Man, do I have these two nutballs
wrapped around my finger .... my plan is
working!!!!!! For anyone who watches
The Family Guy, meet Stewie's twin
sister separated at birth :oP.
|Here's our princess digging the swing
thing... she loves to swing and this will be
a must have at the house we have
learned....again, she truly has us
|We keep trying to get pictures of Lia
waving which she has learned to do
since our arrival - at least we would like
to think we have taught her how to
wave. She is great at mirroring your
actions as long as she thinks that it was
her idea. After about two rounds of
getting her to play along, she is off to
something new and exciting b/c she will
not sit still for long...she has her sea legs
and is ready for action. This is the type
of stroller they use here and she loves it
vs the conventional brella stroller. This
will be an interesting adjustment when
we have to switch her over to a brella
stroller for the trip home...Pray for
|Ok, Mom shows her to sniff it and she
does try and makes the screw face you
see below. Not sure if she has had
issues w/ daisies in her short history, but
it is a funny sight to see her try to sniff
and then compute what it is all
about...such a serious mug shot is this
|Today was a day of strolling and nature
hikes on the property. We talked w/ the
other couple who is here from Arizona
and we swapped stories on how to deal
w/ the crying jags and language barriers.
We have stopped calling her Vica and
call her Lia only. We are also trying to
only use English to help w/ the transition
so that she understands our praise and
encouragement when we play w/ her
during our visits.
|Here is the nature trail we walk along
and here is the monkey concentrating
with all her might. Oh, tomorrow we will
show you pictures of Daddy teaching her
to climb the stairs! SHE LOVES IT!
What can we say, she is a cheap date!
The little things amuse and entertain her.
|COURT DATE UPDATE - For all of you who were paying attention to our previous postings
where we mentioned our 1st court date was 6/7...... CONGRATULATIONS, you passed the test
and the check is in the mail. Actually there have been some changes (go figure) and now we only
have 1 court date and that was moved to Monday 6/13. This does not effect our travel dates at this
time. Keep the prayers coming and thank you for paying attention!!!!
