Well, it's hard to believe that we have been home 3 months with Karine (Antonia)! She is doing wonderful!! What a joy she is to our family! We could not imagine our lives without her. She is starting to say a few words. She is so good communicating with her hands! We have no trouble understanding her. She loves to help me with the household chores and loves to imitate what we do, especially her big brother. She likes to do things on her own. She's very independent for her age. She LOVES animals, especially horses and cows! Dogs as well, as she tries to touch them when she sees one. When we first got home, she was afraid of the sand. She didn't want to play in the sand box or walk in it at the park but when we went to the beach, her eyes lit up when she saw the water (she loves the water!) then, she didn't mind walking in the sand. She actually played in it with her brothers.
She loves to laugh and play with her little tea set. She doesn't like to be told no and will stomp her feet and not move an inch but we manage to distract her quite easily. She has grown over 2 centimeters since we've been home and her hair is getting longer. I've attached a few recent pictures of her.
I hope everything is going well with all of you and will keep you posted on how she's doing!
