Gabriel has been home two weeks. Most of this week we all spent at home with bronchitis and conjunctivitis. We have seen great strides despite sickness in reductions of temper tantrums, understanding of household rules and a decrease of all the orphanage behaviors (kicking, hitting, biting, rocking) that we saw on pickup. She enjoys riding in the car and is loving tub time. She has also gained a significant amount of weight and height and we have noticed that the clothes she was wearing just 3 weeks ago are too small so she is now in 12-18 months.
We wrote letters to Santa earlier this week and Gabriel has asked for a pack of all purple crayons. Jude is looking for several different types of chocolate.
The girls act like they have been sisters forever. Jude is protective of Gabriel when we are at the doctor and Gabriel gets quite protective of Jude when I need to clip toenails.
