It seems like ages since Milana had a turn here. So today's the day.
Milana has made some huge strides in the past 6 months. She continues to be a happy little girl but has really blossomed socially. Where she used to cling to my leg (like a velcro kid), she now is the belle of the ball. Whenever she sees someone she knows or even a new person when we're nearby - her HI and BYE cannot be missed. She lights up like a lightbulb, is loud and in your face and so funny.
At school - she seems to be the center of attention. Everyone is crazy about her. She will not be ignored. In Sunday school she's been known to jump in a few laps without notice and almost always a male lap. (She definately likes the men - oh boy....we're in trouble. Can you say "flirt"?)
And very musical. She comes home from school humming Strauss waltzes (I'm not kidding). In fact - she's always singing or babbling. She has her own language and seems to have very little use for English or French but for a few words. Yet there is constant communication.
At the end of the service at church when I'm turning off my keyboard and packing up, Milana jumps up on the drum seat (and sometimes the drummers lap if he's still there) and starts drumming. And she's got rhythm. I have to bring my video camera and capture it - she's really something else.
(It's black and white Wednesday - check out some great photography.)
Happy Wednesday !
