Cici Day

I don't have words yet for today.

It was overwhelming.

All the Yangxi girls seemed to handle the transition really well. Cici wasn't thrilled with how we prepared her bottle when we got home and lost it for a while. She and I took a nap and she's coming around again. She's very suspicious of all of us. There are times when I can see the grief coming through full force. 

I am going to just post some pictures b/c I need to make a second attempt at a chinese bottle. 

More later or tomorrow!
