Yesterday we received these wonderful new pictures of Shepherd!! They were taken on Chinese New Year’s Eve and evidently they had quite a celebration! While our little man refuses to send us a smile, he is evidently up for eating just about anything those ladies are offering, so that’s a good sign! Chris and I had to giggle at the ridiculousness of the amount (and what the heck is it, it looks like a big ol’ rib!) they are trying to put into that teeny tiny mouth of his. But he’s opening up like a little bird… gosh, I just can’t WAIT to scoop him up in my arms!!! We also received updated measurements: our boy, at 15 months, is weighing in at 20 pounds and is 29 inches! If these are accurate, he’s between the the 25 and 50% for Chinese boys in weight and between 10 and 25% for Chinese boys in height. The good news is, he’s growing! He now has 7 teeth, too 🙂
Thanks to all the support we’ve received from you guys, we are that much closer to bringing our little peanut HOME!!
