cuteness overload

as sweet as honey

I can't get enough of my girl. I am a little biased, but I do think she is the sweetest little thing on this planet! She has a fabulous personality, full of love and silliness. I know she is learning from us, but I can't help but feel she was shown a lot of love before we got her. I am so very thankful for those in the orphanage who cared for her and really made her feel special and secure. Building a bond with Lilah has really been amazing, I never imagined it to be like this at all. I want to thank all those who prayed for the bonding process to go smoothly, we have a lot to be thankful for. Colin and I continually look at each other and shake our heads in disbelief, she is all we ever dreamed of. Some more pictures from today here.


  1. Your Lilah is absolutely precious! I totally understand your feelings about your daughter. I feel the same way about my Lily, who we brought home in April 2008 and is also from Guangdong. I could just eat her up and can't get over how adorable and sweet she is!

    In case you're wondering, I found your blog from Kim's (3 Peanuts).

    Congratulations on your baby girl!


  2. Jill,
    One Year from now, 19 months from now, and beyond you and Colin will still be saying that. I know, because Jeff and I still do daily! Lilah really reminds me a lot of Ruby Mei! You are so blessed!!!!! Happy New Year!


  3. I enjoyed following you to China! Your daughter is SO beautiful! What a blessing indeed!! Happy New Year!

  4. I just found your blog - what an adorable daughter you have and how proud you must be.

  5. She is truly deliciously darling!!!

  6. Jill,

    She is so darned cut I am not sure how you get anything done around your house! I am so thrilled that the bonding is going so well for y'all. I am praying and keep the cuteness coming:)
