Okay, okay

So, I've gotten a few messages this week from friends and family wanting to know if there are any new pics of the girls or any updates on life in India. And, since Megann has officially grown out of the tiniest pajamas that she was wearing in the previous blog posts, I guess it is time to get back to it.

As for news, there isn't much. We are so grateful to everyone who has helped us to raise money for a larger vehicle. We have enough, and now all we need is a vehicle! Right now is tourist season, and there are so many pedestrians and busses in town that we just keep our little car parked here at the school. Ryan will probably need to go into the larger city to go "car shopping", but that just isn't a possibility right now. Our next big trip will be to the US Consulate in Chennai to get Megann a passport, and I've already informed him that we will be flying. No long car rides or overnight trains for this momma and baby right now!

Here are the latest pics of Megann (Meggie Moo, as her sisters call her).





Just so you understand... this post took me over an hour to write. Most of it was done one-handed while trying to get Megann to stay asleep. It was interrupted by two "wake-ups" from her nap, a feeding, a diaper change, and then a full outfit change. I'm not looking for sympathy, just understanding... Okay, so maybe a little bit of sympathy - this fourth baby thing is hard work! :)

Is she starting to wear her hair like her dad? I think the third pic looks like me many years ago!

Thanks for the extra work you put in to update us! I'm in full nesting mode myself, preparing for the third child (and why was I so nervous about having the first child? Now one child seems so old hat, eh?).

Sending blessings your way, dear friends! We miss you so.

I totally understand. I did everything until the 4th one. However, I did spend a lot more time just holding her because I knew she was the last. I have no regrets.

Just beautiful! So fun to see how she looks like her sisters in these pictures at that age. She is just beautiful. Wish I could be there to take your oldest 3 out so you could just be home with one for awhile. Sure miss you all!

Amen, sister. I hear ya.

Megann is so, so beautiful. Thanks for the update and the pictures!
