All packed and ready to depart for Haiti!

The hotel pizza is always a hit!

Stories with Daddy.  She will fit right in at home.

Still her favorite thing to play with, a spoon and either a cup/bowl/plate or the lid to the hotpot.

Floating with Daddy, for a moment.  With Mama nearby, it was a short float before she wanted her Mama.

It seems that on every trip, she tries to pack herself home.

Naika just keeps on growing.  We just got word that she has moved up to the toddler room at the orphanage.  No more baby for her.  She’s hanging with the big kids now.  Hopefully she won’t be in the toddler room too long, because she is home.

Looking forward to my next visit.  34 days our precious miracle.
