Abby is here!

And she is fabulous!!! She cried for maybe 30 seconds when we got her but then settled down. She was a bit shell shocked last night, but she is rapidly showing us her little personality! She loves her bath, she loves to kick her feet, and she loves being in the Ergo carrier.  She doesn't show a preference for either one of us, and is quite content to be held by either...
 
She is tiny tiny tiny. She is swimming in her 3-6 month pants. The tops almost fit, but the pants are huge on her! And the shoes I have for her are all way too big. Not sure I can find any that will fit here. But I'll sure try!
 
Today we went to the government office and made her adoption official. Everything went very smoothly... I give all the credit for that to CCAI. These folks are definitely on top of everything! Then we came back for lunch and met with the director from the orphanage. I can tell he is very proud of his babies... as soon as we walked up, the girl with him starting saying "jiang yan, jiang yan" so she must have been pretty special to the people at the orphanage. The director had books made up for the babies, that has their pictures in it, the staff, the orphanage, and a little about it all. At least that's what I think it says... it's all in Chinese.
 
Hopefully tomorrow we'll get more giggles out of girl. We are seeing them, but she is stingy with them... you have to really be funny to get a giggle...
 
Now here are some pictures!

OMG!!!!!! She is so adorable. I don't think I have ever seen two happier people.

My mom had talked to Edra and we knew you all had her, but we were waiting for the pictures.

Many, many, many congratulations to you all!

Oh my word! She is absolutely gorgeous! And soooo tiny! Love all the Clemson paraphernalia. :) Congrats Mommy & Daddy! She was worth the wait, no?!

P.S. I'll bet Evelyn will translate the stuff in the book from the orphanage for you if you ask. She & James were awesome when we were there. :)

Aren't CCAI the best? You really find that out while in China. So happy to see another happy Jiangxi cutie with her forever family and another future tiger. Congrats! :-)
