Lately, my favorite activity is to sneak over to the foster home for a few minutes every morning and every afternoon and snuggle with this sweetheart. Cora has the greatest belly laugh. And she loves to play peek-a-boo. And she mimicks anything — including clicking her tongue, waving bye-bye, kissing, and blowing her cheeks up as big as she can. I think she’s sort of a thrill-seeker, because she loves anything that involves bouncing or tossing her in the air. She seems to like that sinking feeling in her stomach. I see roller coasters in her future.
Really, I’d be happy to spend a whole day just with her instead of doing any office work. And if I weren’t getting over a lingering cold, I’d be over there right now instead of staring at her cute little face in a picture.
Officially, she’s a year old, but we think she might be a bit older since she has a mouthful of teeth. She weighs about 15 pounds, so she’s a petite little gal. She needs heart surgery, but she’s constantly fighting congestion in her lungs. They won’t do her surgery until her lungs are clear, but it’s hard to get her lungs clear with a bad heart. A vicious cycle…
I know at least one of my blog friends is also partial to this doll, so I just thought I’d share this beautiful picture with you all. I didn’t take it, but I certainly don’t mind looking at it! 🙂
