Finally!

Here is our baby girl! I can't believe how much she has changed! She is now almost 7 months and only 15 pounds. Much smaller than I thought she would be. They must have shaved her hair too. It was nice to talk to our agency's director this morning and come home to these pictures.
I long so much to bring our growing baby home...2 1/2 weeks and no matter what, she will be in our arms.

Her eyes are beautiful! She is too cute. I am glad they at least sent you updated pictures after their mistake.

Love those eyes! Mari was only 16.7 pounds when I brought her home at 9 months (and she was chunky). Don't fret about the size (hey, the smaller she is, the less tired your arms will be on the way home). They had also shaved Mari's head between my referral pix and gotcha day...so sad but it was nice to start off with soft baby curls and work my way up to her thick head of hair...kind of breaks you in easily! Can't wait for you to go....I'm so excited for you. Those eyes are calling out to you!

LOVE the new pictures - she is just perfect. Micah was 14 lbs. when we got home and was almost 6 mos. so it sounds like she's close to his size. Can't wait until you go and we see pics of the whole family together!!!

She is so cute. The picture looks like she is looking at you just waiting to be picked up and held. I am happy that in a few weeks she will be.

She is such a beautiful little girl. Wow.

Both my girls lost their hair at 4 months (in MP's it could have just been standard baldness) at the hands of the nannies who were honoring the children with a baptismal rite that normally would have occurred at that age had they not been in care.

Or, it could be fungus.

Either way, she is gorgeous (and shiny now too!).

Erica said...

There she is!!! She is BEAUTIFUL! Her petite little self is even more gorgeous in person. Be blessed, this little miss is AMAZING!

Congratulations! (And my Alice is the same age, and weighs about the same, so no worries!) Have a great trip.
