Sweet Baby Girl

Here is sleeping beauty! She falls asleep on her own and always has her arms like this.:)Would you look at that smile??!!
Love the nose scrunch!! Smiley Stanley!



Mommy and her girl!



Daddy's little princess!
I told Doug she is smiling in all the pics of him holding her. That would be because she LOVES her Mommy so much! Lol!!!! She is the happiest little princess!!!
We enjoyed another day here at the hotel bonding. Tomorrow we will have our embassy appointment. We will hopefully meet up with the other families from our agency to have dinner. The weather is very cool. Like October there almost. I feel horrible that we packed NOTHING warm for Lola. We are keeping her bundled in a heavy blanket. Don't worry! Doug loves the cool weather. It's chilly to me. Hope all is well at home!
Thanks for the sweet comments. Keep them coming. It is what keeps us going when we are missing home so much.
Praise God from whom all blessings flow!

I can't imagine her being more beautiful in person, we are ALL in such awe of her already. Grayson asked to see Lola, Doug, Ju Ju and the pictures of Bren and Bry as soon as she got up this morning. Shelby says she can't wait to play with and Collin said mom, she is just too cute. Love logging on when ever we can and seeing all of your smiling faces, can't wait for you guys to come home. Love you lots. All of the sweet Stanley loving will keep her warm!!!

Julie and Doug,
Lola is completely adorable. Heather called me over the weekend and asked me to check you blog, (lightening hit their computer and she was going crazy not knowing what was going on with you guys) and anyway, now I'm hooked. (I'd never been on a blog before) I check your blog a couple of times a day now. Hope you are safe.
p.s. Baseball is back! We are supposed to practice a couple of times this week. Shawn can talk to you more about that later. Take care!

Grayson asks to see Lola as soon as she gets up in the morning and of course Ju Ju, Doug and the boys. She is already crazy about her and so are we. Grayson keeps saying look mommy happy, what a great word do describe you guys, the smiles say it all. Our prayers & thoughts are with all of you, can't wait for your safe return home. Crystal and the girls are coming over this afternoon so we can show our new baby girl off. LYL

I just love the two pictures of each of you will Lola! I love how she is holding on to her Daddy's shirt! So sweet.

I think you guys sent us the October-like weather. It was chilly today, only 69 degrees!
