Charlie Man

I am convinced he is the cutest little boy I've ever seen. I mean, who knew little boys were so cute?!

He gives the BEST kisses and puckers his lips way up. It is precious.

He has us all wrapped around his chubby little finger already.

When he's cute, he is REALLY cute. When he's mad, he is not so cute.

He understands so much already and I know it will not be long before he is speaking English.

He is an incredibly sweet little boy.

He can be stubborn. Really stubborn.

He was obviously loved in his orphanage. He just knows how to show love so well. It melts my heart. He was also obviously very spoiled in his orphanage. Hmm.

He is SO happy and is typically always smiling. And his smile just melts. my. heart. We waited so long to see it (in the year we waited for him, we never had a single picture with him smiling) but it was well worth the wait to see it in PERSON!

Everyone thinks he is adorable. And I'm going to have to agree.

I can't believe it's nearing a month since he became ours. Like with Gracie, it honestly feels like we've had him forever.

I'm blessed. Blessed to have this little boy as MY brother. Blessed that God would allow us to find him and to bring him home to be a part of OUR family. I just love him so much... and everytime I hear him say, "ELLO Jie Jie," with a big smile on his face, that love just grows even more.

His smile says ALOT! I bet he feels the same about you, his older sister!

I love to hear you "gush" over all of your siblings!!

You are about the sweetest 17yo I have ever gotten to know! I am thrilled that you let us take this journey with you. That boy sure is a cutie with an awesome smile!

He is a cutie! Thrills my heart that your family has become smitten with a little "emperor" from across the seas as well!

Aww, sweet posts Emily (this one AND the one about Gracie). I can see they are blessing you so much, and I believe you and the whole family is blessing their lives too by your love. He has such a sweet smile--so glad to see it after not seeing it for so long :)

That smile is a killer, isn't it!

Loved reading the tributes to both kiddos. They'll love reading those later in life- seeing how loved they were even before they came home! :)
