Given that we live in Brussels where so many callously bump us on the street and in the grocery store aisles - and the stores seem put out by customer interaction - I didn't remember what it was like to be served like royalty. To have your needs and desires met before you could even voice them. But that is exactly what we felt like...Princess seemed a fitting name.
Here are some images of Connor with some of her favorite friends:Mihaela from Romania managed the breakfast buffet. She would dote on Connor all through breakfast, giving us time to eat in peace while her conversation provided the engagement and entertainment. Every morning she would ask Connor where she was going that day. So we helped prep our daughter with a daily answer before our meal. It was a big game and Mihaela and her staff would just gasp in amazement when Connor accurately answered her question, "Helsinki!" or "Stockholm!" or "St. Petersburg!" They acted like she was just the smartest, sweetest, most beautiful child they had ever seen with sincerity and love.
