It's amazing how much has changed in the past 6 years. Poor Chance has now been downgraded to #2. She's still kinda indifferent to Brooklyn, but she is getting more and more curious in her as time passes
Brooklyn's first trip to Amsterdam today to apply for her US birth registration/citizenship, passport & social security #
We ate some lunch in Chinatown before heading home.

To all our parent friend veterans, we need your advice. We are trying to introduce Brooklyn to taking bottled breastmilk that I've pumped, but without much success. She hasn't taken to a pacifer either. I leave the room while Joe tries to give her the warmed bottle, but now after a handful of days of trying she cries at the sight of the bottle. Any advice beyond Joe going with The Manary Gland (strap on breast) that Robert De Niro wore in Meet the Fockers which he will not do...
Soon Brooklyn was asleep as we moved the stroller along the cobblestone pavers through the crowd.
Brooklyn woke back up again but was still very content.
It's official, she belongs. Now just have to make her legal to live in the Netherlands
Her face in her passport photo will make us laugh every time we see it for the next 5 years. It looks like a mugshot.
We walked around the town for a little bit.
Brooklyn did good all bundled up in the stroller again, getting in a little sleep
Brooklyn was much more alert at this market. I think she knew how good this one was comparatively and wanted to see it all.
I simply can't wait until our Christmas cards go out before I share this beautiful photo of our sweet Brooklyn I took recently. Brooklyn wishes everyone a Happy Sinterklaas and St. Nicholas Day!
