Cutie Pie

Here was Miss Lola before we went out for breakfast.After breakfast, we decided to go to the pool area and sit in a lounge chair for more bonding!

She was smiling and talking up a storm!

We are so blessed to have such a happy, content baby girl!

More smiles!
Lola has been true to her name...a true JOY to be around. She slept well last night. She went to bed at about 7:30 and woke at midnight to eat, and 4 to eat, play and poop. She didn't even cry in the night. She just let us know she was hungry by grunting and making little noises. Today we decided we needed to do some bonding around the hotel. We all took a nap..a long one ...jet lag hit us today. ha! Lola loves to be talked to, played with, and sung to.
Our boys have been busy. We are REALLY missing them. So thankful they are hanging in there.
We can't wait to get home and be one big happy family!!
Hugs and Kisses to our boys!!!

Bryson says no fair because you guys have Lola. He also says her smile is so cute. Brennan says "I miss you and can't wait til you get home and give Lola a big hug and kiss for me, only. Don't steal any more kisses. Miss you!!!! Momaw and Popaw just think she's adorable. Everybody at church thinks she is so pretty and adorable. We've been showing her off. Have fun and we love you!!!!!!!

I am sitting here in tears... she is so sweet!!! She is the most beautiful when she is in her parents arms. You all have done a great thing by giving this little girl a loving and godly home. You will be blessed for rescuing her and loving her enough to travel across the world for her. We are all praying for you, all 5 of you. I love you all, get home safe!!
