Interview gone wrong

Ok, here's the first take on the interview with Angela. I was interrupted by a phone call, and Angela took full advantage of the opportunity to have the camera to herself! I love her facial expressions when she's trying to think of something to talk about. What is even more funny, is Angela NEVER has trouble thinking of something to talk about, there is ALWAYS noise coming out of her. LOL Apparently the camera tones her down a bit.

Some context: She talks about the light she broke when she threw a penny. (lovely) She talks about making a zebra cake for Zurri (one of the dogs). I have no idea where that came from. Then again, I have no idea where most of her stuff comes from. She talks to a couple invisible friends about them making stuff too. Then she talks about medicine for her armpit. When I first watched this I was waiting for her to go more in-depth about her psoriasis and where else she has it! You never know with her. Thankfully she remembered our "some things are private" conversations. LOL

The interesting part of this video, is if you watch closely you can see her turn her head to the side quite a bit. When she's not in front of the camera she does it really hard. We used to think it was just a bad habit, but we found out last week she does it to clear her airway, as her esophagus is still full from the last meal she had, and that food won't get pushed out of the way until she eats the next meal. Also, you can see her working hard to swallow.

I can't get the sound to work. I will try it later though. I know it's my computer. It does odd things!

She looks cute though!

She's so beautiful. I am happy to see a video of an older child with DS. We are in the process of adopting a child from Eastern Europe with DS
