We called Taiwan last night to check on Rylyn. Skype is only 2.2 cents a minute to call so we signed up for that. ; ) We got Rylyn's January update from the orphanage. They told us that Rylyn is doing much better playing by herself. She can sit in a Bumbo, facing the toy box, and play with the toys for quite a while. She also has her 4th tooth coming in! Most babies don't have teeth at all until a little later on. I can't believe she will already be 6 months old this month! We were told that some colds have been going through the house again and Rylyn has a bit of a runny nose. (which may be partially due to teething) So she, like others, are on medicine and they're all improving. We heard it has been cold this week and the babies all have extra layers of clothes and blankets on.
We were told that Rylyn is a very smily baby and she loves to squeal this high pitch squeal and break out into a huge smile when you talk to her. We are waiting for the home study translation paperwork to get done and are praying that it goes quickly.
