a new "do"

lala (maternal grandma) and emma lael after a fun bath...3rd time a charm...tonight she fussed when i took her out of the tub...instead of fussing to get into the tub...what a difference 3 days has made...she is totally comfortable with us...she gives eye contact often...she is so LOUD...silly....and talks NON stop i've never heard someone talk to much in my life...seriously this girl can talk...she is very patient...always says please...thank you...ready and folds her hands...at new day the children are taught to fold their hands and say ready before they can be given a snack or meal...natalie & my mom are being so good with me doing everything for emma lael...today i noticed when she wanted something to drink or eat she would say "mama"...she is beginning to understand that i'm the one to care for her...it is so evident how well new day did with emma lael preparing her for us....God bless nai nai she gave emma lael a great start to life.
i clean up pretty good.

thank to ms. jenna emma lael has a new "DO"...her hair is thin but with this new bob haircut she is stylin...


  1. Congratulations on your new daughter. My name is Mandi and my hubby and I came home in May with Drew from New Day. I just wanted to stop by and welcome you to the ND family.

    Love Emma's new hair, she is just the cutest.


  2. What an adorable haircut- super, super cute. Glad to hear she is doing so well!! :)

  3. Hi! Congrats on your little one! My name is Gwen and we adopted Sarah (also from New Day) almost two years ago.

    Emma is such a little sweetie-- so happy for your family! :)

    Enjoy the rest of your time in China! :)

  4. Can't wait to see more pictures of the bob haircut! She is so cute!

  5. Oh Andrea... I LOVE Miss Emma's new hair-do!! She is just the cutest (along with Miss Khloe, of course!!) It is so fun reading about your journey. I remember the major breakthroughs we also had after day 2 and 3...HUGE difference! NewDay does an amazing job teaching and preparing them... We are all so blessed to be parents to these precious little ones. Indeed, God is GOOD!! <><
