Rollercoaster days

Here is one little girl who hates having a bath, well maybe when she gets home she can play with her sisters and discover how fun it truly can be, and she will want to be in there when she finds how hot it can get in Arizona, believe me! She got a lotion massage afterwards and loved it. All clean and ready for bed now, and happy as a lark.
See how tiny she is? The TV is small, about a 19". I wish my waist was smaller like hers though.

Just a cute smile, she had decided to be happy again, but I had to make her eat all of her dinner, I found that if I held her feet while she is in the highchair, she feels more secure and eats better.

Sweet little face, she is all over the place when I try to take her picture, I was meowing and barking to get her to smile. She thought I was just too silly.

Pretty in pink!

Look, no hands. She is trying to stand up, but can't stay up
very long, small steps, she will get there.
She is definitely hyper mobile, no big surprise there, check out her elbows
bending the other way. She looks so pretty here too, don't you think?
Got a call form our agency tonight, they were just checking in with us. It was good to hear their voices, gave me some ideas about a few things, and I am grateful for that.
Tomorrow at 9:00 we go to the passport office to get Amanda's passport, from there we will go to the doctors office to get her immunizations, though I plan on calling the embassy about a waiver, I am worried about her getting three immunizations at her size and right before we travel. I would prefer her see our cardiologist and have a thorough exam by the specialist first.
After the doctors office we are going to the American Embassy to get her visa paperwork started. We should be able to get her IR-3 Visa on Thursday which means we should be able to go home after that, except our tickets are for the 10Th.
We will decide after tomorrow what to do about the tickets. Sounds like we have a busy day though. Better bring some yogurt and fruit for little miss Amanda. I will take an energy bar for me.

Good idea on the immunizations. I'd want a waiver too. So good to see her happy again. :)

Looks like Amanda will need the help of her sisters to see how much fun playing in the water can be. I cant wait to see all of the changes in her in the months to come. Wouldnt it be wonderful if you could change your tickets and be home a few days earlier. I will pray for that. Sounds like you have a very busy day ahead for both of you. Try to eat something maybe a nice sweet for both of you. A treat for such a busy day.
We would not be your friends if we did not worry about you and hope for good days.

She sure is a precious thing.
I am glad you figured out some tricks to make things work out better.

Hope all that things go better tomorrow and that you are able to get all the legal things done.

Take care dear angelsis.
Give that Amanda a hug and kiss.
