Nadia 3-30-07

Hello everyone, we are still having a great time here in Guatemala! Last night Nadia found her little arm, and was staring at it for what seemed like hours, but was really 20-30 minutes. Daddy had a blast taking pics of her, she was a little baby model! Click on the picture above to go to an album of almost 50 pictures!

We will have more soon, we are on the way to the pool for our first family swim.

We are so excited to finally hold Nadia! Here is a short video of our first few minutes in our hotel room, interacting with little Nadia. Keep checking back for more videos and pictures!

We are here and safe and the hotel is even nicer than before..Heavenly Beds and Pack n plays.....they bring her this morning we have not held her yet. Mike and I went out for dinner together last night the last chance for me to leave the hotel for the week :( But it is huge with several restaurants. We all know that I just want to hold her anyway. Check for photos throughout the week. The anticipation is not only exciting but a really nice place to be in this crazy process. When I woke his morning God gave me a great song and it will now be my theme song for the rest of this process. With Gavin it was Blessed be Your Name...
For Nadia it will be: You Never Let Go
Check out the lyrics

Thanks again for your prayers.

Psalm 103 was beautiful to us this morning read it when you have a chance!
Holding on to so many verses but this chapter was a gift from God this morning a we anticipate holding her for the first time

Also we are standing on:
Proverbs 20:24 The Lord directs our steps, so why try to understand everything along the way.

We also received her 3 month medical today and she now weighs... drum roll please....9.9 lbs and is 21.9 inches long.
Look out Nadia here we come... we cannot wait to kiss those cheeks and love on you. She is wearing the outfit we sent her and the hat we sent too. She is so pretty in PINK! (mommy's favorite color) What a blessing you are already so many people are already praying and dreaming of loving you...Especially Mommy, Daddy, and your big brother Gavin. He asks about 3 times each day to "baby watch?" because he loves to see your video. We are so excited to hold you soon and pray for your growth and development each day.

Nadia we love you,

Mommy, Daddy, and Gavin

We just received our 2 month medical and Nadia is doing really well...She weighed 8.1 lbs and was 20.9 inches long super TINY!
