|Clinging to her little purse this morning that LeighAnn made her|
Linnea was eating yogurt and snack items but not drinking much. We were told she used a sippy cup but maybe we don't have the same kind of sippy cups she is used to. However, when we put a straw in a regular cup she knew exactly what to do and drank a whole small glass of apple juice. So today we went out and got two sippy cups with straws! For breakfast she pretty much ate crackers, a little yogurt, apple juice and some milk. She didn't want any congee (Chinese version of a warm cereal) or much else but we felt like we made good progress today. Now she is drinking regularly and eating some throughout the day.

The rest of the day is free time. I think this is the day when you finally can relax a bit but you sure do feel tired from all the run around from gotcha day. LeighAnn and Linnea are taking a rest now and we plan to just take it easy the rest of the afternoon. We may take a late afternoon ride to the store as we did not bring any 12 month clothes. We brought 24 month and 18 month clothing and are having to safety pin the 18 month old clothes. She is little...tall but thin.
|Her smiles and personality starting to come out!|
We can definitely start to see Linnea's personality coming out. She is starting to make noises and it sounds like she is about ready to talk to us. She is smiling, laughs a bit and you can tell she is building her trust with us. She has no problem going to either of us so that is good.
Hope you enjoy the pictures! She is a precious little girl!
