Yeah, I know it's already almost the end of January. My resolution should be to blog more :) It wouldn't be hard to succeed.
I've also been bad at taking pictures this month. Sorry. This is going to be a pretty pictureless blog post.
We're trying to work with Ana and Javi on being more comfortable with other people looking after them. They have only ever been in the care of me, Juan, Steve & Emily, and their grandparents. One way we're working on this is by going to church more often and taking them to the nursery to play while we're at Mass. The first week was okay. They were both just confused when we left them there, so they didn't cry until they figured out we were gone. When we went to pick them up we found that Javi had been crying a bit. The nursery volunteers said that Ana just cried when someone else cried. :) She's empathetic like that.
Week 2 was a little better. Javi was totally fine when we left but Ana was crying crying. When we went to pick them up, Javi was in the foyer looking out the window with one of the nursery volunteers. He had been upset but was doing okay. Ana was happily playing until she saw us and burst into tears.
Week 3 will be great, right?? Too bad the nursery is closed the next 2 weekends for a retreat. Sheesh.
