Our visit tonight went well. Zoya actually stayed in the stroller without crying for an hour! This strawberry vibrating teether has done wonders for her! I will give it to her for about 3 minutes and she will chew on it and look really really relaxed and spaced out! After using it just for a few minutes she seems to be very calm for the next half hour or so! Shawn says they should make vibrating pacifiers which I think is a fabulous idea. Anyone know if they do? If not, we could patent that...along with the money shorts! I forgot to mention earlier that Shelly, who brought the bag of great things for Zoya and us, also threw in some SHOWER SHOES for us! yay!!! I've never been happier to have flip flops :) Thank you again Shelly! Shelly also brought a coat and snowpants for Zoya. This was perfect timing as her 2nd orphanage coat wasn't working out so well...way too big and another broken zipper. We took it with us tonight and it fit great! She looked like a fat little purple snowman! Those of you at home wondering clothing sizes...she is right between 12-18 months from what we have tried on her. I will probably buy a few 12 month things and then mostly 18 month things for summer, as I'm pretty sure she'll be out of the 12 month size soon.
Here is a picture of Zoya in her great purple coat with her great purple pants and her great taggy blanket that Shelly and her daughter made for Zoya. Zoya really enjoys sucking and chewing on the tags on this blanket...and one side of the blanket is textured with bumpy soft fabric that is so cool! It even has a little "RR" embroidered on it for Reece's Rainbow! This blankie is so special and I think Zoya is already attached!
Prayers are very much appreciated!
