We received an update today on our Jenna Mei.
We were really hoping for a photo, but I'll take the measurements they sent!
Any info is good!
Height: 96 cm./37.8 in.
Weight: 12 kg./29.7 lbs.
Feet: 14.5 cm/5.7 in.
So, she's gained 3 pounds and is 1.5 inches taller than the update we received last July.
She's almost the same height as Charlie now. Actually, 1.5 inches shorter...
so I think that puts her right about Laura's height. And a couple pounds heavier than Laura.
Goodness...they just might look like triplets!
Good news is that the clothing we packed should fit OK...size 4 slim. I think we'll have to wait until we get there to see what shoes she will need.
The boys and I had a nice chat about Jenna and what they may experience when she gets home, as well as a reminder about her special need. Jacob thinks her special need is cool because he doesn't know of anyone else like her! My optimist!
I also know that she will have some mighty upset brothers if someone picks on her!
Amen to that!
Brothers, protect your sisters!
I know for sure that Charlie thinks he will be her "main" protector...awesome!
Unless she's very strong-willed and wants to be HIS protector. Then there could be a clash of wills!
I keep wondering what her personality will be like,
and what her voice sounds like,
and if she will eat the food I cook (or order for delivery),
and how she will react to two bigger brothers,
and a "big" sister who is smaller than she is,
and who needs so much more help than she does?
Does she eat with chopsticks, or have they taught her to use a fork?
Have they let her hair grow?
Will she smile at us or cry or scream?
How will she sleep that first night? and with whom?
Oh, so many thoughts going through my head.
I guess I'll find out Monday...by the time you all wake up...she will be ours and we'll know the answers to our million questions!
