We had a great day today with her--it felt like Christmas. We picked her up at the orphanage at 6:30am and kept her with us until 5 this evening (and putting her back in that crib was the hardest it's been yet). We had a nice morning in the hotel, letting her nap on the bed, giving her a bath, dressing her in cute clothes (the butterfly dress the boys picked out with Aunt Kelsey), a headband, and a bow, feeding her (or trying to!), playing with her. She was happy, entertaining, animated, and talkative. We learned she can roll, push up on her hands when she's on her tummy, and sit if you balance her. She was silly today and we ate it up. We also got to skype with all the grandparents and the boys, so they got to see her in action. The boys made silly noises the whole time, and Laina cooed right back. We can't WAIT to see them all together. They're going to have so much fun!
We had a bit of trouble getting Laina to eat. She doesn't know how to suck, so we had to keep making the hole in the bottle larger so it basically would drip into her mouth. She chews on the nipple, but she won't suck on it. And she likes that formula hot! (All the babies do.) But after some messy trial and error, we got her to eat at least some. Better luck tomorrow.
We get to pick her up early again tomorrow morning and go to church with her for the first time. Can't wait!
