Everything seems to be coming alive...

Cristina is so mobile, and so emotive and so much fun right now it's hard to describe how much in love we are with this little girl. She's so sweet!

She giggles and coos when she's happy...



She's starting to say Da-Da...even though I'm secretly jealous because I'm Pa-Pa (joke)...



...and when she's angry or sad, she's only for a moment -- and then her sweet disposition quickly returns.









She sleeps anywhere!...and three times in the last week she has slept from 7 pm to 5 or 6 am...it's been such a dream (though, yes, we know it will change soon!).



She's standing on her own...



She's eating with her hands...though sometimes it gets stuck on her face (she LOVES puffs!)



She loves the ocean and the beach...











And loves to be thrown high in the air...



She's strong, can push things around like a brute...but she's gentle and loving and is learning how to give kisses (open-mouthed for now but hey, we'll take it)...


Venturing out of the guest cottage in to the yard...NO FEAR...


She definitely supports equal rights!



She's learning!...

Watching Baby Einstein

She is getting to know her cousins, her god parents...and her other "little people"...








She's a total ham and loves to play in her crib after bath time...


She's becoming a bit of a fashionista...



And Chloe is still her big sister and always will be...



Thanks for following along.
We feel so blessed and lucky to have this wonderful, happy little girl in our lives!

Aloha,
Cristina, Chloe, Doug and Bill

  1. Awe I love all of the pictures and videos! She is getting so big and even more beautiful! I must say I am super jealous that you live in Hawaii, must be nice to be in bathing suits right now it's freezing still in Philadelphia, PA!

  3. Guys! Sooo cute. Good thing she seems to like the taste of sand ;) I can't believe how high in the air she is in that photo! If I tried that I'd totally miss the catch. Tell her we all want her to stay a pretty little baby for just a little bit longer. Please :)

  4. Baby C isn't such a little baby anymore... How did that happen so fast?! I love her little laugh and that voice when she says, "dada" is adorable. Don't worry, she'll be saying papa in no time. ;)

  5. Let's call it biological colonialism in reverse: Chinese couples are using IVF and rented American wombs to make new US citizens when the baby is born here. From the Global Times story: West Coast Surrogacy, in California, has worked with. If you are thinking to go INDIA for IVF surrogacy, then you must search for Surrogacy India, Surrogate mother India, IVF India, IVF clinic India & IVF cost india. I found Go Surrogacy for this treatment in India. Hope you also like these.
