Trying to keep busy

I am updating
photo albums and scrap books.

I am spending hours on picnik, lunapic, and fotoflexer.

Abigail got her first tree ornament. It changes colors.

Thanksgiving Day, 2010

Most of another month has flown by since my last update.

Last Sunday our coworkers threw us a shower for Abigail. We got the high chair we really wanted, a lot of dresses, a few warm clothes and blankets, a stroller, some books, a few gift cards (very appreciated), and a small variety of toys. We still need a circle of neglect, I mean, a Baby Einstein Around the World Discovery Center, a gate for the top of the stairs, and a few other things. It was very nice that Larry's mother is in town and was able to come to the shower.

Also, in the past week, our Article 5 (the very LAST piece of paperwork before we are invited to travel) was delivered from one office in China to another. Our invitation to travel will be extended in 2 to 4 weeks. (Everyone, please cross your fingers for 2 weeks! We would love to spend Christmas in China!)

Quite a Surprise

Today our agency sent us an update on Abigail. She has gained 6 pounds in the past 5 months, is 2 inches taller and they sent a new picture too! In it she is sitting and she is clapping and it looks like she is looking at someone to the side of the camera, like she is copying their movements. The big surprise though, is that her cleft lip has been repaired! (We don't know about her palate.)

This is amazing!!
