Finally a home update!

Sorry everyone. We have been very ill and very busy since we got home from China. We are all well now. Allegra is doing great! She and Gavin are doing well together and she has bonded with everyone in the family now. She is a very happy little girl!

She hasn't been able to speak any English yet, but I think she is understanding some though. She is crazy about all dogs! She squeals with joy even if she sees a dog on TV.

She has her first dentist appointment in 2 days. The plastic surgeon says that she'll need tons of dental work. She has teeth in her hard palate. Ouch, poor thing! She also needs to have tubes in her ears.

Gavin has had some major adjustment. He is getting much better at sharing everything with his sister now. He loves to play with her and wants me to wake her up when she is napping so that he can play with her.

It seems like she has always been with us. I can't imagine life without her. She is just the perfect match in our family! The Lord knew just what he was doing (of course he did :-) ).

Until next time :-)


  1. Nice to read an update. Love A's hair. :o)

  2. Allegra looks so great! It is fun to see how everyone in the family is doing a few months into this! I just stumbled across your blog and thought you all looked a little familiar. I then noticed your travel dates and saw we were in Guangzhou at the same time as you! (Not sure if we talked in the street or maybe met at the airport on the way home...) Congratulations again on your new addition!
