Welcome to the HOT box

Our A.C. is broken again. This is an annual thing. Seriously. EVERY SUMMER. Good thing is that it's not a terribly hot night. Our dogs do not agree. Tomorrow is a holiday. So unless Jon can fix it. We will remain HOT. He will try to fix it. I will stay away from him. But you're not interested in the humid, sticky state of affairs in our house. The mural is FINISHED. Enjoy the pictures....(if you want to see them bigger, click on the pictures)





Wait....you didn't want to see room pictures, did you? But we worked so hard on the pictures and you were a captive audience. Thanks for the indulgence. Now onto what you've been waiting for....

CLAIRE in all her glory. She's amazing. I can't wait to meet her, hold her and kiss her little face.

She's in a dress!!! Can't wait to dress her up.
Checking out the Grandparents. Jon's Dad really is in the album, even though this picture has him cut out. My folks are on the left. Jon's Mom is in pink.
Lovin' this picture for some reason. She's wearing a sleeper we sent, along with the blanket, and we also sent the giraffe.
My new favorite. She just looks like she's chillin'. I LOVE the onesie we sent. It's the "Daddy says I'm beautiful" onesie. I also made the hat and cream colored blanket around her.
Tummy time!!

Oh Ann! She's just precious. She looks so alert and just read to go get the world. I'd agree with the onesie, she IS beautiful :)

And the room looks great too...

I'm loving the new pictures! I'm so happy for you that they took pictures of her with/in the things you sent. And hey, she's not bundled in 8 layers of clothes! What a cute baby. I can't wait for you to bring her home.

Ann,

She is so darling and looks so well cared for.

And the room is beautiful! Truly a gift of love.

I am here to ask a favor from you. I am starting a new blog to support adopting families and I was wondering if I could list your blog under my Taiwan family blog section. Would you be willing to be available if a family had questions and wanted someone to e-mail? Those are two seperate things, you can list your blog and not be available for questions.
Let me know,
Kimberley
