I've Got Visions of Sugar Plums Dancing in My Head!

Our sugar plum at 21 months old!

I've been waiting for 4 months to see this little face again. What can I say? It is the most surreal experience that I've had in a long long time. I don't know if I am surprised to see that she is still there; as if hearing about this tiny person half way around the world eight months ago was not real OR relieved that I still recognize that face which is home to the most concerned soulful eyes I've ever seen. She really looks like she could use a serious dose of some momma's love that this momma can't wait to give.

In my hot little hands for about an hour now, these precious snaps have been devoured, swallowing every last detail I can scrape from them – her size, her hair...oh how it longs for a scrunch and a bobble! The double bump of her brow shows such concern and the pout of her lips will surely give her parents a run for their money when discipline is necessary. Irresistible. She walks! A new development since the last video we viewed. And I even see a tiny bit of baby chub still clinging to her toddler cheeks.

Poor baby! I can just see her thinking...make the
woman with the camera go away now please!

This it the message that accompanied this treasure...
Sonalika for the Ross family.
Every time I try to take a photo of Sonalika she would close her eyes and pretend I was not here. It was pretty cute, but not so good for picture taking. I did get a pretty cute video of her playing with a ball and smiling.
So it looks like we have a new video of her coming....I can't wait. And of course, hopefully news of that darned NOC. Today it does not matter that it has not yet come. I am happy dancing and enjoying the moment.

I love that I have this one! What a treasure.

Hi Julie,

SHe is so sweet! I also got new pics of Nina from Lisa yesterday. She looks so grown up compared to my last ones. Thankfully I will not have to wait six more months to see her again. I will be travelling to get her in a few weeks!

Hope NOC is on its way!

Ooooh!! Those squoonchable little lips! Darling. She is just gorgeous. So solemn, don't you think? What a blessing to get these new pictures just when you needed them the most.

What a dear little doll baby! I love that pensive, partial profile (the one where she's looking down). You're absolutely right -- the pictures make ME want to scoop her up in my arms, and I'm not even her mother! I'm so happy you have video to look forward to!
With love,
