Breaking News UPDATE!!!!

She has changed a lot in 6 months! She is so sweet!! When we seen the new update it was just like the first day we seen her all over. We are head over heals and can hardly fathom that she will be in our arms in only 19 more sleeps!!!

We were fortunate enough to get an update from our agency a few days ago! They didn't tell us much but here is what we now know. She is 91 cm or 2ft 11 1/2 inches. She weighs 15 kg or 33 lbs so she gained 5 lbs since February. Head 49cm and chest 53cm so she is a bit of a little thing...funny though she looked so much chubbier in her first set of referral pics....then again they had her wrapped in a few sweaters. Her feet we guessed were a size 8 gauging by other peoples children but they are only 14 cm making her a whopping size 6! Tiny pooties! LOL! We might have a ballerina on our hands!

It's nice to see they are letting her hair grow. I'll be able to take bows with me for sure....and yes I will try my darnedest to put pokie tails in!

I was over at Dara's house and her daughter Paxton was showing me how Google Earth Live works. We put in the address for Sugar's orphanage and I could see the roof of the building!!! Talk about cool! I saved a picture of it but I'll not add it.

Still puttering around getting odds and ends finished around the house. Things are shaping up wonderfully. It still just all seems so unreal....I know it's only 19 more sleeps away but it seems so long!!! Maybe a week from going it will hit home. One thing I must say sure was nice to get this update.....we just needed to see her face and know all was well....and it is.

Well look at her, all smart riding her tricycle!! Deb, she is just a darling. And here's a tip, it always feels unreal in the sense that day after day you will look at her and wonder how you got so lucky!! Still today, I cannot believe I've been to China twice and have these two precious children. Enjoy every moment leading up to Sept. 12.

She is close in size to Sophia. Sophia weighs 35 pounds right now. She is between a 3 and a 4. She can wear both.
Jazmyn is just beautiful! I'll be sending you some hair bows :)

She is tiny! I would guess closer to a size three than a four. Buy lots of shoes in China. They are beautiful and great prices. Clothes apart from Silk dresses etc are not always great finds but boots and shoes are something you can stock up on.
She is truly adorable. I can't wait to follow your trip and see her finally in your arms.

Deb, she is so sweet looking and still has those cheeks! What a dolly. I'm glad you got an update on her size.
I want one on Evan so bad. Our daughter is buying clothes and I'm afraid that he won't be able to wear any of them. ha
Since we don't have one thing for a boy we are excited to get going on it.

Can't wait for your 19 days to be up and you on your way to your girl!
