One Week Later

One week later we have made so much progress...
this precious angel with no family on SJ Day
has come to LOVE McDonald's chicken nuggets and ice cream
plus Pizza Hut pan pizza.
She has begun to copy what her sister does
and is learning to play right along side her.
Gets down when we are in the room to play
with all the toys we brought.
She knows to say Hello when she picks up the phone.
She loves to draw on her magna doodle
and when she cleans it she says, "All gone".
She understands a lot of what we say
and talks to us in Chinese all the time.
She is beginning to play with her Baba
and covers her mouth when she laughs out loud.
So cute!
She wraps her arms around my neck when I hold her
and hugs me oh so tight.
She cups my face with her sweet hands
and kisses me right on the lips.
When I lay down with her at nap and night,
she puts her face right at my face and breathes my breaths.
She is completely full of love and personality.
We are so in love with her
and thank God He allowed us to be her family!!!


  1. Wow! What an amazing week! Congratulations on your sweet girl! She is a doll!

  2. P.S. I love, love, love their matching clothes! It makes me want two girls!!

  3. I just can't tell you how much you make my day by all the wonderful pics and postings - so incredibly happy for all of you! Love the hat pic! Tell EK that I think she's an incredible big sister! China looks like an amazing place, but then again- any place you get your baby girl at is incredible!

  4. It's amazing the difference a week makes! The picture of SJ covering her laugh brought tears to my eyes. It's just so wonderful to see that little girl soaking up the warmth & love of her new family. Scott's smile in the picture is priceless, too.

  5. I love that uncontrollable laugh - I can almost hear it!!!

    What a difference even a week can make :)

  6. amazing the change in just a week - I love the photo with her hand over her mouth!! sweetness!
