This fearless thing has already taken about 10 years off my life!!!! She is such a risk taker gross-motor wise and I can't take my eyes off of her for a second! She climbs on everything and likes her belly to be the point of contact on a raised surface and have her arms and legs hanging off. Zoya and Mila were/are so cautious gross-motor wise so this is going to take some getting used to! She is pulling to stand on everything, and she is loving her new found freedom! Some of the nicknames she has earned (in addition to Curlie Girlie) are: The Boss, Daredevil, The Destroyer, Peacock (she is LOUD!!), Fearless Leader, Firecracker, Wild Woman...you get the picture. Seriously, this child is SO FULL OF LIFE!!!!!!!! She doesn't let anything get in her way! I keep wondering how this BIG personality will be channeled as she gets older....hehehe, don't tell me, I'd rather just wait and see ;)
I tell ya, this child terrifies me! See....
|This child gives me heart palpitations!|
|Look at her foot pushing off the chair! I had to catch her!|
|Most of the time I think this girl has barely missed a beat spending her first 15 months in the orphanage! She is SO resilient!|
|This picture makes me laugh so hard! So telling of their personalities! Can you tell who the "good" student is? LOL!|
P.S. the cute desks were a gift from Uncle Bub and Aunt Corrine!
There is just something so different about this girlie! She has a wild, and very resilient spirit about her! And she is just so clever! She recently taught herself to drink from a straw cup (so thankful because I know what a lengthy and difficult process teaching kiddos to drink from a straw CAN be!)! She also figured out how to get the batteries out of one of the toys...the back was attached with screws....yikes and still trying to figure out how she did that! So yes, very clever indeed!
We are head over heels in love with our bundle of energy!!! I look at her spirit and am so thankful she gets to share it with her family and with the world instead of sharing it with the four walls of her orphanage room!
