Joyful Girl!

Our sweet daughter is so full of JOY! It is unreal! The difference we've seen already after only 3 visits is astonishing! I just love her to pieces already and she makes me laugh so hard! She and Mila are both class clowns so I think our house will be pretty funny! Zoya will be highly entertained!

For this morning's visit we took her outside, but only after they bundled her so heavily that she couldn't even move! Her snowsuit was lined with fur and 3 sizes too big, it was the cutest thing ever, but she was sweating so bad and fell asleep so we only stayed outside for about 15 minutes before heading in to play.

She was much more active and playful today! She can crawl and pull up to her knees on furniture when she sees something she wants. She made some "dada" and "baba" sounds today, but mostly very happy yelling! It is the cutest thing ever!!! When it was time to take her back she got very quiet and held tight as we made the walk down the long hallway. She looked at me with the saddest puppy dog eyes ever and I just wanted so badly to take her and run!!!!!!!!!

Too hot to stay awake! 

Angel face! 

My sweet girl I am your mama and you will never be alone again! 

Funny girl!!!!

She was doing her happy yell/growl's hysterical! 

She LOVES these beads, just like her sisters!!


She is so curious! And active!


Mila does this with her hands too when she is really excited!!! 

Sweet, joyful girl! You've been found forever!!!!!!!!

  9. The photos are hysterical, sweet, uplifting and just plain joyful.

    She is adorable in the outfits. Although the snowsuit that she is swimming in is funny to see her so bundled up, no big shock by now but always makes me giggle every time I see it.
