Can I get an AMEN!!!! We're almost home!!!! We leave tomorrow on a train for Hong Kong and we'll spend one night there and then homebound!! It's going to be a LONG day but I'm ready to take it on!! We need to go stock up on some new toys for the plane ride....and snacks!
All of the pics were in the hotel today because after our consulate appointment we came back and Jon and I weren't feeling great. We all took a marathon nap and then just hung out in the room most of the day. We did venture out to our favorite restaurant down the street. I told Jon if I eat one more dumpling I'm going to turn into a dumpling!! I may need to do a cleanse when I get back. I've never eaten so many carbs in my life, but I wasn't about to venture outside the box while I was here.
Molly is getting way more confident with us as she comes out of her shell more and more. Up until today, she didn't like for us to set her down for her to walk on her own. Not anymore! We set her down and she takes off running and is into everything! I forgot what that 16 month old stage is like, but I love that she feels comfortable enough with us to do it now. I guess I've been nodding my head when I give her a bite of something and say "mmmm, yummy" because now everytime I give her a bite of food, she starts nodding her head and moving her eyebrows. So stinkin cute! I need to catch it on video.

I can't believe how much our little girl has transformed right before our eyes everyday! It's truly a miracle! That scared little girl placed in our arms 12 days ago has blossomed into a funny, sweet, outgoing(with us), amazing little girl. It's crazy to say, but I don't remember life without her! She has blessed us beyond words. It's only going to get better when the family is finally together, and her brothers get share in the love. They are going to LOVE her!!
It's hard to believe that this is the same little girl from just a couple of months ago. God knew what he was doing when he handpicked her for our family. She's a perfect fit! She is a true Coco!!
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
