buttercupcake


Such a sweet wee face.

We are so excited to introduce our daughter!

Song Xiao (Dawn) Yuan (garden)

Born on January 26, 2010 - she's a tiny, young nugget of love!

Someday soon we will travel to the province of Guang Dong where she sleeps "deeply" at the YangXi SWI!

She is a healthy girl who loves playing with adults, has 2 teeth, can hold her head up & roll over - at 6 months!

She's as big as our chubby cat, Peyton: 14.5 pounds!!


Immediately I feel that she is smart, somewhat fearless, very likely quite sassy, wants to be involved and needs her mama (& baba) to hold her tightly and feel all the love cascading upon her little life.

Such an amazing day.

Such an amazing time.

So many feelings.

Thankfulness. xoxoxoxoxo

It's hard to imagine in just an instant you having nothing but a dream and then, a face! She is a very pretty baby! Congratulations times a million!!!!! Now the real waiting begins....

I'm going to start sewing little gifties!

Please let me know if I can do anything for you, like cat-sit while you are gone and bring you dinner when you get back, or grocery shop for you the day before you get back so you have something fresh in the house.

Kelli said...

She is beautiful! I bet you cannot WAIT to see those other pics!!! The "visa" style photo of my daughter from referral day makes her look a little grumpy like "why are you taking my photo!!!?"- buttercupcake's pic looks like "What?? really? Mama? Baba? I've been WAITING FOR THEM!" :)

You will love being JUST in one hotel the whole trip- I did! (even though my hotel room looked like a tornado ripped through it...a little 17 lb tornado...) It was great to not have to pack & move hotels mid trip!

Tammy said...

Perfect. And worth every moment of the wait. She looks inquisitive. Bet you can't stop looking at her picture. How wonderful to finally find out who SHE is and see HER face.

CONGRATS Momma,Baba and baby Buttercup.

HuluMama said...

Joannah said...

I am so happy for you, friend!

Congratulations!
I met the lady who adopted Lena and Lionel at the PSR picnic last week and was looking at your blog to show her pics of Peyton. :)

K said...

Your little buttercupcake has a little friend wearing the same outfit. I wonder if they've been cribmates?

OMG, she's beautiful. Sorry, I've been lurking for so long, but the word verification has been vexing me. For this grand news, I officially became a "follower" so I can comment. This is WONDERFUL GOOD NEWS!!! Congrats! And only 51 months and how many days?

Polar Bear said...

So Sorry to be so late~

CONGRATULATIONS!!!! Buttercup is absolutely ADORABLE!! I am so excited for you both!!!

Congratulations!

Fliss and Mike Adventures said...

I just shown Shauna the photo of Buttercup... she started to smile and her little giggle... who knows... they just may have known each other in the orphanage... well, maybe but it is a nice thought...

Kristin said...

OMG - I am SO late to this party... so happy for you and the most lovely and long awaited Buttercupcake! Blessings to all of you. xx
