I think Olesya knows that we will be leaving soon. She didn't feel much like playing on the floor today, she just wanted to be held and get lots of snuggles. We didn't mind giving them to her. She is chewing on her fingers and her rattle a lot. I bet by the time we come back in January, she will have at least one tooth.
We made our last trip to Gros today. We needed just a few things to get us through our last couple of days in Taraz. We also went to the photo stores to print out pictures to submit to the court with our other documents. These pictures will prove that we were actually here on the days we were supposed to, bonding with Olesya. For those of you reading this who will be adopting, make sure you know how to have the date printed on your pictures. It is just as easy here as in the states, to print pictures from a digital memory card. It is actually a little bit faster too.
An interesting side note. Apparently on Sunday night there was an earthquake in the mountains between Afghanistan and India. Even though it was in the middle of the night, it could be felt here. I think that was why everyone at the baby house was cranky on Monday - it probably woke them all up. When it woke me up, it felt like someone was shaking the bed. Joe (being from southern California), slept through the whole thing. There are so many new and exciting things happening to us on this trip!
