Welcome to Italy Rosalie!

Rosalie is officially 1 week old today!

Today we had an appointment at the Aviano Town Hall to register Rosalie and make her name official! We had already filled out most of the paperwork at our 36 week class at the hospital. We met the translator at 3 and started processing all the paperwork. Within a half an hour Rosalie was registered in Italy!

While there, the translator and the woman that did the paperwork couldn't stop talking about Kevin. They ranted and raved how cute it was watching him with Rosalie. The town hall lady said she loved seeing a father interact with a child as much as Kevin did.

Rosalie had Kevin just roaring during the appointment. There was Italian music playing in the Town Hall and she was bopping her head with the beat of the music. I wish I could have seen it, but he just thought it was hysterical!

Now that she is registered in Italy, we can move onto processing her paperwork to make her a US citizen. Boy, there is so much work involved in having an outta country child! We have an appointment tomorrow to apply for her birth certificate, social security card, and passport. While there we're going to get Kevins passport to so we can start traveling to other countries. We have to add her to all Kevin's paperwork to make her a dependent and enroll her in tricare. ah super busy day tomorrow!

It's crazy how much this lil girl has changed in a week! She's so much more alert during the day and is constantly moving around! She loves tummy time and her little legs just keep going! She's on a great sleep schedule. We get up once in the middle of the night, then she gets up again between 5-6. I'm not complaining!

Well that's all I have for now!
