So far, Laura has adjusted beautifully. She rarely says anything, probably because she knows we won't understand her :) But she smiles and nods a lot. The only picture I received of her before hosting was her in boy pjs, but that obviously is NOT her at all, because she is loving all things girly and sparkly. Her favorite thing is to go through Lucy's jewelry box and put on everything.
Our First Day:
Up and dressed for the day! Laura likes to get dressed IMMEDIATELY upon waking. I, however, prefer to stay in my pj's half the day :)
Lucy has introduced her to the world of Disney Princesses. Laura put Lucy's Belle dress on while they watched the Princess sing a long.
Laura slept great, and even napped with Lucy for a bit in the afternoon. I think her clock is still off a bit, even though she hasn't acted sleepy at all. There were a few sad and awkward moments the first day, as Laura seems very unfamiliar with playing. She would stand in the middle of the room, unsure of what to do. With some guidance and leading though, she has improved a lot in just two days and has even begun to pull toys out on her own and play with them. (Seems like such a strange thing to say, as most children can completely destroy a playroom in 2 minutes flat)
We heard her laugh for the first time today :)
The finished products. Laura's on the right. Hmm...looks like we need to work on Lucy's painting skills.
She counted to six today in English!
Laura is a very sweet girl and seems to be content and grateful for everything. She's a pretty good eater so far too, but especially loves fruit. At first she followed Lucy around like a shadow, but she has been a little more independent today and I think understands that she doesn't HAVE to do whatever Lucy is doing.
She is handling visitors VERY well, so please feel free to stop by if you want to meet her :)
Looking forward to learning more about this sweet girl!
