Here she is!



My savvy blogger buddy Mandy http://mandy-land.blogspot.com/ spotted this new picture of Kaiya with her buddies over on Ellie's blog! YAY! Thanks for the heads up Mandy! This is the only one she has posted so far but I am sure more will follow soon. Kaiya is on the far right. Her good bud XiXi is in the middle and Tia is on the left. I love seeing all of them together. Look at our three little Yiwu princesses. Precious babies. I just had a thought... wouldn't it be SO COOL if we could get a picture someday of all three of them together again once they are home?

Can you believe this? The reports are all true. She is TALL! You are right Wendy... I don't think this little sweetie has ever missed a meal. ;0) It CRACKED me up when I saw this picture. My hubby said we need to apologize to Judy and Ellie because Kaiya has obviously been stealing food from their children. Hee hee hee...

It honestly just amazes me and makes me so happy. How does a little girl with a cleft palate get that chunky in an orphanage in China??? God's grace and someone loving her- that's how. I am so grateful that she has the ability to be a chunkster. It gives me such peace of mind. One of my biggest concerns was that she would be neglected or not have enough to eat. Well... we can see God took care of that! Thank you Lord that she is healthy and strong.

Goodness gracious. I think I better just not buy anything till we get there. I will have to bring some hand me downs from KK till we figure out what size she is. What is the vote out there?? What size do you think???

SO FUNNY! I can not WAIT to cuddle with that chunk of sweetness!! Those awesome cheeks just NEED my kisses. OH LOOK! She still has hair fuzz. Maybe they will leave it alone! Yeah right. HA! HA!

I will post more pics when I get them. Let me know if you see them first. THANK YOU ELLIE! This is such a special photo- to have our Yiwu girls together. Hugs, Angel

She is absoletely gorgeous and she is a chunk. I am excited for you to pick her up. You are right about the cheeks. They are just dying for a momma kiss.

She is just adorable!!!
Since she is the same age as Liv, and Liv is about the size of the girl on the left, I would say you should buy clothes about 24 months or 2T. I wouldn't go any smaller!!!
Oh I just love those cheeks of hers!!

Farrah and Jed said...

That is what I was going to say, At least a 3T...She is really big and tall and I know pictures adds (at least that is what I say about myself) HAHA

But she is big...How adorable!!!

I could just squeeze them all up.

Kim said...

Very cute!!! And I also can't believe how big she is.

When you get a chance, can you email me - kimhartz@Hotmail.com I have some questions about cleft lip/palate stuff and figured you may have done some research! ;)

Sara said...

Hooray for the pictures. What a sweet darling! I am thinking she might need 3T.

Lou said...

Awwwwwwww........ I know this made your week. She is TALL, but I bet she isn't as big as you think.... She is probably next to some TINY little things.... I'm glad to see she's so healthy!

Reba said...

I am SO glad you got a picture...and what a precious picture to have. I cannot get over how tall she is! I always think "China" and "petite". :) That is what I get for going in with preconceived notions. I hope you are able to get some pictures soon. I know from Guatemala...I counted on those pictures to keep me going...well, that and faith in God. :)

Michelle said...

What a bunch of cuties!!!! There is something about chunky little girls that I absolutely LOVE, maybe it's the chubby cheaks or extra chub to squeeze...or maybe the fact that I have a little chunky monkey of my own, hahaha. I just love those cheeks!!!!

Wendy said...

I'm going to vote for the 2T-3T range. She looks fantastic! Fat pink cheeks, bright eyes and so healthy! I agree, she must be the tallest chinese girl! You are raising a family of super models!!!

Angel,
My daughter is in a size 3T right now and I think that I wouldn't go any smaller for Kaiya without knowing for sure.

Congratulations!!!
