Tonight Natalia and I went with a family I met through my blog to Mir Dyetstva. They just arrived in Moscow from Murmansk with their adorable almost-four-year-old daughter, Aeniah Natasha.
She is absolutely precious. Her eyes actually sparkle and her smile is equally impish and charming. This little firecracker will have NO trouble keeping up with her four older siblings... and she's certainly going to keep her mom and dad on their toes!
It was fun to listen to her and my Natalia as they chatted some--mostly in our car. I hope it wasn't my child who taught her one of her few new English words. She started saying "Daddy" today... And then added "poop"...!!! She clearly knew what she was saying and was quite proud. Here she is saying, "Hi!"
I enjoyed meeting Nathan and Brandy. They're really nice people and it'll be fun following their adventures as they return home!
