We have a name....

We have decided to keep her given name which is Jia Lan.
We are going to send a care package this week and I am leaning towards Ann with Redthread China. I need to get on the ball and dig up some pictures to put in the photo book. We are going to send the PJ package too.
This weekend was busy!! Trying to get every last home project done before we travel to China. This weekend we bought nine new doors for the upstairs and guess what.... every single one of them is about 1/8 of an inch to big. Nothing is as easy as it seems. Sunday was all about Jia, we went BabiesRUs and added some items to the registry and went clothes shopping for baby. Jay had a hay day!! I also started working on the travel paperwork and oh my is it overwhelming. These few weeks will fly by!!
Mommy and Daddy love you Jia and we'll be coming to get you soon. :o)


  1. This is so excellent... I am so happy for you both and it is nice to hear that you are keeping her Chinese name... please don't tell me about the excess paperwork... just thinking about that gives me a headache... now all I want to hear is more referrals :) Hugs to you...

  2. Love it!!! I shopped on Sunday as well! :) I ordered the PJ Package from Ann... I plan to later do the photo album package... thought I would space it out some! (and I need to get new pictures of the grandmothers!)

  3. Beautiful! We decided to do that a while ago and it just felt so right and perfect. Now we just need a referral so we can find out what her name is! :)

    Yes the weeks will fly by! So SO SOOSOSOSOSOO exciting!

  4. I love her name!! It is a real whirlwind of activity right now for us too!

    Keep smilin!

  5. Jia is a lovely name and very suiting. She is just beautiful!

  6. Ann from Red Thread China is absolutely wonderful. We went with her for all of our son's care packages...She even arranged a birthday cake to be delivered to him :-) You will love her!!

  7. I second many...Ann is wonderful! Our care package was sent just as we ordered and very quickly! Isn't it fun sending your first gift to you little Jia!! :)

  8. When my friends and I saw her given name and
    we knew you could not decide between isabel and
    abagail, we all agreed that Jia Lan was a beautiful name. It is very fitting! Can't wait
    for Christmas to hold her!!! Aunt Annie

  9. Her name is BEAUTIFUL! You will not regret using Ann. She is just awesome!
