more new pictures of my munchkin

I was surprised with two new pictures of my munchkin today.  One is of her on a white blanket on the floor.  There are two tiny hands on the bottom right side where it appears another munchkin was trying to sneak into her picture - how cute is that?

She is wearing the cutest red dress in the picture.  Don't you just love the belt?

The other picture is of her being held by a different caregiver than in the other pictures I've received.  She is holding her in front of a small Christmas tree.  It's things like the tree in the background or the mobiles in the background on the last set of pictures that really make me happy.  You think orphanage and decor and homey don't come to mind.  It's nice to see that she's not in a completely sterile environment.

The only bad thing about these pictures is that she still is not smiling.  What I wouldn't give to see my munchkin smile.  She looks healthy and seems to be thriving.  They tell me she now weighs 14.3 pounds and is 26 inches long.  Obviously I love getting new pictures but it is also depressing to see how much she is growing and changing and I'm missing it all.

I know, I know. We are so lucky to have these updates but they are bittersweet :)
Just think: 2008 will be the year you have your daughter home! Hopefully sooner rather than later of course!

Soon.
