Day 2 - First giggles!
What a difference a day makes! Mlle O. was very cuddly and smiled so much more today!! At one point, she was positively beaming up at me and let out this huge sigh..(like to say, wow.. I've got it good!)...I can't tell you how happy we were... We can't stop hugging her.
I'm also happy to report that she's now more intrigued by Sven....She just needs some time to warm up to both he and Yannik....She's simply not used to men. I had her touch their faces, noses and hands and she just laughed and had this look on her face. I think she thought, how bizarre are those fellows ;0))
She also took to her doll today as well as her blocks. She was alot more active. She is starting to respond to our nickname for her. She also looked back as we said "paka" - bye...all good signs, but the one I hold most dearly too is how strongly she holds me and walks straight into my arms.
Sven and Yannik are making a snowman right now before the snow melts. It's warmed up today. Yannik also made a snowman with me indoors...and our Christmas tree ;0)) We've decided to make a Christmas mural! This morning we strolled out to the Iceberg to pick up a few items and I ventured into the stores again to see whether I could find something for Mlle O. There are absolutely no signs of the holidays...a tad depressing... I miss the atmosphere...so we are going to make up for it.
