Mayan dresses....


We are putting together a picture album for Anaya's birth mom. One of the things she requested from us was a picture of her in a traditional dress, as that is how she dresses. In fact when we were there we bought her the one she is wearing in the photo above, the lady that sold it to us said that this skirt is the one they wear in her birth moms village. It does look similar to hers and I know that they are village specific, but I am not 100% sure that is accurate! My friend Tonia got her the other one, which is much cuter! (I took her bows out, to be more authentic!) She was dancing all over ~ She knows she is cute!! The skirt (see picture below) is HUGE they wrap it around several times and cinch it with a belt, as she was dancing around her skirt started falling off, there must be some sort of technique I am not aware of because we saw lots of little girls wearing these and running all over the place smiling just as big as Anaya is in these pictures ~ and they weren't loosing their skirts!!!

Priceless! Love the first photo. I cant believe how long her hair is. Looking forward to hopefully getting together soon. Bella's immunity count is going up! Susie
