Ace is really happy when we get to go see Archie. She cheers, "We going to see ARCHIE!!!" In the car the whole way to the orphanage. The hard part has been when it is time to leave. She so badly wants him to come with us. When she starts to sense that we are getting ready to go, she starts telling me, "and Archie is coming with us in the car, mom, and staying with us now. Right mommy?" She is super sad when she finds out that is not the case. Fortunately, there is a toy store right next to our hotel with some inexpensive goodies, and she bounces back pretty quickly as soon as we tell her we will take her there and she can pick something out. I know, great parenting, but I want my girl to be happy while we are here!
She has been so awesome on this trip. She has been having a lot of pretend phone conversations on the hotel phone. Here is the one she is having right now as I type:
"Boyfriend, wanna come dance with me later? I be in my room with all my friends. Here my mom wants to tell you hi. 'Mom, say hi my boyfriend' (holding up the phone). Okay boyfriend just call me when you coming, I be ready. I dont want to talk to you right now. Bye." Haha love this girl!
We have decided it would be easiest for her to just do one trip to the orphanage each day, so Joey is on his way back for the afternoon visit and she and I are hanging out.
Now for pictures from this morning....
All four of us
Me and my cuddle bugs!
Dancing in the streets!
Ace loves to help. She pushed this sweet baby boy for a long time.
He loves to copy my faces...
