She is unbelievably fat and crawling all over the place now. She never stops moving, even in her sleep. When her shirt is off after bathing, she loves to pat her HUGE belly and laugh. It's pretty precious, if I do say so myself.
I am heading to Lusaka tomorrow to get some routine blood work done and do some shopping for the Haven. Ordinarily I don't love trips to Lusaka, but I am SO EXCITED to be going this time because we are going to see Les Mis!!! I just finished reading the book, and I didn't think I would get to see the movie in a theatre. So I'm just beyond thrilled for a night away and to see a movie I've heard so many great things about. I hope you all have a great Monday!
