New Pics of Chianna Jade!

I woke up this morning to the most wonderful present in my inbox - pics of Chianna from the camera we sent in October! I guess I started back on the blog just in time! Whew!

We were so excited to be able to get these pics, the last photos we had were from June!
She is our beautiful little Angel! The pictures of her are so amazing. We are so thankful to have these, they are truly a New Year's blessing!


Wearing the pink flower dress that Daddy picked out!



The LeapFrog that sings the ABC's

I think she likes it!

The box of all the stuff we sent:



Her Nanny is showing her our pictures!


"Hmmm. . . who are these two characters?" I would pay a million dollars to know what she is thinking right there!


There is the pink polka dot blankey we sent!


This is her "Florida Princess" t-shirt!



Long legs, huh?!?

I am so happy that this dress fit her and even looks a little big! Its a 4T, if I remember correctly, and the t-shirt was definitely a small (4-6) and it looks pretty big. So she has long legs, but is still very small!



We are so thankful to her Nannies taking care of her!




Our favorite 2 pics:



Ok, for all the questions about when we travel: we still don't know for sure when that will be, just that IT WILL HAPPEN!

I am hoping that it might be in January, and of course, we will travel whenever and as soon as they say we can, but we are so hoping that we might be able to be in Vietnam for Tet, the Vietnamese New Year at the end of January. If not then, I think definitely before the end of March!

The nanny showing Chianna the photo book was my daughter's nanny! She is such a wonderful woman.
You guys are in our prayers,
