Don't wake the Rooster...

Thank you for all the comments and kind words... So many so quickly, we love hearing from all of you.

Well, it is now 5:45am and she slept through the night. Like her daddy, born in the year of the Rooster, we are hoping we get another hour of sleep out of her.

The Director of the Wuwei orphanage gave a general guideline schedule for all the girls from foster care (11 for our Wuwei group).

Up at 6:30am.
4oz. of formula w/rice cereal every 3 hours.
Water between every feeding.
1 morning nap.
1 afternoon nap.
Last feeding at 9:00pm.
Bedtime at 10:00pm.

Our little one finally got settled at midnight last night, and we got to unpack. (Sean had to complete legal paperwork from 11:00pm to 11:30pm with the group.)

Blah, blah blah.... here are a few more pics.

Good Morning,

She looks very happy and very settled. All that worry and she is just fine. No bonding issues with that lovely smile. You both look incredibly happy too. She sleeps through the night is a blessing that we appreciate with Ellie. She looks very healthy and I am sure Dr. Steve thinks so too. What was it like waking up realizing there was an angel in the bed next to you? It's a awesome feeling! Please let us know if she is.....
1. Walking/crawling
2. Talking

Sending our love. So much of it!
Fred, Jeanne and Ellie

Have a great first day as a family! Use that hip hammock!
