Yesterday morning we got the bright idea to take shadow pics, so we found ourselves standing in the middle of the road for a good 5 min just snapping away. We did a bunch of different ones like:
Sidney showed major improvement and sat up all by herself for about 5 seconds! woo hoo! :) She is getting stronger and stronger everyday. I am so glad she is feeling better and has been able to fight the pneumonia off! She didn't mind her Beckman exercises and responded well to my singing! :) She was happy to get to enjoy therapy this afternoon on the porch with her twin sissy, Shelby.
At Haven 2 we pulled all our feeding kids to the porch for therapy since it was so nice outside. The weather here is amazing, but of course since its "winter" we had to put hats on all our little guys again. I got to work with Teagan and Meagan. Teagan is in LOVEEE with rice cereal. I couldn't get the spoon to her mouth fast enough for her. she is doing great. I had to take a pic of her in her LADYBUG dress because of my sorority. So precious!
Speaking of "gangsta". . . Check out MY ETHEL'S new hair do. Since I have been doing feeding therapy and not language therapy this week, I have really been missing her and haven't gotten to see her as much! This morning I about DIED when I saw her! haha. so funny. She looks like she belongs in a Coolio rap video,pimpin' in her truck! :) haha. I get THE biggest hugs from her and they just make my day. She might just have to be chitenged to me on the plane ride back!
This afternoon after me and Kaylee worked on our CAPSTONE research project, we headed over to the Haven to give the babies some extra love. When we got there, I met our newest addition to Haven 1. She hasn't been named yet, so we are all excited to learn more about her and get to work with her. :)
I was SOOOOO excited to see that Ian and some of the other guys on the mission were watching the first game of the world cup in the Haven! I sat playing with Shawn and got to watch part of the game! I have played soccer my whole life. . . even started out on a boys team (as the only girl) when I was itty bitty and played EVERY year up until my sophomore year when I had to quit for Tennis. . .so you can just imagine how SADDDDD I am that I am IN SOUTHERN AFRICA while the World Cup is going on in SOUTH AFRICA!!! AHHHH. such a TEASE!!! Rachel is a big soccer fan too so we have been whining to each other about how bad we wanna be there! Prob wouldn't be too safe for us there anyway, but mannnnn. we are SOOOO CLOSE!!!
Tomorrow the group plans to head into Choma to go shopping and visit the Museum again since Mrs. Tullos didnt get to go the first time with us! Kaylee, Caroline, and I have decided to sleep in and catch up on some major relaxing! woo hoo! We want to save our money for our trip to Livingstone next week. We have so many cool things planned such as going on a safari and going back to Victoria Falls in the day light. In addition...Kaylee, Rachel, and I plan on going on an Elephant Ride! It is supposed to be really neato! We read up on it and its a guided three hour tour! So its kind of pricey! No more chitenge shopping for us! Bring on the elephants!! haha!
