Tea Party Anyone?

I was quite surprised the other day to walk into Milana's bedroom and find this... Her sisters got the little chairs set up for the baby dolls and put them up to the table and then Milana just took over. She loves playing with the little McDonald's playset and she enjoyed serving her baby dolls food even more. (Which is very surprising given her food issues - yes initially she did try to eat the plastic food).
I can't even begin to tell you how much fun Milana had doing this. She was very upset when I tried to tell her it was bedtime. We actually found an icecream sundae in her bed the following morning :) I guess she felt that her doll might need a midnight snack!

This really goes to show how far this little girl has come since she came home 6 months ago. When we first brought her home Milana had little interest in toys and dolls. The only thing she enjoyed doing was talking on her toy cell phone. (She always saw her caretakers walking around talking on the phone so this was all she knew about pretend play).

I have to say that Milana is quite lucky to have such amazing big sisters who play with her all the time! I'm sure they are a big part of why she has developed such amazing play skills.

And of course we are lucky to have her in our family! She is an amazing little girl. Isn't she just adorable?
