you make me smile

guess what I woke up to today......pictures!  Ann at Red Thread China is ah-mazing!  I ordered Pres a care package and Ann was able to get 5 new pictures & updated measurements before she even sent the package.  Baby girl is growing - she's currently (22 mos old) 33.5" tall & 26 lbs.  Just for a little comparison - Piper is 4 yrs, 3 mos and is 38" tall & 32 lbs.  At 22 mos, Pipes was around 29" tall & 18 lbs. 
Piper's comment "MAMA!!!  Her's wearing a dress!"
stunning, right?!?   
Piper asked "um, does her wive in a toy store?"  Love the look of toal concentration on her sweet little face!
  after a bit of tweaking - so.in.love.
can you believe how much her hair has grown?  insert happy squeal - totally seeing ponys & hair bows in China!
the long road

adoption journey said...

Just curious on how you were able to get updates and send packages so early. Our agency WACAP said that we are expressly forbidden by the Chinese government to contact our children until we receive LOA. Then again, our agency also makes us sign a form promising we won't post photos of our children until the adoption is finalized. Grrr. We did finally receive LOA November 5th (dossier to China July 8, log in July 20), but we haven't sent any packages yet because it still seems like a looong time until we travel!

adoption journey - our agency lets us start sending care packages & post pics after PA. I think it all varies by agency. Congrats on your LOA - hope TA will be coming soon!

What an exciting day for you- she's getting so big. Can't wait to hear the next update.

She sure is adorable!!! Joy's hair was a crew cut at referral. I sent them a letter asking them not to cut it. They did not. I sure hope they don't cut your daughter's hair before you travel.
