Found out we were approved on January 11th! We got it in the mail today!! Our agency will have everything on Monday when they get to work!
Next is our NVC letter which I think comes about 1-2 weeks from the approval date?
We got a little update on our little pumpkin! A new pic was included! Of course being her Momma , I examined it right away. She has a rash on her face- note to self bring
hydrocortisone cream for rashes.
It looks to me like she has only baby teeth- praying that's the case. We would love to experience the teeth falling out and the new teeth growing in!! The bigger girls can helps us with that because we are tooth fairy flops! They will love every minute of it!! It also means hopefully healthier teeth as an adult- and a chance to get a little fluoride in her!!
I'm already thinking I'll bring some barrettes. We need to let the world know she's a girl!!
Once again they sent the same measurements. This time I asked our agency to check on them. I explained that she would be in the 120% for American kids if she was actually that tall- and so very skinny. I am praying for accurate measurement- praying they take the time to actually measure her. With the ones we got her chest grew 1 cm- oh please people- measure the sweet girl!
Her feet are about a size 12. Anna's are about a size 10- I think Sam is a 10, too.
They are questioning her eyesight. If they are wondering about it, it's my guess she will need glasses. Ava will be our first little one with glasses- how cute!!
We are now asking for an update on Samuel, too! I got him a little Viking jersey. (You'd think they'd be on sale after the season they just had, but the weren't- bummer. I got A. Peterson, NOT Brett F.)
The jersey will no doubt facilitate the instant bonding with his big bro, Johnny!
Seriously, Sam will put it on and it's a done deal! Now if only I could find a t-wolves jersey, too!!
These are probably our last updates. We will send the children gifts next week.
Can't wait to bring these two cuties home!!
Hoping it will happen in March!!
