We have her and it's AMAZING!
I don't have words to describe how amazing my little girl is! She's come dressed in no less than 5-6 thick layers of clothing.  We've only managed to remove the top coat and her boots because she will have nothing to do with taking them off.  We're taking it one step at a time!  Boy can she eat!!!  She'll eat almost anything you put in front of her.  We haven't heard a cry out of her yet, but she's a bundle of energy and REALLY knows what she wants!  The girl doesn't stop moving and she loves rough-housing with Daddy.  I know the flood gates will open soon . . . so we're just preparing ourselves for that to happen.  I'm thinking once she gets tired enough she's going to decide she needs a good cry.  I don't have time to write too much, but I'll leave you with some pictures.  Thanks so much for the thoughts and prayers.  All the Facebook messages, emails, and comments on the blog are doing me a world of good!  Hugs to you all!

Congrats! She is just beautiful!!! I love seeing your pictures. Have your guide tell someone to come up and fix or figure out your Internet. Maybe Miss Courtney can help you!! I miss Wuhan, but sitting here typing with my Hubei sweetie snuggled is even better. Enjoy every second! Watch out for scooters on the sidewalk!

She is perfect! The bathtub picture is absolutely priceless. Plus, I can't believe you actually have a "sleeper." I am overwhelmed with emotion for all of you. I will continue to pray that your transition goes well.

PS-We will miss you at the SPED meeting tonight.

Lots of Love~

I found your blog on the RQ site. We also have an Amelia waiting for us in Hubei. She is 16 months old and we are hoping to travel in June, so I'll be following your blog closely! Thanks for posting!
