Mackenzie Day 8

We have officially had our little girl for over one week! Sometimes we feel like it has been much longer, and sometimes we are reminded that we are still getting to know each other. We also have to constantly remind ourselves that she is two, and when we add that with all of the very hard transitions that she has gone through in the past couple weeks, two years old is tough on this little girl. So considering everything, she is doing well. I am very glad we read all of the books we did before we adopted, because we are constantly discussing her behavior, and every action. We are seeing more trust from her, but also with that trust comes more testing, almost as if she is asking if we will still love her if she is not well-behaved…We are doing lots of holding time, and cuddles, and trying to carry her as much as possible.
She is so precious to us, and we want her to be as healthy emotionally as we can help her to be!
Here are some more “clean” pictures. She is quite the little ham! This is her favorite outfit, because of the “hua-huas,” which means flower. She LOVES flowers!
