|My awesome sister in law, travel companion and helper!|
|What started as a picture of Emma and Abbi turned into a photo op for a family with "The American's"|
|BEAUTIFUL (at least from the airport) Hong Kong! I hope to go see more of it some day!|
|Waiting waiting waiting!|
Abbi did AMAZING on the flight home!!! She slept pretty much the whole way and when she didn't sleep she was in a great mood most of the way! It was when we got to Texas that she was up and down bug honestly we were all pretty done at that point and praying that we would get a fight out! That last leg of the trip was the hardest last time and for sure this time as well. Jet lag did not disappoint-to bed at 12am woke up at 3am for the day :/ Emma on the other hard bounced back pretty quick! Must be nice!

Abbi has adjusted so so well! The three older girls just love her go death and all her sweet Abbi-isms. Nina tolerated her for the first few weeks but now we are starting to see some signs of regression. Which is hard to watch since we have gone through regression a few times with her already and I just wish I knew how to help her through it, but we will. Because Nina has regressed since her last hospital stay, food is sacred to her, no ones food is safe, unfortunately Abbi's either, and being she just came from living four years of hoarding food, well it can make meal times interesting. Also Nina still does not grasp personal space, so when she walks she pretty much barrels through who ever is in front of her. For the other kids, this usually is not too big of a deal (aside from Isac, it drives him nuts), but can cause some interesting issues between Abbi ad Nina. All issues that I am sure over time will work them selves out. Levi LOVES his new sister!!! And she him! Which I was not too surprised by given how well she welcomed Nina and Isac, He is always looking out for her, wanting to give her food and toys and helping her out if she falls. Isac is a pretty passive kid. He likes Abbi, and will play with her but if a person is not returning the attention the same he becomes uninterested and being Abbi can not talk, it makes it hard for her to communicate that to him. And Abbi is head over heels for her daddy! It's as if she has been waiting her life for him! At first that is all she wanted but it has gradually evened back out.
Since home, we have already had Abbi's and Nina's Neurologist appointment and pediatrician visit.
I will update more on that in the next blog!
Thank you all for your prayers, love and comments! Some of them truly kept me going some days!!!!
