her English! We have had a couple of people ask us if she will speak her native language or English!! Yes, that's a hard one to respond to but we just say English and go on!! LOL!
She is crawling all over the place and is getting into everything. Pulling up on anything that looks sturdy enough and learning that not everything can handle her weight! Speaking of weight, she has a weight check tomorrow to make sure that she is gaining adequately. She was diagnosed with Reflux and being lactose intolerant after coming home and she spits up ALOT so we are praying for good news on the weight check! She will do anything for a laugh and has so many silly faces!!
We are busy working on our one month update for our agency and starting on her re-adoption paperwork. It is not required for Florida but in the long run, it will be better for her. We will file our own paperwork to the courts and go before the judge to make it official.
As you can imagine, we are so happy and blessed to have this sweetie in our family and we can't get enough of her!! She brings so much happiness to our family! I think she gets tired of all the kisses sometimes but that's ok, they won't be stopping! She will just have to get used to it!!
As far as personality goes.........I think the pictures sum her up pretty well!!!

Thanks to Page Phelps for the beautiful pics!!
