Real Men Love Pink

We received new pictures of the boys today, and I've pretty much spent the entire morning staring at them. I've told you before that I'm not able to share full pictures of them with you until they are legally ours. I made a few modifications, so you can behold the fullness of manly glory.


No, no, no. We need a gruff, cool dude face to compensate for the pink outfit.

That's much better.

He's standing, he's standing, he's standing! Is he cruising? I don't know. Is he walking? I don't know. But we do know that he's standing, and this is most definitely good developmental news. Our younger son also looks much fatter, which is a relief to this mommy's heart.

I purchased our plane tickets today as well. We leave from Beijing on April 7, which is only a mere 38 days away. Plus, we'll probably head to Beijing a few days early to go to the dentist, see some friends, and eat good western food. That brings the countdown to a mere 36 days. I think I can wait that long. In the meantime, I'll continue staring at our manly man in pink.

We have good friends who also adopted two brothers from E. If you would like their email, I know they would love to be in touch with you. They live in IN and their sons are Johannes and Kamrun.

Whoo-hoo tickets! And bought with the wayward credit card. So many hurdles and yet it's really happening. Looking forward to seeing the not blurry pictures.
