Her attitude changed quickly and she loves the biker buggy. I found it at the church rummage sale when I went to drop off items we had to donate. It belonged to a friend and fellow adoptive mother. Mike and I have gone out twice already while the boys babysat.*
This picture was taken before all the screaming began. Christiana was great the first time we took her out. She was a little wide-eyed but kept quiet for the ride. The second time, she began crying at the top of the first hill and didn't let up until we brought her home and put her to bed. Not before spreading her sunshine around the neighborhood, however. These were different neighbors than the ones who were treated to her screaming in the stroller last week.
After putting her to bed, Mike and I went out for a longer ride with Amanda. She had a great time and began singing Veggie Tales Lullabies to us. Mike bought her the CD awhile back and I recently taught her how to turn on the CD player. Now we listen to them almost non-stop during the day. They are great songs, lullabies, hymns and cute little songs, and they are easy to sing. Most children's CD are so high I can't sing along. The boys complain, but either they're playing on the CD player or Amanda is singing them so it makes no difference to me.
*Babysitting means they played video games while the little girl(s) slept. They have instructions to go get the little girls in case of an emergency, but other than that they don't really have to do anything with them.
