New pictures of our beauty!!!!

There's a great website, ladybugsnlove.com, that will call orphanages for adoptive parents and request updated information. We did this 10 days ago and today we got our updated information. Hmmmm... what should I give you 1st, the 4 new pictures or the information???? OK, stop begging, here's the pictures!! Oh yeah, she had her lip repaired!!!


We had no idea she was getting her lip repaired until we got the pictures this morning!! It looks great!! We got answers to 10 questions as well as updated height and weight. She is 26.7 inches tall, weighs 17.6 pounds, has 4 teeth, 2 upper and 2 lower and her feet are only 5 inches long!! She's wearing infant size shoes!! Here's all the new stuff we know about our daughter!!! She hasn't had any illnesses except colds and coughs. She has alot of friends and gets along well with all the other children. Her favorite toys are any that make music. She doesn't like strangers and is afraid of them (bad for us!!). Her personality is described as easy going, lively and gets along well with other children. She sleeps on her back. She crawls and stands by herself and will walk holding your hand. She likes to go outside. The orphanages wish for her when she grows up is that whe will remember and love China when she is grown. We are so thrilled to have this new information and the pictures, it's priceless!! In one of the photos you can see a lady's hands and it looks like the sign for play. We are hopeful they are using sign language with her, Scott and I plan on using sign language with her so this just gives us all a head start. Once again, please leave a comment, we will be adding them all to Laila's book!! Thank you all so much for your love and prayers!!
