Today we met with the social worker to do our mandatory 3 month post placement report for the adoption. She basically checks on Ayana's health and to see how she is adjusting. She said that her progress is AWESOME and she seems to be right on track and has bonded to us. She gave us some suggestions and things to look for as she gets older.
Ayana showed off her skills: Walking, blowing kisses, says momma~dadda~ba ba, waves hello and bye, kisses with an open mouth and blows raspberries and spits every where. This kid has talent I tell you. :)
When she is through with the report, we will send it and updated photos to the agency and then they are required to send it to several parties. I swear, as soon as she left, Ayana was walking and got a little too excited and fell on her face on the tile floor. She let out a scream! She cried and cried. Within minutes, her top lip was swollen, poor thing. She cut the inside a little with her new teeth.
She is also cutting three more teeth. Ughh, she hasn't slept through the night in a week from the pain. I also found out the hard way that she is allergic to infant's Motrin/Ibuprofin.
One of the neighbors did give Ayana a new toy though that helped to distract her. It's a floor bouncer! Thanks Debbie! She doesn;t understand how to use it yet. She will not bend her knees when we show her how to bounce. We try to bounce her and she is like a stiff board. lol
So I go to bed tonight feeling so BLESSED! Ayana has done so well.I am also so proud of Savannah and the adjustments that she has made. She is an amazing sister. It is amazing to watch actually. People say how Ayana's life has changed drastically because of us but I say that she has changed our life and has added joy every waking day. Thank you Lord for our little blessing and for another day of joy tomorrow.
