Then she got a little scared by a pillow that I moved closer to her and she began to cry. Paul got out a tissue to wipe her nose and she took it away from him to wipe it herself! She would only give him the old tissue if he gave her a new one. Then she had a good time playing in the mirror for a while but when she got tired, around nap time, she cried again. This time she cried off and on for a while but she would not take a nap. She calmed down and Daddy ordered her some room service. She is not afraid to eat! She packed away a whole plate of fried rice with vegetables
She finally let Paul hold her and rocked her to sleep in his arms and laid her on the bed at 2:45, about one and a half hours after her nap time was supposed to start. I hope she goes to sleep tonight!
Well, I know everyone wants to know about her health. She uses her upper body in a completely normal way. She has great fine motor skills! She could hold a crayon better than some five year olds I've seen. She has not done much talking but she can hear and understand very well. Of course, she doesn't understand us, but she could understand our guide when she spoke to her!
She can move her legs and she can slowly crawl somewhat but she does not walk. She can stand with my help but her feet are so turned that when she stands she is standing on the top of one of her feet. One foot turns out and the other in and under. Maybe when we get her club feet corrected she will walk. I can not be sure. Her legs are not strong so she may need braces or maybe just some therapy. Dr. Johnson will be happy to hear that her teeth are so white! But one tooth is chipped. Over all, she seems to be in good health. No lice, no scabies and no runny nose!
Hopefully, she will wake up and play some more soon. I am excited to see her personality! So far she is a little shy but very curious about everything.
