Ethiopia day 4

Today we decided that it was time for Stella to join us and stay with us. When picking her up from the orphanage she is usually lethargic, i think that's her way of coping, today she got out of that state really quickly as we picked her up and then went back to the guest house. She loves being with daddy. He's so good at making her smile. He was sure to make the same noise each time he sees her so she will recognize him-it's totally working. Right now it's hard as we are staying at the guest house but then having to go back and forth to the hotel for lunch and dinner. It seems we are always on the move. Stella is doing great and seems to be enjoying her new mommy and daddy. She is eating and drinking really well. When it's time for nap or bed she really does best if you just lay her down. We put her to bed around 8 and she slept until10:30 and wanted a bottle. She woke up again a couple of times. If she were in her own room she would be fine but since we are all together i try to get her up before she gates to loud. At 5:45 she had her first huge blow out!!! It was all up her back, needless to say she was up for a while after that but finally went back to sleep. I of course did not go back to sleep. i think we finally woke her up around 8:30 so we could get the morning started.
