Our little pumpkin has grown

We received an email from our agency this morning with updated measurements from this month. According to the measurements sent she is 17.6 pounds and 26.7 inches. So she is a pretty good sized baby even on the American growth charts. I read somewhere that they weight the babies with their clothes on so the weight may not be accurate. All of those layers must weigh a couple pounds. But she seems to be health so we are very happy.

We also got some translated info from her referral. Lots of great info about her day to day schedule. It also mentioned that the nannies call her baby Huhu....too cute. It is such a treasure to have this information, almost like reliving referral day all over again, only Jen couldn't miss the call this time...

I am not sure what to call this phenomenon but every time we look at her picture she just seems to get cuter and cuter. I am not sure how this is possible but it is really happening. And she is pretty damn cute as it is.

Oh, and thanks to Kevin and Kimberly for the comments about care packages getting safely to Yifeng. Nice to know that there is a good chance that Grace will get what we sent her.

I know the name of that phenomemon It's called LOVE! You know you already love her so much but every time you look at her you fall deeper and deeper! And when you see her in person and she is placed in your arms your heart will just explode!!

Oh, she's definitely cute, but wait till you see her smile! You think you are in love now......it will be one of the happiest moments of your lives! I haven't adopted (yet), but I still remember the moment that both of my kids smiled at me for the first time. I fell in love all over again. So, if you think she's cute now, just wait till she starts smiling and laughing!!!

Those cheeks are so sweet I can see how she would get cuter and cuter. It's amazing how you can fall in love with a picture isn't it?
