Sometimes Adjoa gets on a kick where she's sooooo... African. I don't know of any other way to describe it - she's a sass, for sure.

It makes me smile. It makes me want to grab her and give her a big kiss. It makes me miss Ghana. It makes me wish I had my camera.

I hope she never loses it.

Luckily, yesterday my camera was actually handy when she started getting into it. I caught the tail end.

Hope you enjoy! I'll try to get her again sometime when she's really getting into it.

No wonder you're in love with her!!!
My son (home from Vietnam) was sitting on my lap and said, "Don't you know I can't understand her?"
She is precious.
When one of my Alia (home from Liberia), dances, it is so cute because she definately has an African bootie style!

Too cute! Bright is home almost 2 years now, and still hasn't lost his Ghanaian sass. I think (hope) it's permanent!

I hope it's permanent too! Of course, she's not 15 yet, so that might change! lol.

Shonni -
Tell your son I don't understand most of it either! lol

I LOVE the booty dances! Too cute!

Oh. My.

Adjoa is hilarious! I love her sass. I caught part of her talking about the dinner, but the rest I was lost. It seems VERY important though.

It's no wonder you want to hug her!

So African! Where did her new American accent go? lol Priceless moment captured!

Again, again, again. That's all my girls can say right now.

Now that's too funny!

I caught Foo Foo in the whole thing and then she has a scratch. Funny! She reminds me of Junior. They must have spent a lot of time together, because that's how he talks as well. The giant hand motions take me right back. She has a lot of words for not even being three! Wow!

She is such a sweetheart! I was watching this video with my 5- and 3-year-old niece and nephew and they giggled and kept on asking to see more of her! She is just "adorable" as the 3-year-old put it!
