I recognize your pictures from the People's Park in Nanning. We stayed right around the corner at the Majestic. I LOVED that park. It was amazing how peaceful it was in the middle of the city.
Enjoy your sweet girl!

Asher is going to be a great dad someday! And I cannot tell you what a gift he is for that little girl! Imagine getting a mom, a dad, sisters, AND brothers all at once. Wow. The sweetness overflows! And to have an older brother like Asher … how cool!Thanks for the photos and updates–they are wonderful! And you do look smashing in all your photos! How do you do it and can you bottle it. I guess being a mom looks super good on you! 🙂

Stefanie,I'm not sure I've ever commented on your blog, but I'm a long-time lurker (I'm pretty sure y'all moved to my neck of the woods this summer!). Every day, I can't wait to get to my computer to see pictures of sweet, gorgeous Vivi. She seems so happy with you and Asher. So, so, so happy for you.Melissa

I can't get over her smile, she seems so comfortable with you already. It took several weeks to get a smile out of my daughter. How beautifully sweet.
January 13, 2010 at 5:12 PM
Oh yea, I'd like to know how you always look so stinkin beautiful too!
January 13, 2010 at 5:29 PM
I am so happy to see Vivi in your arms at last. It makes me yearn for Cai to be in my arms so badly. I know that it will happen in God's perfect timing. I too am looking forward every morning for another Vivi day!! Love, Kim

Happy, happy day! What great pictures!
(Are all Guilin babies so incredibly stunning? The few that I know of really are!)
I do think, however, that Vivi is the cutest by far!
All the best,Nicole A. in OH

I'm just so drawn to these journeys! I think I figured out why. It's a picture of God and us. The parent has done so much to prepare for the little one. There's so much love involved there. It gets me every time!
January 13, 2010 at 10:57 PM
Look at you!! You are just glowing!! And big brother looks so proud. These pictures are gorgeous!!! : )
