We had the most amazing time with Aly today! During our morning visit we got to play in the snow, look at books together, and play ball. She loved playing with the ball and would giggle and giggle. There is a video posted down at the bottom. In the afternoon we had our one-on-one time, but we were also able to see her with her groupa. She wanted to watch a video all the children were watching (the caretaker said it was her favorite - it had music!), and play in the ball pit.
Towards the end of the day the other children were coming up to us for attention. It became apparent that while they get taken care of really well by their caretakers, they are not a Mama and Papa. It was truly heartbreaking.
I know, I know, you want pictures... here you go!
Aly and Mama in the snow!
Every time I would take a picture of Aly (and I took a lot!) I would show her the picture on the back of the camera. She started to make silly faces for the camera.
Playing in the snow with Papa! This is something we haven't done in many, many years.
Aly and Papa! Please excuse the hat hair, it's freezing here!
Reading with Papa!
And finally, the cutest thing I have ever seen!
Here is some video of little Miss Giggles playing ball with Mama.
Aly is such a little joy and I am glad we decided to go on this amazing adventure!
