100% Pure Love





We had another great day today. Last night we started Janie on some Gerber Baby Cereal mixed with her formula and she really seems to love it. It helped her sleep so well. She is doing so great! She is the happiest most content little one. I'm told she used to have a big time temper and was pretty difficult at first. You would never know it now....the nannies at the birth home did a great job with her. She is such a joy. 

I love it when she wakes up! She coos a little, stretches a little, and then gets this HUGE GRIN across her face and then is ready to play!!

She loves to Go, Go, Go. We love walking around Taipei and she loves it too! We put her in our carrier (facing out) and she watches EVERYTHING. She is also a big hit with everyone in Taiwan. Just about everyone looks at her (and us). I think we are an unusual sight in Taiwan....and everyone smiles when they see her. Most people in the stores immediately come over and want to play with her. And of course, she loves every second of it!! She just smiles and kicks those legs!! 

She is such a joy! She loves to ride in taxis too. She gets a little bored if the light stays red too long! She wants to go!!! She wants to experience everything.

Check out Janie with the sprite bottle. It shows exactly how small she is! But full of spunk and fiesty!

Prayer request:
We have our AIT appointment tomorrow morning (Friday) at 9:00am. That is 9:00pm Thursday night Georgia time. We have to turn in all our paperwork to the US officials for them to review and issue Janie's visa so we can bring her home to the states! I know all will go well, but I have heard that sometimes they need extra paperwork or they find issues they want resolved. Each case is different. Please pray with me that all goes well with the review and we don't experience any delays. I am ready to bring this beautiful baby home for all of you to meet!

I'm so glad all is going well. All our prayers and thoughts are with you. I can't wait to see her in a Bulldog cap. It'll be a lot better than a bow. :) Love to All.

She is too cute for words. I am so glad the three of you are having so much fun. We all knew she'd be an angel. Praying for all to go well for the last step. God is good and will see you through 'till the end. Gosh, what a cutie she is!!!! Congratulations!

Sending good thoughts your way, as it almost 9:00. I'm sure all will go well and you will be bringing your beautiful baby girl home soon.

On another note, are those gray hairs I see in Grannie Patti's hair? Just kidding.

Tonya, your descriptions of things are wonderful - hope you will record this all for Janie to enjoy when she is older. What a happy child she is...you and she have both been blessed. Hurry home!

Get used to all that attention. Babies make you all kinds of new friends in public!
