We've been visiting twice a day for a couple of hours each time. During our morning visit she usually gets pretty tired. She typically naps around 10:30. Today she fell asleep on me around 10:00 and we took her back, still sleeping, around 10:30. She said Dada again today while looking at Shawn! Still not sure if she's made the connection but it surely appeared that way! She is definitely starting to understand we are there for her and perks up when she sees us coming into her groupa! It's so hard because toward the end of her visit, it's as if she knows we're leaving. She gets very somber and holds onto me very tightly as I walk her back. It's already breaking my heart. I'm praying for things to move quickly so she can be home with her family where she belongs! Here are some black and white pictures of our little curlie girlie from our two visits today! We laughed when they put a "frog" outfit on her for the evening visit! We thought of Zoya's history with the word "frog" and just laughed. We are missing our girls at home, but so thankful we have this time to be with our girl here!
This child is seriously so full of happiness, it is unreal! Her spirit is amazing!
She looked adorable in her hat from Aunt Corrine!
Every so often she'll get serious and just stare at us, checking us out and giving us some beautiful soulful eye contact. Her eyes tell such a story!
A pretty bow for our pretty girl!
"Look what I have!"
She looks like I imagine heaven to be when she sleeps.
Sleeping right next to my "loved" necklace from Auntie Jodi....perfect picture!
I have to wonder if she's ever been able to just fall asleep in arms like this before. When she starts getting tired she wants to just be held and we don't mind one bit!
I love her perfect little mouth, her button nose, her tear-drop chin, and her wisps of hair!
She is a crawling maniac! We're going to have to babyproof a bit more! Mila is still army crawling and not so fast and prefers to mostly stay in the same place to play, but this one....we're in trouble here! I love it!
Safe in Daddy's arms forever!
Love this squishy happy baby face!
This is her stinker face! She is learning to blow raspberries too!
So content just snuggling!
We do have a name chosen for her and will announce it after court :) Sorry to keep you all waiting but you'll just have to pray for a quick court date if for no other reason than to hear her name LOL!
Our girls at home are doing well and we are so thankful for those who've stepped up to be with them when we can't. I look forward to the day all of our girls are under the same roof. This part of the process is tough having half of our family one place, and the other half in another. Soon enough they'll all be together, though!
