Busy Weeks

We have been incredibly busy the last couple weeks. The girls are doing wonderfully and have adjusted better than I expected in such a short period of time. They had their first doctor's appointment, PT evaluation and OT evaluation this week. They passed all with flying colors. They are right on target for everything and not delayed at all. I was a bit surprised by this as most children from orphanages do have some delays. I am sure we will have to do speech, but one out of three is pretty good. Unfortunately, they did have two have 3 shots and six tubes of blood a piece taken. Plus, we have to go back this week and have more blood taken - poor babies.
Other exciting things we did in the last several weeks were - trip to the beach, boat ride, trip to College Station for Ashley's Med School graduation and lots of swimming. They have enjoyed every minute of it and have been so well behaved.
We were also thrown a baby/toddler shower. I can't thank my hostesses enough as the shower turned out beautifully. There were so many special touches that they did to make it exciting and fun for me and the girls. We got a ton of stuff and I am still trying to find places for all of it. My sisters made most of the food and decorations so that they could do them extra special. They are incredibly talented and no one would have believe that it wasn't done by professionals. I was totally impressed. I will try to post pictures soon, but I don't have them yet. It was lots of fun!!
I will write more soon.
