Just a quick one.

Just wanted to post this little video of our girl giggling.

Its 520am here and I've been awake since 420. Seems I have fully recovered from jet lag (meaning I can go to sleep without help and stay asleep) but about 430am or so is as good as it gets. I think I'm gonna head to the gym and work off breakfast before I eat it. HAHA.
Bfast is the best meal of the day, they have everything and anything you can imagine and its not just breakfast food either. We as Americans are the only ones who have an idea what "breakfast" should look like. You can find pork, chicken, rice, noodles, dumplings, peas, corn and many other what-we-would-consider dinner items on the morning buffet. Quite odd if you ask me.

Last night baby girl did not get rocked to sleep, mommy laid with her until she was out. She started babbling to herself which was adorable. Brian caught a sec of it and posted it on FB. I just loved it.
She is responding to her new name and she is understanding us. Its so incredible to me and I can only give God all the credit and all the glory for this.
Also, bath time tears lasted only for about 10 seconds last night. After that, she played happily and no tears when I got her out.

Just to brag on Brian for a min. When he went to our meeting/paperwork check yesterday while we napped he was the only one not missing one piece of paperwork. He's such a stud. ;0)
He is such a precious girl daddy. And I love seeing them together. I love the smiles she gives him and how she wraps her arms around his neck. I can tell she feels very secure in his arms and if its close to sleepy time, she will nuzzle her head into his neck and be out in a new york second. I am so excited to see their relationship blossom.

We are having an amazing time meeting all the different people from all different walks of life but we are ready to come home. Back to our life with all the amazing people in it. All of you back home reading this, we love and miss you. We are so thankful to be surrounded by such an amazing group of supporters. We are beyond blessed by all of you near and far who constantly support and encourage us. We are looking forward to several road trips to OK and FL so Jenna Grace can make her debut. God is good.

Aw she is so adorable and looks so happy!

I'm glad you are getting some good sleep...just in time for you to head home to another time zone. Funny how that works.

That was a sweet snippet about your husband and daughter together. I love hearing it.

Congratulations on being in the homestretch.
