Today was bonding day #3. We stayed our full two hours and it was great! She was happy to see us when we got there and she was getting dressed in her 'pretty clothes'. I think they do that when parents are coming to visit. Otherwise, boys and girls wear outfits interchangably regardless of color. So, I saw a boy in a pink outfit today - it's rather funny.
Anyway! We had a great time visiting with her. We played for about 45 minutes and then we went back to her room and I got to feed her lunch. It was soup and for her they put her bread in the soup because they said she doesn't really like to eat bread. (Dad - you'll have to work on this with her...) Then there was some meat mush, it smelled like chicken... and potatoes. She ate about 1/2 of what was on her plate of that. Then there was another 1/2 piece of bread and a cup of tea! Yes, that's right, tea. They give the kids tea. Amazing! And I don't mean a sippy cup, I mean a good old fashioned tea cup. And you should hear this girl slurp it up!! I kept Matthew on a bottle until he was two! LOL. Then, back to the play room! Since she didn't want to eat her bread, she grabbed on to it for dear life, and carried it around for a while... While she played, while she crawled on the floor. Every now and then she'd take a small bite. After a while, it was disintegrating, and when she put it down to pick up a toy, we took it away. She never really missed it.
She liked playing with the stacking cups and although she can't stack them, she could put the smaller ones in the larger ones and quite enjoyed that. She also liked going to my bag and routing through it as any good child likes to do in their mother's stuff.
I was told today she doesn't much like milk... Uh - oh - we'll definitely have to work on THAT! Matthew and I are great milk drinkers (and I do mean American milk...)
She laughed and laughed today. It was just so awesome! She does this really neat thing where she'll lean her forhead in to my head so I can kiss her. She'll do it again and again. So cute.
She loves to play with mom!! Mom really can get her laughing too - she's so much fun.
I'm getting closer to a name, but nothing set yet. Last change to EMAIL me your thoughts/vote. (Of course, you know I may not listen... but speak now (again) or forever hold your peace.)
Here is the sneak peek today of her -
