Care Package for Gabriella

We sent a care package to Gabriella and it was quite fun picking things out to send her. Our social worker suggested we go to Build A Be*ar and record our voices in a stuffed animal so Gabriella could hear our voices before she meet us ~ so this is where the lamb came from and has a message from us to Gabriella:) As her weight is only 22 pounds, which puts her in 18-24 months on many charts, yet her height is almost 34 inches that would equal a size 3T we sent a variety of sizes over to her. I think we will have a much better idea once she is home with us and we can try different things on her ~ speaking of clothes, this little girl is establishing quite the wardrobe. Children's Pl*ce had a great sale about a month ago so we started her 2010 spring/summer attire:) Also, if anyone has ideas of items to take with us for Gabriella to play with while we are in China I would value your opinion...the last 18 years have been spent with basketball, golf, football...I think you get the idea so we are in need of ideas of what a very sweet 2 year old little girl my enjoy playing with:)

Awwww... makes my heart melt a bit seeing all that stuff ready to fly halfway around the world. I've heart from other families ... bubbles, sidewalk chalk, food, soft babydoll, and a backpack (so you can put all the stuff in it and they can wear it, carry it, etc).

What a fantastic idea with the bear...I love it. After reading your comment on my blog I realized I did forget to delclare something in Faith's package, her little socks! Yikes... hopefully it will be ok? Take Care!

So, I'm just getting caught up on your blog... don't you just LOVE all the bright beautiful colors of girly clothes??!! I have to say, my daughter's closet is MUCH more interesting for me to look in than my boys' :)
be blessed,
