Eammon and I are so in love with our little cue ball cutie, Maisie Miao, and can't wait to travel to get her.

  3. That little hand up is too cute! It's like she's saying, "Stop... in the name of hair!" Really, though, I've heard that the girls whose heads were shaved end up growing the most beautiful, thick, shiny hair of all!

    Hugs, Shana;)

    She is absolutely adorable and I love her little outfit. Just wait til she gets to your house and sees that only daddies have to use razors. That and being with her mom and dad and she will be in heaven. And have hair!

    Those big, beautiful eyes make up for the lack of hair - so I am guessing that I should send a big box of hair ribbons, bows,headbands, clips and of course lots & lots of love b/c Maisie will never see another haircut again :)

  23. I feel the same way about the head shaving. Such a cute pic...she's waving to you!

    During my daughter's long wait, I have looked at a lot of referral photos; but I do not think I have had one touch me so much as this. I want to hold her and tell her that everything is going to be all right.
    Congratulations

  37. Lisa,
    She is so totally adorable. I can't wait to see your family pictures. She might be sayin "Wait there a minute buddy where are my hairbows???" Mommy's coming. She'll bring lots of pretties for you!

  46. Don't forget to bring lots of hats to cover that sweet little head! We don't want her to catch cold :)

    ReplyDelete
  47. What a beauty Maisie is (and a great name too)!! I can only imagine how totally in love you must be with that precious girl. If she is this cute without any hair, she's gonna be a knock-out with some locks. Congratulations!!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Oh, that expression! ....

    Makes you just want to scoop her up and love her up. What a little doll.

    I can't wait to see her smily face ...of course with her Mama and Baba holding her tight.

    About the hair - They all have strange do's coming out of the SWI.

    Charlotte's was all jaggedy on the ends and shaved on the front hair line and temples (where they administer antibiotics via IV to the kids). And then in certain spots there were single strands that were allowed to grow to her shoulders. Odd. It took a while to get into a normal hair style. The good news is that Maisie has a clean slate, so to speak. :)

    I just love seeing her pictures. It looks like she has something to say, doesn't it?

    ReplyDelete
  49. Awwwwe.. she's waving to you! Can you stand it??? Wait until you wrap your arms around her little self and she gives you her first smile... you think you have it bad now?? Nope... just wait!
