Anita Day #2

Anita is so beautiful and understand very well what is said to her.  She listens well and does what the people speaking in Bulgarian tell her.  She isn't sure so much of Brent who talks funny.  She is also very much like Julianne in that she will not tolerate people holding her, kissing her, or bothering her unless she approves and lets you know that she wants it.  She is very smart and puts together puzzles, puts things in order of size,  and plays well.  She doesn't really talk, even in Bulgarian. 

Our Skype call at 2:30 am my time, went ok.  She stayed in front of the phone for a short time on Brent's lap.  I was able to sing "Jesus Loves Me" to her and she stayed attentive during that time.  Julianne even tried to help me sing to her sister!  Anita then began to go from toy to toy showing what she could do.  :)

Here are some pictures and videos for your viewing pleasure!
 She is so adorable sucking her thumb!  I just want to hug and kiss her - of course that would be if I'm permitted to do so.  lol

Here is a tiny smile.  I'm betting she may need eye surgery from this picture as well.

Here you can see her places things in order from biggest to smallest.  I don't believe she was asked to do so, but she was just "showing off". 

Here you can see that she is still obsessed with the picture book.  She is getting pretty smart and has figured out how they got inside there!

This next one shows her showing off her "dancing" skills.  She is so adorable!
I can't wait to get this little angel home.  She too is in what seems to be a good place as far as orphanages go.  That makes it easier for certain.  She is in good health as far as what Brent was told at the orphanage.  She loves to be the center of attention and does get to go to school in the mornings.  :)


  1. What an adorable and clever girl! Thanks for sharing the pictures and movies. What a treat to watch! :)

  2. Love that dancing! What a sweetheart she is!

  3. Oh my gosh, Amanda! How can you stand to wait to get her home! She's adorable!!!!!

  4. They are both just darling! I am looking forward to the week your husband meets Paula. I am hoping he can give a message to the director that our daughter is doing well!
