Sweet girl was tired this morning. We walked into her groupa to see her all dolled up. I almost didn't recognize her with the bows in her hair! She got a HUGE smile when she saw us. They asked me to feed her her breakfast and I did. She was not very happy AT ALL that we weren't taking her out to play right away. She started fussing and carrying on. One of the nannies talked to her (my guess is they were saying, "Oh you stop your shenanigans and eat your breakfast and then you can go play with mama and papa!") Boy did she listen to whatever they said! She only fussed like that once or twice but as soon as they talked to her she was good as gold! She wouldn't let Shawn out of her sight as I fed her. He actually had to come around by my side so we could get her to stop looking over at him and focus on eating!
She was so tired this morning and only lasted about an hour before she was going....going....gone in her Daddy's arms!
She rubs her eyes and literally a minute later she's out cold!
She is much livelier for our evening visits! She is so full of energy and life and pure excitement!
Look at her cute little outfit!!!
Just like her sisters she loves playing pat-a-cake and having me tickle her at the end!
Found a tickle spot on her neck!
I went to put her on the floor on her belly and she shot her legs and arms out and stayed like this for a bit...it was so funny! Shawn thinks she looks like a stuffed animal here! LOL!
The orphanage is putting up some Christmas decorations....we even caught a glimpse of Father Christmas!
Dancing with Daddy!
Love this face!
She's done this face several times and it cracks me up!
It reminds me of Mila's "smile for the camera flash" face!!
She loved playing this game with Daddy! He would walk away and then sneak up on her and tickle her!
This little girl has our hearts already...who am I kidding? She had them from day 1! She is truly amazing. I will say she is NOT going to be the laid back child we've joked about adopting each time now....ahh it's more fun to have the live wires anyways!
We went on a death defying taxi ride tonight. Most of the taxi rides here are death defying, but this one, oh this one was.....special. It was raining hard and dark (it gets dark really early here-like at 3:30pm) and we were on our way to the orphanage. Our taxi driver was working hard to speak to us using his limited English. He kept asking if we were missing...we figured out he meant missionaries. We told him no but we were going to the children's home to adopt babies. He didn't understand that so I said, "Take babies to America" and he said AHHHH! YES!!! Just then Shawn squealed from the front seat, "AAAAHHHHH IT'S A PERSON!" We almost ran over an old lady trying to cross the street...we were pretty close, like we might have clipped her toenail off maybe. YIKES! It's always an adventure. There are HUGE pot holes here and no drainage system so with all this rain it's been extra interesting! I think a good rule of thumb is, "you've been here too long when you start giving the taxi driver directions to get to the orphanage."
We don't have any news on court yet, keep praying!
