Here we are!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Okay, here are the first pictures of our daughter, Miss Chani Mei Ren. Her name means beauty. She is so much prettier than her photos. I can't believe how beautiful she is. Now, if I can only get a smile out of her.

Matt's comment, "I can't believe we have a daughter. Isn't that weird?"

Check out her BOWS!!!

She was happy at the very begging and when she was checking me out, she put her fingers in my mouth, touching my teeth. She is adorable! She then started crying and cried for a few hours. She is pretty stressed and having a hard time adjusting but she is starting to come around quite a bit now.

It's dinner time so I'll post more when I can but for now, here are a couple photos.
