Settling In

by bill - 2008-01-03 - ( family / holmes / elizabeth )

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, which is pretty fast, really. It's taking longer to get used to the cat because the cat hides away so much.

She's learning English slowly, but Tara and I can't let go of our Russian just yet. I'm curious now to see which Russian words, if any, STAY in Elizabeth's daily vocabulary over the next few years.

Overall, she's really a very happy, well-adjusted and adaptable little girl! (knock on wood)
