Another Monday Afternoon Surprise

September 27, 2010

I am starting to look forward to Mondays in Philly because it seems everytime I make the commute to our corporate office, I get some kind of surprise/update from our adoption agency!

Today was no different....

Shortly after lunch, I received our final travel itinerary complete with the names and numbers of our travel guides for each city!!

I read through it all and at the end there was a little surprise........

A new picture of Reagan!!!

Reagan 10 months-P-BLOG
I screamed out loud when I saw this sweet little face pop up on my phone!

She is growing and changing so quickly....... it makes me sad that we have missed the first 10 months of her life, but we are very thankful to have so many photos of her. We will treasure them always.

Part of me is still in disbelief that I am going China and in less than three weeks, I will be holding her in my arms.

For those that have asked...... yes, I am still up here floating in the clouds and something tells me that I am not going to be making my way down anytime soon.

I will post the details of our trip tomorrow. In the meantime, I couldn't wait to share the cuteness:)

Sharie said...

She is almost exactly the same age as Amelia was when we met. I had thought I wanted an older child, but was blessed to receive such a little one who still had so many firsts...word, steps - but boy did she have a mouth full of teeth when we met and they came in FAST those first months and I was a little glad I didn't experience ALL of them:)

I'm so excited for your family to go through all those firsts with Miss Reagan!

Debberoo said...

Oh what a lovely surprise!

Virginia said...

What a sweet surprise! She is beyond adorable and she looks so healthy! Her hair has grown, and like I said, it looks like it's going to be a lot like Kerry's. I love her expressions. You're going to have so much fun photographing her...it won't be long now!

Love Letters To China said...

Oh what absolute sweetness! I can't believe how many pictures you have of Reagan. I have to admit I'm a bit jealous. ;-) We only have but a few of Liam while he was living in China.

You are getting so close now. I remember so well the days leading up to my hubby leaving. Such excitement in the air. I can't wait to see and read all about your adventures in China.

Hugs...
