So we have discovered that Alina is a little "worker bee"--she works/plays hard.
She loves the cleaning set I got for Bridget last year (Bridget likes it, too). And she is thorough. When she mops, she gets underneath and behind the furniture. She moves stuff to clean under it, too.
We sat down as a family tonight to talk about life with Alina, how things have changed (or not) since she arrived, and how we feel about her.
I have pictures, details, descriptions and stories to share over the next few days. I'll answer the questions people have asked about her assimilation process and about how the rest of the group has done with a new little sister.
Feel free to ask any questions through the comments section here or via email. I'll try to get to each request :). Please stay tuned...
