Reflecting on 2009--March
Stephen finally passed his tests to get to come home on March 10th. Since he was under 5 lbs with a shorter torso, he would not fit most car seats. As we look back at his pictures, he surely does look tiny, but at that time, he seemed pretty big compared to when we first met him.
Makana was such a good big sister, especially because she loves ALL the attention. Although she is still adjusting to sharing Daddy and Mommy's time and energy, she is thrilled to have Stephen as her brother. She is actually quite good with him as she interacts and entertains. :)
GiGi and Grandpa were already scheduled to come for Makana's 3rd birthday at the end of the month, so it was great timing to meet Stephen. :) Thankfully everyone stayed rather healthy, for Stephen was still very vulnerable to all sorts of diseases.
Makana decided she wanted a strawberry cake like one she had to assemble in one of her cutting activity books. Once she has an idea, it is difficult to sway her otherwise. I'm glad she actually chose that cake, for it was a fresh, yummy combination. :)
I thought Makana would burst with excitement the first time she was able to hold her brother. :)
