Leeza Grace was in a sunny mood this Sunday, the last Sunday in August. She was dressed rather warmly, in a fleece top, tights, then a fleece onesie with feets! It was warm out today...I wore my denim shorts and green tank top with bling. I took a couple pictures, and then changed her into her new outfit I found at the baby store. She LOOKED precious indeed, and I think she liked it!! She even kept the cute lil headband on. It must be all the forced "chepchick" (Russian word for the cute bonnets they all have on )wearing that the caregivers so lovingly enforce. She had fun playing, and dancing. We tried our best to get video of her chatting and dancing, but we were often not quick enough with the camera. I love how they "cease and desist" doing something incredibly adorable right when you grab the camera! She remembered how to clap (what rentention!) AND she even said...TURN THE MUSIC UP..I can't hear it Mommmy! Seriously, she did....I got it on video..
She had fun with the stacking cups and just playing and dancing. She is so fun! She didn't even fall asleep on our walk today, but she yawned a lot. She really did look precious in her new outfit. I have to say....girl clothes are really fun!! She was really sweet and thanked me for her new outfit. She asked if they had cute clothes in Florida and I was telling her ALL about Target, and Children's place and how much fun SALES are! She HAS all kinds of questions about Florida. I told her it was warm pretty much all the time, except sometimes in winter it's in the 40's, and we have to wear long sleeves when we run. I assured he she has cute tights to wear,but MOSTLY, she can go barefoot because her feet are so cute. She likes her feet, and she is flexible. She asked if we can find a Mommy and me yoga class. Once again, 3 hours flies by way faster than it should, and it was time for cookies, milk, and nap. I changed Leeza back in her tight fleece blue top and her tights and socks, but left off the fleece onesie. I have given the baby house all her other clothes, but I wanted to keep this one for when we get to leave the baby house. She was soooooooooooooo happy to be in just her diaper. I was letting her laugh and giggle but Sean was a NERVOUS WRECK. He kept saying 'MOM GET HER DRESSED! THE CAREGIVERS ARE GOING TO COME IN AND SAY CUSHAT AND SPOT (eat and sleep) AND THEY WILL SEE HER IN JUST HER DIAPER AND WE WILL GET IN BIG TROUBLE!" It was really funny! Of course, THAT just made me take my time even more. She was grabbing her tummy and her toes like OH, WHAT A FEELING! IT'S BELIEVING..I CAN HAVE IT ALL..I'M DANCING FOR MY LIFE! I said, WOW LEEZA you are just like Jennifer Beels in FlashDance. I wanted a bite, but Leeza won't share.
It was Tatiana's day off today,so Eugene dropped us of at the baby house and picked us up at 2:45. We went to lunch at the Car Wash, with my favorite chicken in a pita with cabbage and tomatoes and what tastes like ranch dressing, with a vanilla milkshake to drink. YUM!
After Eugene dropped us of, Sean and ventured to the market. It is literally a 3 minute walk (if that) from our apartment. The market is like the hugest flea market you've ever seen....with groceries to clothes to furniture..everything you need and don't need. In fact, they even SELL HAMSTERS! Sean tried his best to get me to buy him a Kostanai hamster, but it didn't work. I don't like rodents, in Kazakhstan or in Florida. He even created a scenario that the hamster was abused and taken away from his parents and needed a home...THEN would I get him one that needed a family? NO!
We got some fun stuff at the market. Sean got a cool silver chain and cross, and we picked out a couple gifts for friends too. I found Leeza some adorable pajames for only 700 tenge (less than 6 bucks) and a pink fleece outfit for 1000 tenge (8 bucks)
I saw some ADORABLE shoes for 1000 tenge, and she kept dropping the price, but they looked big for Leeza. I need to measure her foot to see what size she wears. We had fun and got such great deals.
I love spending Tenge..it feels like Monopoly money..speaking of which...HONEY-PLEASE BRING MORE CASH!!!
I will close with a blurry video of Leeza dancing to her favorite song choice of today...HEY BEBE! I read that sweet Angela and Scott play classical music for their sweet Aila...and, um, we play LO and AY Bebe. Poor Leeza...
