Day 9

Today was a great day. It was a quite day at the orphanage because it is Saturday, but when we got there Johannah was eating so they asked us to wait so she could finish eating, because is she sees us she won't finish. So we went and got Ellee from her groupa. After a few minutes here comes Johannah down the hall and it was so funny because she was going as fast as her little legs would take her, and her poor caretaker was trying to keep up with her. After a few seconds she just let her go and let her run to me. What I didn't realize, and it was probably 5 minutes before I realized it, was she had stuffed a whole cookie in her mouth because she was so excited to see us. So I did what any mommy would do and made her spit half of it into my hand. We of course threw that away, and we played for a little while before we had cookies and juice. We were in a different playroom today because the other playroom had a lot of little bitties in there today and so we got to play in the room that has the ball pit and the slide, and boy do our girls LOVE  to slide. The visit went by so fast today. :( Johannah did NOT want to go back to her groupa today, she kicked and screamed at her daddy. I had to stay out in the hallway, it just broke my heart to see her doing that. But soon very soon!!! I just have to keep reminding myself of that. Ellee is always ready to go back because it means it is time to eat. She gives kisses and hugs and she is gone. Her new thing that we taught her was how to blow kisses. She is so cute doing. She also learned to sign more. Yay!!! They are such smart girls! Luba, most of you know her, but she is adopting Sophie through Reece's Rainbow and she is from Russia, and she has been such a blessing because she was able to ask Ellee's caregivers today some questions for me. We were going to ask Johannah's caregivers some questions too, but she was so upset when we left I didn't want to go back in there an upset her more. After we left the orphanage today we took the bus, it was interesting and we did good, of course Luba was there with us and was a BIG help. Tomorrow we are going to try it on our own, we will see how that goes. But it is a quarter to ride the bus anywhere you want to go!!! Who could pass that up? Ok Ok on to the good stuff... First picture is the picture if Johannah with the cookie in her mouth.
