Today is Halloween! Upon arrival to the infirmary ... the caretaker motions for me to follow her and she leads me upstairs only for me to find that Noah has GRADUATED!! He is out of isolation and has joined the other children! Yippeeeeee!
My good friend, Nancy Ferrell, sent some Happy Halloween surprises to me through Crystal. I got a card, bottles of wine, two Halloween candles, and two bags of caramel, chocolate nut, popcorn! Well ... I decided to put a white ribbon around one bag of this "crunch" today and give it to the caretakers. They were so surprised when I did and soooooooo appreciative! Then, they put a "My First Halloween" outfit on Noah that I had brought for him for this special day!
For lunch, we went to a chinese restaurant that was pretty good and then Larissa took us to a small bookstore where I bought a DVD on Semey, Kazakhstan.
At afternoon bonding, we started off by feeding the children their SAME EXACT LUNCH THEY GET EVERY DAY! In the new area, I had to sit my big rear end on a tiny chair (for a two year old!) to feed Noah. Noah was kind of cranky ... I'm sure it's the teething thing!
A big joke in the bonding room is waiting to see who gets "slimed" next! All three babies are teething ... and every time we bond, they have just finished eating. So, you can only imagine all the drool and spit up! I never knew that baby spit up smells just like vomit! It is sooooo gross wearing clothes all day that smell like baby vomit. Across the bonding room, you'll hear ... "AAAAAGH!" and we all know who got it. Then, we'll hear, "GROOOOOOOOOOSS!" Yep ... happened again! Ha! This goes on and on!
A shout out to my twin brother, Wayne ... here is Noah in his first ride in the Baby Bjorn baby carrier that you gave me! "We" are going to practice with it some before we make the "big trip" home! Thanks, Wayne! We love it!
