4 month Pictures and Health Report : )

Beautiful Baby Girl!
Pretty as a Rose!
It's SOOOO hard waiting........
I admit it.....I probably checked my inbox 50 times yesterday in anticipation of seeing new pictures of my sweetheart! Yeah!!! I was finally rewarded this morning for my persistence : ) There were mixed emotions looking at my "growing up fast" little girl. Sheer delight in seeing her smile and fun spirit peeking through her expressions but also that all too familiar ache as time is slipping by....Father, please bring her home soon.
Sarah's report says..... Wt.: 12 lbs. 7 oz. and Ht.: 22.5 in. (still seems tiny to me for 4+mos. old). "She is a very happy and healthy baby girl. She is content and very smiley(YES!!). She is almost sleeping through the night(another YES!!).
We continue to pray for God to be glorified through Sarah's adoption and trust Him completely for His timing but hoping that means her process will go fast : )
Oh, received many ?s about bedrest..... in 2
more wks. dr. says he will not stop me from going into labor....soooo, until then, he says I can do whatever I feel comfortable doing as long as I lay down if contractions start coming.....believe me, I've been testing the waters : ) Thanks for everyone's prayers and concerns!

Christ's love to you all!

Sarah is so beautiful!! When looking at those smiles you can almost hear the giggles behind them. I am glad things are going well for you as well. I am looking forward to the day I can come to the blog and see pictures of Emily too!

All our love,

I don't know who is more precious.....the baby or her cutie patootie mommy! You both look fabulous!!!!!!!! I know you are ready to get up and around. When they let me get off of bedrest Hayden decided to wait 2 more weeks until he came. I was like, "You've gotta be kidding me!"

Glad to see you've made it to week 36. Won't be long until you'll be holding baby Emily in your arms!

Praying for you and the continuation of your adoption.
