It is 4:30am in Taiwan and my girls are sleeping-yep, my girls!! Janie and Lexie are together. They both fell asleep around 8:00 last night so I went to sleep too..now I am up!! Lexie is amazing. She is beyond adorable...so tiny and so sweet. Janie is a great big sister. She is so interested in Lexie and Lexie is very interested in Janie.
I have sooooo much to tell everyone, but I need more time. I just wanted to at least get a few pictures up.
I will say that Hannah's Hope (the home where Lexie was) is AMAZING. The nannies (special mommies) love the babies so much. They were sooooo excited to see Janie and so happy for the sisters to be together. They were sad to see Lexie go--lots of tears. To those of you that have traveled already-you know what I mean. To those of you waiting to travel, please know that your babies are being soooooo well taken care of and soooooo loved!! I knew it with Janie and I learned it all over again with Lexie. I had a short time to play with your darlings and I did get a few pictures for you...and if you sent things, they were given to the babies yesterday!! I will email each of you privately with more details about your babies (it might be tomorrow though)..we have a busy day ahead of us and my girls are keeping me BUSY!!
Janie: She is still having some sleep issues. It isn't jet lag-she just isn't sleeping much. But when she does finally crash, she crashes hard. But when she is awake, she is soooo happy and extremly wild and crazy!!! She loves Lexie-giving her toys, pacifer, etc and not too jealous. A little but not too much (yet). It is funny though, she wants to do whatever Lexie is doing. When I made Lexie a bottle, Janie wanted one too. When I changed Lexie's diaper, Janie got a diaper and laid down too....so cute!!!!
Lexie: She is an active thing. Loves to crawl around and grab everything in reach. Wants everything that Janie is holding. She is going to give Janie a run.....She is grieving some (which breaks your heart, but is a good thing). She is a much better sleeper than Janie. Janie has been up twice already tonight and cried loudly--Lexie just sleeps right through it.
We are beyond thrilled and have so much more to share...just wanted to give you a quick update. I keep going from crib to crib looking in at my 2 sleeping angels! God has blessed me and my heart is soooooo full! I cannot even describe how amazing this is.
We love you all!
