WANTED: For stealing her parents' hearts. Still, best mugshot we have ever seen. Beats any you can get on TMZ.

"Are you talking to me? Are you talking to me?" Baby S proving that she can lounge with the best of them.

The smile that stole our hearts.

The 411 on Baby S

Chinese Name: Wenjia Si Jing
DOB: 03/15/2007 (Big brother was born on 03/21, Auntie C was born on 03/13)
Height: 24” Weight: 13.2 lbs. (as of 12/2007)
City: Kaiyuan
Province: Yunnan
She is waiting for us at the Yunnan Social Welfare Institute (SWI)

Baby S:
- Is a deep sleeper (like her dad).
- Holds her head up, rolls over, picks up small things with her fingers (time to get Cheerios), crawls, and follows voices and objects.
- Laughs out loud, differentiates between strangers and acquaintances (this is going to make our transition interesting), is active, likes music and toys (great, because there is plenty of both waiting for her), is happy (like her big brother), smiles a lot and is quick to react (like her mom).

We are waiting for her picture via FedEx and will post it as soon as we get it scanned. While we are sad that we missed Baby S’s first birthday, we are elated to finally be able to bring her home. Our anniversary is next Sunday (06/15), and we are incredibly blessed, for the second time in our marriage, to be given the gift of life as an anniversary present.

Two years later...

We might get that long awaited phone call. Yes, The Call. WOW! Hopefully today we'll learn her name, DOB, province, and SWI. We are excited and exhausted. The wait has been the worst rollercoaster ride we have ever taken. Ironically, we both love rollercoaster rides; some (J included) have called us rollercoaster junkies. Heh! Baby S., can't wait to see you.
