We had a short visit sunday afternoon because our taxi driver was not available until almost half way through the visiting hours. We got to explore a new little play area on the orphanage grounds. Although it looked very similar to the other one, it was a little cleaner so we liked it better. When Mia came out she had what looks like blue marker all over her knees. It is the medicine they use to put on the children. The other day when we had her outside she fell and scraped her knee and this is how they treat it.
We are realizing each day how little this child has been exposed to in her 4 years. She has no idea what to do with books, she had never seen stickers. We brought her these stickers and she really enjoyed discovering what they were all about. We are learning that her fine motor skills seem to be really good!
We always sit inside this little pavillion on the bench for most of the visit and then we go for a little walk around the grounds and venture to some of the slides and things.
Putting the stickers on dad's nose is lots of fun!
We pulled out the touch and feel cards and she didn't know how to touch the fuzzy parts. Once she saw how she loves them. Today she even copied a few words and sounds the animals make. She is so curious and wants to learn new things.
There is nothing like the security and safety you feel in the arms of your dad!
She is ticklish in her neck too!
We are guessing that this crib is outside to be used as a playpen type area for the babies when the kids are outside on the play equipment. Maybe that is what Mia sleeps in....we still don't know.
Sunday evening after our visit we had our taxi driver go to McDonalds so we could have a meal. McDonald's here is SO busy all the time and I swear it tastes better than back home....well either that or we are just REALLY hungry. I will have to share more about our eating challenges later!
