Baby Bird gets wings!

We've had a lot going on these past few days! Poppy has finally started to get off my lap and she is slowly beginning to explore her new surroundings. And the most exciting thing is that Poppy is starting to go to her dad a little more each day! It's amazing to see how much she comes out of her little shell every day.

Her favorite place to be is still our front porch. Or the dining room table. Anytime we sit her down (in her own chair now!) she just giggles with delight because she knows she is going to eat. Remember, this girl can eat!!!

Here she is going to her dad for a snack...
My mom made us an Asian noodle dish for dinner the other night and Poppy was in her glory! She was so excited, she kept clapping after each mouthful and then wiping her hands all over her face...

Poppy just loves playing with her toy purse, but her favorite toy is my old pink cell phone...
Check out those dimples - she's got at least 2 sets of them!
This was her first day that she sat in her chair all by her self - I think she finally made the connection - this is the room where I get food!
And this was the other night when Poppy went to Marc for the first time. He was so excited, I thought he was going to cry - it was super cute.
And here is Poppy's new best friend. Lola had been staying with Grandma all week and we were super nervous about how Poppy would react to her. All the worrying was for nothing because Poppy just loves her. She squeels whenever Lola walks by her.

It's 10:00 and Poppy just went down, which means I need to go to bed too. She's been pretty sleepless for the past couple of nights, so I am absolutely exhausted from staying up with her. Keep your fingers crossed that things go a little smoother tonight - Mama needs her sleep!

Aww thanks for the photos! They made me smile and laugh. I love the ones of Poppy laughing and smiling, you are right, she has 2 sets of dimples! I'm glad Daddy is starting to get some love from his little girl. I'm sure in no time she will be Daddy's little girl.

I'm glad she's settling in well.

Oh my goodness....she is so beautiful! I absolutely love her sweet smile - it is gorgeous. It seems like she is doing really well, although I'm sure when she has been sad it is very emotional for you and Marc. We just can't wait to meet her. I really hope you can get some rest tonight!

AAWWW! How cute! I am glad she is going to Marc now, I am sure that means so much to him, and maybe that can give you more of a break. She is just adorable! Good luck with the sleep.

Thank you for sharing the photos and stories of both the good times and the struggles. It's good to know the reality of what I can possibly expect when it is my turn. :)

I can't believe the change in her. She looks so happy and comfortable. I am glad she loves Lola, I was worried about that! That picture is so cute with Marc, he is just beaming.

The smiles, the dimples, the look on Marc's face as he is holding her are so heart warming! Looks like your beautiful Poppy is starting to enjoy herself. Carol

Enjoy this amazing time :)

Dearest Amanda and Mark,
I have never used a computer before so here goes. I am so happy for all three of you, what a great blessing and joy it is to finally see you be parents of such a beautiful little girl. You are in my prayers and in my heart thoughts every day enjoy the ride. Love Aunt Patricia

Your daughter is absolutely beautiful. Again, I hope you don't mind a stranger following your blog. Our son has been home almost 6 weeks now, and it sounds like your first 2 weeks were very similar to ours. :)

Congratulations.

Amy (another mom of a baby from Korea)
