Update from the Orphanage

Today we got an update from the Chengdu orphanage where our Magnus is right now!!! Oh my goodness, Ryan and I were so thankful to get this!! He looks good and I am relieved to just SEE that he is well and cute as pie!!!!!!

Our little Magnus is a tiny thing. His arms and legs look so little. But that smile, THAT SWEET SMILE, completely reassures me that he is going to be fine and I need to stop obsessing.

We found out from the report that he can sit by himself, roll over, crawl and stand! He loves to be held, doesn't suck his thumb (the girls wanted to know this about him), he is very clever and especially loves candy!

Magnus is 20 lbs, 30 inches long, and his foot is 4.3 inches long. We know much of the information we receive from the orphanage could very well be fabricated to make him seem bigger and healthier, but his pictures speak a thousand words! Our Magnus is doing well and we hope to travel very VERY soon!!!!!!!!!
