Doctors say she’s normal

Tara took Elizabeth to the “international adoption specialist” doctors today for a psychological evaluation and another physical exam. They say she is perfectly average/normal for a girl her age. Of course, that puts her well above average for a foreign orphan.

We think she’s better than any other girl her age, but we might be biased.

Baby shower

Tara’s female family and friends threw Elizabeth a baby shower last weekend. I was the only man there. The only reason I went was so that any other men showing up wouldn’t be the only man. Oh well. I was able to get a lot on video, and Tara took pictures.

Luncheon

I can’t believe how nice my coworkers at Franklin are. On Friday, they had a luncheon at work for Elizabeth and Tara. They invited me, too. 🙂
Great food, several gifts, and the biggest surprise: a money tree. Tara and I were speechless at that. It’s not like my coworkers have any more
“spare” money than we do. Don’t worry, we’ll spend it all (

Settling in

I just thought I’d mention that Elizabeth is settling into her new life pretty well. Tara is her full-time parent, I just appear after work and on weekends. 🙂 Even then, it’s Tara who does most of the work.

Elizabeth’s biggest hurdle so far has been getting used to our pets, three pugs and a cat. She’s ALMOST completely used to the pugs by now
