Hope changes before our very eyes

The lethargic, dull-eyed girl from day 1 began changing rapidly, day by day.

DAY 2


The head housekeeper helped us feed Hope her first morning with us. Can you believe how beautiful the clothes are? This is a work outfit!


Hope and her Aunt PatL


Baby toys, nuh-uh. Just about anything else is fun, though!


sweet sleepy girl ...


First smile. She's discovered mirrors.

DAY 3


Gaining independence ... first time separated from mommy by even an inch


Snuggly girl

DAY 5


Fun! With a little bread on the side ...



... but
don't put me in that Snugli, mommy!

DAY 6


Our little rug expert weighs in.

Hi there, mll, I have to agree, she's a little doll. Can't wait to see her at Easter ... am trying to figure out a time to go down & visit sooner than that. Thanks for stoppin' by!!
