But onto more earth shattering events now, we had our second day of visits with Leah today, I can safely say, without a hint of new parental pride or bias that she really is the cutest girl in all of Kazakhstan, once you see the pics in a day or so you will wholeheartedly agree!! Apart from a stinker of a cold she was in great form again today, she is very nosey and is interested in everything, her two favorite things today were Amanda's hair which she grabbed anytime it was close and my watch which she did her best to tear off my wrist! She is also starting to teeth and every little book or rattle we have for her goes straight into her mouth. We can't wait until we are able to bring her home, unfortunately we have another 6 weeks of hoops to jump through first.
We're just back from a walk to the 'Daniel' supermarket and are slowly thawing out, the funny thing about walking in minus 30 is the first 5-10 mins you think 'pfft, this is easy, whats all the fuss' the next 10 mins go like this, 'hmm, it is pretty chilly actually' finally the last 10-15mins, 'we may actually die out here'!!!
In Victor news he has exchanged the black suit for a shellsuit and medalion, most people would struggle to pull this look off...... he manages it! We wouldn't be surprised if Victor had something to do with the earthquake!! 0.o
Be patient, hopefully we can post some pics by tomorrow.
God is good, keep praying!
