We had a great day today!! We made it to the orphanage on time and we were not soaking wet! Yay!! The weather was really sunny and nice. It is definitely fall here and much cooler than I expected it to be. I packed for summer type weather, thinking of how hot they were saying it was here this summer. Silly me… but oh well, hopefully it won’t get too cold while we’re here. I already got some looks the other day when I was wearing shorts. Everyone here is dressing for late fall/early winter weather. Back home, I know most people are still wearing shorts even into December. And we don’t live in Florida, we're in Colorado….. Oh joy!
We had a great visit with the girls, too! Magda was in a much better mood and we even got some smiles from Arianna! She is starting to warm up to us more and we are happy about that! Today, Magda came in with a pacifier. She really sucks away on that binky, so we’re thinking that was part of her problem yesterday. She was chewing on her hands like crazy and I think she might just be used to having it! The pacifier is a tad bit old (see pics), so my mission for tomorrow is to find her a brand new binky!! What a great excuse to go shopping, don’t ya think?? Anyway, here’s some pics from today:
Here's Magda in her first couple layers of clothes before they brought in her cute sweater outfit for me to put on her! She's so tiny!
And her in her cute little outfit!!!
Arianna is sporting her multi-layered look as well. She was not thrilled with us looking under her jammies! I think she’s saying, “Have you no shame?”.
Magda pushing up on her hands! She can roll over and gets up on her hands and tries to rock back and forth.
What precious smiles!!!!

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.
