That baby is so in love with you two! It's almost as if she has been the waiting for you instead of the other way around. I have never seen such a natural family bond and her laughter is proof of how complete Sophie feels as part of your family. We can't wait for you to come home but its really nice that you can have her all to yourselves for a while...what a beautiful Christmas you will have together!
Love you all,
Rhonda

That baby is funny to me. That is some good stuff. Nothing like a baby's laughter to make days so goooood! It is amazing looking into her head wondering. What makes that thing funny to you? I loved that with Kendall. =) Keep these things coming!

Jo said...

My how she's fallen in love with you guys... but what's not to love when you have the best, most loving parents in the world! Praise God for knitting together such a beautiful family!

What a beautiful sound! And a beautiful family. I'm so thankful that you guys have bonded so well and Sophie is obviously loving you! I was watching the video this morning with my Sophie, and when she saw Sophie Mei, she looked at me and smiled and said "Yes!" (her new word). :-) I thought...that's right...YES! Love you guys...Stacey and Sophie

I actually don't think she was adopted...I think it's all a SHAM because she's definitely got Sherry's accent when she laughs and Marc, she has your skin tones. hahaha (very little humor for today). I could watch this ALL day, but my boss would not appreciate that. how is she sleeping? Amazing to see how at ease she is with you. I agree...seems like she's as in love as you guys are!

How precious! The very first pics of Andrew, the day we brought him home, were taken while he played with this exact set of play cups. These are sweet memories that you will cherish forever.
