She's Now a Big Girl
I was finally able to send Jei Jei's care package the other night, via Red Thread China, and Ann received these from Jei Jei's SWI and forwarded them to me. It's amazing how quickly they grow and change! She's definitely gained those three pounds and her face has lost it's tiny girl look. She actually looks like a seven year-old to me in these pictures. She's wearing the same red overalls as in the November 1, 2010 pictures.
She's got attitude and spunk, that's for sure! No doormat here, thank heavens!
It's interesting to me to notice my own reaction to receiving more pictures. I am so familiar with the few I have that my first instinct was to search each one for the most familiar expression, to reassure myself that she's the same little girl I've fallen in love with, then look at the pictures with new expressions. She looks so much older now than she did, but it's only been 5 months since those last pictures were taken. Thankfully, only two more weeks to meet her, only two more weeks worth of missing out on her life.
