First full visit

See, she does have hair, quite a bit actually!



Today has been a much better day. We found a pizza place close to our apartment, and tomorrow we will wander a little farther and see if we can find the Mcdonalds we saw on the drive in! We go to the orphanage every day at 1 to see the baby. The orphanage staff is very nice, and they take great care of the kids. Its clean and bright and lots of toys around. I haven't seen any other children. They pretty much bring her to us and then we go to a playroom. There are a couple things I want to get checked out quick. She is very spitty, so she needs to be checked for reflux. I could tell from my picture that I had that she has a very flat nasal bridge. Well in real life, its nonexistent, and she sounds like a bulldog when she breathes. I'm sure some airway issues and sleep apnea exist with our angel girl. But she sits, almost by herself. And she can get up on all 4's. Look at her go!

  1. Beautiful, Lacey. And she's such a lucky girl to be able to come home to such a loving family and full medical attention.

  6. This is your girl no doubt about that, she looks like you and definitely like Jax. She is soooo cute, I love the pictures, with her little pink suit with hood and all!!! How cold is it there? I am happy things are settling down, and you are getting to see your girl everyday. She is going to be one lucky spoilt little girl once she gets home, which I hope is really soon!

  7. She's a cutie,Lacey! Gorgeous blue eyes. I'm sorry we missed you in Kiev. We just got our referral this afternoon and b/c it's late friday we don't head out to our region until Monday. The Lorenzs are here with us too and leave Monday. Maybe on the return, we can run into each other. The Baumanns (kim)

  12. I just want to hug her. This must be so surreal to you. You've waited so long and now you're seeing her and able to touch her and know she does indeed actually exist. I can't imagine the overwhelming array of feelings you must be experiencing. I'm thinking of you everyday. Lots of LOVE!

  25. Oh man...I was dying the last two days as I was with Emma at Disneyland (we stayed at the Grand Californian) and I didn't have any computer access and I just knew that these pictures were sitting here waiting for me to look at them. My heart is melting!!! She is beautiful. I love the one of her on all 4's and of course the one with Ray, his baby girl, and she is smiling. Hurry home please!! And by the way, 2 days in a row at Disneyland was torture, I don't know you guys do it!!
