Getting to know Piper

Our first night with Piper went very well. After a long nap yesterday afternoon, we were afraid that we would spend a lot of the night awake. However, Piper woke up only once around 1:00 am. After about an hour, she was back to sleep for the rest of the night.

We spent this morning completing the paperwork for Piper’s adoption and the application for her passport. After a stop at Wal-mart before we returned to the hotel, we spent the rest of the day getting to know Piper, and her getting to know us. What we know so far: She likes to eat, and doesn’t mind telling you when she is hungry, she will use every ounce of her energy to fight falling asleep, she has a beautiful smile, loves to laugh, loves to be bounced, and splash during bathtime.

We were invited to our local guide’s room this afternoon to look at some silk clothes. Everything was so beautiful. We even convince Vicki to try some things on. It was a wonderful experience, and made for some great pictures

We are so blessed to have such a wonderful daughter, and can’t wait for everyone to meet her.

I am so thrilled to see her sitting up all by herself! She must have had some extra special nannies loving her and caring for her!
I am positive that I won't be getting a lot done over the next week...

Nathaniel usually only wakes up in the night when he hasn't slept *enough*. We have never had problems with him waking up because he slept too much!

It is just so great to see the three of you together. I hope you're enjoying every minute.
