This morning when we arrived at Mina's groupa they tried telling us something in Ukrainian and of course we did not have a clue or understand so we just stood and waited. A few minutes later they came out with a little chair from the groupa for Myla and played with her for a couple minutes and then went back in the room. So we just hung out in the front room area and waited. About 10 minutes later Svetlana the head nurse came walking down the hallway with Mina and handed her to us. Not sure where she was or what she was doing but she was now with us and ready to play. We went down to the ball pit area per Myla's request. I think that is her absolute favorite place in the orphanage.
Today has been an EXCITING day of accomplishments for Mina. She has been doing so awesome and has progressed so quickly in such a short period of time. Today she held her own bottle to drink out of it for a min, rolled over several times, and sat up in the stroller for a good long period of time. We are so proud and excited for all the changes we see in her. It's amazing what a little attention and Love can do for a child! Just 2 weeks ago she couldn't do any of these things.
