Have you heard....COUNTDOWN TO MY DADDY...JUST 3 MORE DAYS!!!!!

HER OUTFIT SAYS "WORTH THE WAIT". Oh, so true!!!
MALAENA-SLOAN'S TUMMY TIME! SHE ROLLS FRONT TO BACK AND BACK TO FRONT!

I can't begin to put into words how many emotions I am feeling. For one thing, I have SSSOOO much gratitude to our Heavenly Father for creating this precious child for us to raise. She's awesome. Our Malaena-Sloan has been in an hogar (orphanage) since December 19. Well, let me just tell you, they have done a fabulous job as she is a LOW-MAINTENANCE baby. She can totally put herself to sleep and occupy herself. She LOVES the attention from me. She woke up this morning and looked at me like, "Wasn't there a shift change? Are you working overtime?!" She had 12 caregivers in a week's time, so she's LOVING Mama's attention. I did get a shower and she was good just laying on the ground listening to music. Brock hooked me up on loading some great songs before I left. I'm going to raise an 80's chick. That's Brock's favorite music era though I didn't want him to load Queen which is one of his favorites. Malaena-Sloan is a natural dancer and singer. She gets it! We are both dressed in PINK today as we are praying for our embassy date to be issued which is called the "PINK" slip! I even painted her toenails PINK last night. It was HILARIOUS! She loves her feet so loved the end product but next time I'll do it when she's asleep! I had polish all over ME!
