Maggie updates !

We used Ladybugsnlove to make an orphanage phone call for us. We were able to get four new photos of Maggie, updated measurements and asked ten questions about Maggie.

It was wonderful and amazing to see how Maggie has changed. The only photos we had were her referral ones and they were taken when she was about six months old. She looked like such a little angel baby. In the new photos, she is standing in her walker (one of her favorite things to do) and looks so big ! She is almost 11 months old now and she is able to sit and stand by herself. She is clutching a little toy and it is obvious that she LOVES to play ! Her cheeks are so big and round and it looks like she has no problem eating !! We have been praying that she has found favor in the orphanage and with the Nannie and from looking at her healthy cheeks - we believe she has found favor with someone responsible for the feedings. Maggie also has the most beautiful rose bud lips I have ever seen ! Seriously, her lips are so pretty ! We can't wait to see a big SMILE on her face. Oh, and she has four teeth.

Her updated measurements at 11 months are :
Height: 28 in
Weight: 16.5 lbs
Foot: 4.7 inches ( I think she would be in a childs size 3 shoe)

Like cold water to a weary soul, is good news from a distant land.
--- Proverbs 25:25
