Speaking of food she gobbled p yogurt melts and cherries before breakfast then congee, pork dumplings and fruit at breakfast. The girl loves to eat!
At 9:15 we met our guide who was in shock in the change in Olivia's demeanor overnight. I really thing co-sleeping was the answer. We headed back to the civil affairs building to finalize he adoption. It was amazing watching all of he little families that were formed yesterday taking their oaths.
On the way back to the hotel the guide had our driver stop at a local shop. We bought the girls some traditional silks. Poor baby was getting so tired since it was her nap time. We managed to keep her up and she finally crashed in her favorite spot....my chest when we got to the room. She is asleep now but keeps waking with moments of grief filled crying. World of difference today. Thank you to all who are praying.
After nap we enjoyed some quiet play time. She will only sit on my lap but is now interacting more with toys and has started feeding herself finger foods rather than just opening up for me to feed her. She got a bit fussy so went for a walk around the gardens at the hotel. She loved watching the fish and looking at the waterfall. We even got to hear her babble a few words. Once back in the room I had to change for dinner so Brad had her. She was upset so he decided to put her down to see if she can walk. Sure enough she ran with arms open wide to my arms. So sad yet so sweet at the same time. I will note that for two dinners in a row we have had to tell our guide, "No knuckles, no chicken heads, no snakes and no dog" before she orders for us. No lie!
