My baby

I know this is all you really come here for so I will start with this! Look how long her eyelashes are in the one picture. She's so amazing!

























































Today we went to an embroidery shop. Changsha is known for its embroidery. It was quite amazing to watch these women stitching away with their needle and thread. All the items here were handmade in this shop. We bought an awesome black and white cherry blossom wall hanging. We will have to get it framed when we get home. We had to have them remove the frame for us so we could travel with it.. boy was that a chore for them to remove the frame. I wish we could have kept the frame as it was really neat but it wouldn't travel! It's awesome! We also bought a little circular one on a stand that you can view from either side. They are pretty neat!

What a beauty! Has her daddy had the "you can't date until your 30" talk with her yet? She will be batting those eyelashes at all the boys before you know it :)

I remember that embroidery place. So cool. I could not believe the ginat Mao embroiudered pic - it was HUGE! Mia is soooooo sweet. I remember when Charlotte's eyelashes were stick straight like that as a baby - now they curve a little more. Can't wait to see more pics!!

She is so beautiful!

When I was in China I purchased a few things that wouldn't fit in my suitcase and I had them shipped home. Kind of pricey, but worth it in the end.
