Week 2 Day 2

Ok, so lots has happened since the last time I posted.

Bonnie left us, however last I heard she was "trapped" in Paris because MSP airport was closed.

Steve and I are battling colds. I have chai te rouge down pat. This means tea please.

Enough about us, you want to hear about the clinic.

Ion came back from Barlad Children's Hospital late last week and yesterday had a new hair cut, a buzz cut. He had lice. The aides have been checking all the other kids, but nothing has turned up so far. When I think about it, my head starts to itch. :)

Daria is getting better and better at walking. She can walk for quite a ways, but still needs help getting up or needs to crawl to something to pull herself up.

I have been chewing gum the past few days and the toddlers love to watch me try and blow bubbles, especially Roxanna, Andreea and Alina. You know how Gaby likes to feel different textures on her bottom lip? When she sees I have gum, she tries to touch that too with her bottom lip.

I met Cristi briefly last week, but he has been in his room battling a cold.

Alex continues to be a finicky eater, while the twins can't seem to get enough yogurt! They get mad at you when they have eaten it all. Daria tries to eat it, but can't quite seem to get the hang of it. I'm not sure if this is because of her cleft palate or if she just needs more practice.

Celine continues to be a language sponge. You can hear her practicing Romanian words with the aides and English with the volunteers.

I've been learning a few things about the aides too, how many kids they have and how old they are...etc...

That's all for now, I'm late to get back to clinic after naps.
