March 3, 2008 She's ours!!

We have our baby girl! The ceremony was quick and painless. Dylan was anxious to get out of the building, but he was a really good boy. Leaving the orphanage was really sad. One of the nannies took her from me and started crying, which made me cry. I could tell she was really loved, just like Dylan was when he was there. We can't wait to bring her home. She's so sweet and is always smiling and laughing. She really laughs at her daddy. She can hold onto the edge of the table and stand. She can also roll really fast. She has some pretty nasty scratches on her face where she scratched herself because of the scabies. The first thing we did was clip her nails. The next thing we'll do is give her a bath, then put the scabies medicine on her. We just went on a walk on the beach and she fell asleep. Then Dylan started getting tired and wanted Mommy. LOL. My arms are sore now!We're both just so happy. She's so incredible and perfect. She seems to be warming up to us, but that may change once she realizes we're not taking her back to her 'home' for the past 8 months!

I think Maddie's fat little foot in the standing photos might be one of the cutest feet I have ever seen. Congratulations!
