Yesterday, we got a call about 11 that we would leave in an hour and go to the orphanage and get Anya.That hour was VERY long, but once it passed we drove to the orphanage. Each trip takes about twice as long (or more) than it did in September because of the snow. This place is very hilly and there are some streets that are still not cleared, and others that are downhill only. They still have the army out clearing the roads and loading the plowed snow into trucks to be hauled off somewhere.
We went to the pharmacy to pick up her medicines, and stopped by the baby store again, to get diaper rash creme, then we made it to the hotel, just in time to eat dinner and then go to our room.
Anya wanted to walk all over the room, to feel the cold on the window, and to look at the TV. We figure she hasn't had this much freedom in her life, and definitely never has seen a TV. Cameron gets a kick out of having her run into his arms and let him pick her up.
They played together until around 8:30, which is her regular bedtime. She resisted vigorously until she rocked herself to sleep around midnight. She only woke one time at four in the morning and was back out in fifteen minutes. She finally woke up at nine thirty and was ready to eat and play right away.
We won't be doing anything today, but playing and bonding. I hope to Skype with a few people and post more pictures of her soon. The weather is supposed to turn much colder and stay that way, but Cameron got a snow suit the other day, so I'll take him out later on until he gets tired or I freeze solid.
