This is what the made left on our bed yesterday.
Cool, but all I could think was-- EXTRA TOWELS!
Natalie Kay continues to amaze us. How can such a delicate flower be so spirited and persistent?
It is wonderful to see that she has likes and dislikes. That is an indication that she has regular interactions with her caretakers. She has her own little personality and it is a blessing to get to know her over these few days.
We got to meet with the social worker today. Here I am talking to her through our translator.
While she warmed up to us immediately this morning and smiled and cooed, she also had a little meltdown. Literally. It was pretty hot out and the only thing that eventually calmed her was removing half of her clothing and allowing her to sit in her stroller w/o our body heat next to her. Perhaps she was overly stimulated as well, but we know that she was especially hot. Her cry started out very quiet and faint but as we continued to fail at different things to calm her, it got louder and more persistent. She stopped as soon as we figured it out. She also wanted to chew on the toy in the picture. Her hand would not do and neither would John's finger (like she had preferred yesterday).
We are looking forward to our afternoon visit with her. It is pure enjoyment to watch her personality blossom!
For lunch we went to a little shop with the words Asian Food across the top. We were able to point to the food we wanted behind the counter. Two plates of food with two sodas cost a little over 8 leva which is equivalent to $6. And the food was awesome! Made me think of a few of my daughters at home who adore Asian food.
Today the maid left flowers on our bed.
