Today we received an exciting update about Lily which was as follows:

Child: Yin Bing Qiao

Date of Birth: 6/30/2008

Location: Yi Yang SWI

The following information was received via SSIT by email on May 21, 2012

Bing Qiao is an active child with an extroverted personality who loves to laugh, but she doesn’t have a lot of courage when meeting new people. She knows that her parents will be coming soon to meet her and take her to a new home to live. Bing Qiao has a set caregiver to whom she is very attached to. She can take care of younger sisters and brothers by playing with them.

She has been pretty healthy lately and has not been sick.

Bing Qiao’s has good eating habits and is not a picky eater. She eagerly eats the food provided by the institution and has not experienced any food allergies.

Now she can speak 5-6 word sentences using simple everyday vocabulary. She can count within 10 numbers.

She can eat on her own, rinse her mouth and put on and take off basic clothing, she needs help from adults to zip zippers or fasten buttons).

Current measurements: head circumference 49.8 cm, chest circumference 50.8 cm, height 97 cm, weight 13.5 kg, foot length 14 cm.

Julia and I are very excited and immediately got out a ruler to figure out how tall she is and try to guess her measurements.  According to the internet research we did, she seems to be a little smaller than an average 3 year old in terms of height, and about the size of a 2 and a half year old in weight.  So we will definitely need to getting her eating healthy.  Ironically, she currently weighs the same as our dog Misha.  So, it gave us a nice comparison.  Also in terms of her vocabulary, 5 to 6 word sentences is actually right on track for her age, so she seems to be doing well developmentally.

It sounds like she has a great personality, lord knows we can always use more laughter in our lives. So, that is the latest news update!
