Shanghai Charlie

Isn't it simply amazing how the Lord works? I woke up yesterday morning on a full-blown emotional rollercoaster and then my prayers were answered by an update, with photos, of Charlie! 

I love that Charlie is dressed in green, my favorite color. Madi was the only baby girl dressed in green on her Gotcha day.  I also love that he is holding a flower, since Daddy has always been in the "Green" industry.

He appears to be doing great! We received his current measurements:
Height: 70cm, Weight: 9kg, Head: 47cm, Chest: 48cm

We confirmed that he sleeps in a crib.

We also confirmed that he takes lots of formula. Good thing we bought a baby bottle to take along. We can't wait to kiss those chubby cheeks.

Madi rolled over this morning with a big smile on her face and said, "Tomorrow I go to China!"  Now the days are melting into minutes:)

BEAUTIFUL!! I wonder if his caregiver knows what his little sweatshirt says...looks like Crime Scene Investigator! He might just be an explorer. :)

Safe journeys and lots and lots of prayers. We are thrilled for you.
