Day 2 Home: My All American Girl

Today was a pretty good day.  Ramya LOVED going on a bike ride and also really loved the wagon ride we went on later in the day.  I'm still holding her quite a bit and she still sits on my lap to eat (which is ok with me), but she is also getting down to play next to me quite a bit.  She loves playing in the water and loves the doll you can give water too and it pees.  She likes to give it a bottle and a "foon" (spoon).  She knows how to diaper and swaddle a baby, so I am wondering if they had her help with the babies in the orphanage.  In the room next to her, there were 4 very small infants, under 10 weeks old I believe.  In the room across there were older babies.  She doesn't like when anyone is crying and tries to make them happy.

I got called "momma" once today.  I had Madi on the potty and she really wanted to be held.  It was very sweet!  It will be nice to hear it a little more as the days go on.  Oh, and crushing up her medicine and putting it in pudding worked well, so her medicine was taken today... woooo hoooo!  She also didn't fight me on using the potty today, which was nice.  Baby steps!

I was told to try and feed her food she is familiar with, but she doesn't really want anything to do with it.  I think she's just tired of eating the same old thing all the time.  She wants to eat what we eat, which actually works out pretty nice.  Today she loved pancakes with almond butter and syrup.  She also loves bananas and has eaten about 4 today.  She still loves eggs but is eating quite a few other things too.

Here is a picture of Ramya and Madi on our bike ride:

 
 
Oh, and she ended up being just fine in the car seat.  She enjoys riding in the car and wasn't too upset with having to be in a seat, so I am very thankful for that!
