another update on our precious lilah

We received an update on our beautiful baby girl this morning, and well, we are in awe, the photos say it all! We can't get over how much she has changed in such a short space of time, 1 month and 10 days to be exact! With this update we also got some interesting information about her.

- She is active and restless.
- She loves colourful toys that make noise.
- She is walking alone.
- She can say single words such as 'Ma' and 'Yi'.
- She drinks formula with rice cereal three times a day and congee once a day.
- She sleeps from 9:00pm - 5:30am and naps for 2 hours in the middle of the day.
- She has grown 1 cm in height, 78cm tall now.
- She has gained a few more teeth, 6 in total.

She is so sweet and we are so wanting to hold and love her in person! All being well it should be some time soon, possibly November! (Update courtesy of Kelly & Angela at ladybugs and love from above)

And somewhere while you’re sleeping
Someone else is dreaming too
Counting down the days until
They hold you close and say I love you
And like the rain that falls into the sea
In a moment what has been is lost in what will be

When love takes you in and everything changes
A miracle starts with the beat of a heart
When love takes you home and says you belong here
The loneliness ends and a new life begins
When love takes you in it takes you in for good
