At Last!

OK... So, the post you've all been waiting for! We left Antigua at 8:00 am and were in Guatemala City by 9:00 am. We checked in to the hotel and around 10:20 am, the foster mother coordinator called us down to meet our daughter. I could hardly keep it together going down in the elevator. The moment I'd been waiting for, at last!

Can you tell she is going to be Daddy's little girl?

She was hungry, so I got to feed her a bottle. Man, can she suck down the formula in no time flat!

It's only been a matter of hours but so far she is a pretty happy, content baby except when her diaper needs changing or she is hungry. Boy, she let us know when it was time for another bottle!

It has been quite a day to day the least. I just can't believe this beautiful baby will be ours very soon. We've been just staring at her the entire afternoon, taking in every expression. She likes to stick her tongue out!

My new niece is a doll baby! Dig the head band :-)

BTW, I called ahead and had her foster mom teach her the sticking out of the tongue thing. Ha Ha!

I need to see a pic of the three of you, Al!
