Beware - by looking at the following photos, you will fall pretty hard for our little girl. Consider yourself warned.
Yesterday we got our long-awaited WanYing update from WACAP and learned the answers to some of our lingering questions about WanYing and her current living situation. And, most importantly, we got awesome and adorable photos of our baby girl!
Height: 33 inches (up from 30 inches in October)
Weight: 24 pounds (up from 20 pounds in October)
Foot length: 4.7 inches (I wonder what shoe size that is?)
Number of teeth: 16
What are WanYing's favorite words and phrases? She now can call daddy and mommy, and says “let’s eat” and “go play”. Can understand what an adult speaks to her.
How many fingers does she have on her right hand (we have had trouble telling from photos exactly what's going with her right hand)? There is a finger on her right hand and it can move and form a firm grip on objects. [And we are so excited that there are pictures of her grasping blocks in both hands!]
Is WanYing still living with her foster family? She’s already taken back to the
orphanage to live. [This isn't surprising, but we're sorry to hear that she will have endured so much transition in the previous and future couple of months]
Does WanYing have nicknames or is she called by any other name? No nickname and we just call her Wan Ying.
Other glimpses into WanYing's personality: She is a smart girl who not want to play with a dirty toy. When she sees garbage on the floor she would pick it up and throw it into the garbage can. She is a generous girl who likes to share foods or toys with her roommates.
This is such a great update and makes us all the more excited and anxious to get to China and hold this sweet little girl in our arms!
