Newest American Citizen
Today was a Great Day! You are looking at the newest American Citizen! This morning Giovanni and I had an appointment at the US Consulate here in Milan to report Charlotte's birth abroad, apply for Social Security Card as well as a US passport! All went well and we should have her passport here in about 2 weeks!!! (camera's were not allowed in the consulate, so we took pictures at home) We are planning a trip back to Utah the first part of April!! Hope you are all looking forward to meeting Charlotte- she is sure ready to show you her smile!
The photos above are the proof of the 9euro I spent trying to get a good picture for her passport and Italian ID card- not an easy task. We went to the local grocery store that has a machine, the first one is the last one we took (Gio came with me to make things MUCH easier) the other two believe it or not were the BEST of 6 pictures- but that is because I had to put in the money, hold her up and dodge the camera while pushing the button with my elbow- what an exercise! I think I will soon be able to add contortionist to my repertoire of things I can do! Seriously, when one becomes a MOM you learn to do so many things One handed- or learn to use other body parts to help out! I am happy Gio helped- you can see the difference- this is good team work!
