Piper and Tess

So, I was going to try to write a little about each girl and her personality. I started writing and then just realized it was useless. I really don’t know enough about them to do that. I thought I did, but as I started writing I realized I don’t really have much to say as I really know so little at this point. 
What I do know is — Piper, though seemed so bossy and sure of herself at first, actually seems so very unsure frequently throughout the day. An example — we spent a little time baking today and several of the kids joined in.
Everybody helped a little at something — whether it was mixing or adding ingredients or whatever. Piper and Tess were very interested. They both came to join in. Tess seemed very sure of herself and was very anxious for a chance to help. Given the spoon and the batter, Tess took over like she had worked in a bakery. 


Piper also wanted to help, but when given the spoon to mix a little she seemed so uncertain of what to do and almost scared to do anything. It was strange for me as I watched her face — I have always thought of her as being so bold and aggressive. She sure seemed that way at first, but maybe it was not really her — I just don’t know. 

Piper mixed and helped and seemed to enjoy herself but when she had to do something alone she definitely seemed a little uncertain. This does not seem like the same little girl that ran into our hotel room that first day. She kept looking at me to make sure everything was ok. Just so uncertain. 
They both did seem to enjoy the whole baking process, though. We made several things so everybody would have a chance to help. 


 The girls fight a lot. They still hit and kick all the time. Piper is extremely jealous. She doesn’t even like me to take a picture of Tess. When I try, she will run in front of the camera and that makes Tess furious. It takes a little work to get a picture of Tess alone as Piper is always there to join in the picture. As long as I get both girls in the picture, Piper is happy. Just don’t leave her out!



It is going to take some time before I really get to know them and can write much about them other than just day to day stuff. We are busy learning about each other and getting to truly know each other and that will take a little time. But, things are going pretty well and I have high hopes that things will get even better.



The Elevator

Things have been rather hectic since we got home — sick kids, CF appointments, etc. I keep meaning to do a post on the girls and how they are doing, but just haven’t gotten around to it yet. It will be coming soon, though. 
I ran across this picture of Piper in the elevator and had to post it. It reminds me so much of all the times the girls raced to see who could push the button for the elevators first and then they would jump on as soon as the door would open and try to be the first to push again. They never got tired of the competition. Who could get to the elevators first and then who could jump in first. We had to be careful as several times they raced ahead and almost got in an elevator and left us behind. 
Piper was first this time and you can see by her reflection in the elevator door she was happy!
