Bringing Dariya home: Another good day

Our second day visiting with Dariya went well.  She comes and hugs us both when she sees us and goes outside with us easily.  She cries for just a bit when we take her in to leave. 

Dariya loves to watch cars (machinas).  Note taken, be very careful with her and her passion for motor vehicles.  When  she sees one she says, "beep, beep".  We showed her the sign for car and she did it immediately and made an "ar" sound.  This girl is a keeper!  But, you already knew that. 

We brought some animal cracker like snacks today and she was having none of it.  I guess we will stick to bananas she really liked those yesterday.

As the other kids walk around from other groupas they greet us with good afternoon (in russian of course) it is the cutest thing!

I took my tape measure to get Dariya's measurements and what do you know she and Alayna could be twins!  Seriously, they had one measurement that was a half inch off but otherwise they are exactly the same.  The one difference I notice is Dariya's feet are pudgie (like our dear buddy LC) where as Alayna's are not.  So Dariya will definitely be wearing a larger shoe just to accomodate the Fred Flintstones she has happening at the end of her legs.

I know enough of the chatter...here is what you really came for.

She LOVES for you to kiss her neck!

The purse and and phone are her favorites, she wanders around babbling with the phone up to her ear.

Please let Ms. Erin know that we got in a good PT workout today she climbed up this slide for nearly 20  minutes and slide down again


We will probably be asked to hose her off before we bring her back in because she is a mess when we take her back!  Oops!
She LOVE, LOVE, LOVES the water!  Hope she enjoys the pool and bath as much!


In case the pictures don't win you over here is another video to make you smile.

She is so tired when we leave, she literally could fall asleep in my arms.  We are so thankful for this journey...

Looks like you and she are bonding well. Praying it will go as well when you get her home. You are awesome for taking on this God-given responsibility. Hope she always knows what special parents she was given to! God bless.
