Malika says everyday "only 3 more days and we can bring Kaylee home", I don't know why she is stuck on the 3 days, but it is too cute. I think she is very anxious to have her home as her sister. We tried out the bottle this morning to see if she could drink out of it (she can) and Malika was so excited to be able to hold her and give her the bottle.
I'm afraid Justus isn't going to be quite so excited to take her home. He is so happy to go to the orphanage to see her, he runs straight to her class and says "Kay-ee, Kay-ee", but I think he is also relieved to take her back. We tried so hard to get a cute picture of them together this morning, but don't be fooled, even though Justus is smiling, he doesn't want to sit next to Kaylee, and just before the picture, he was hitting her. He is usually so sweet, except when it comes to Kaylee. I think he is realizing that he will have to share me. Poor little guy. I think we are all going to have a hard time for a little while after bringing her home.
I think we are making good progress with Kaylee. She has started to come to me when we are playing on the ground (yes, we are breaking the rules), and she wants to give me hugs. This morning, when I handed her back to a nanny, she even tried to come back to me. I am encouraged that she is bonding sooner than I expected.
Now, if only she would stop screaming. I don't know if it is a DS thing or an orphanage thing, but Kaylee screams. Not everytime we have her, but more often than not. I was trying to figure out why, but my conclusion is that either she wants something, is tired, overstimulated, doesn't like something, wants to do something different or just wants my attention. So, yeah, my conclusion isn't much of a conclusion. One day, I thought we would try to break it and I said "no scream" and tapped her mouth, so she understood what I meant, after like the 30th time, I tired of it and decided we would work on this later. I even tried screaming myself, and then say " no scream", but that didn't work either. Oh yeah, and when she does scream, sometimes it's as often as every 5 seconds. I hope it is something she will stop soon on her own, otherwise we wont be going many places. At least not anywhere she has to be quiet.
