We have some updated information on Ting Ting.
More recent measurements show her weighing 17.6 pounds at approximately 9 months -- that's a pound LESS than she weighed at 6 months. That doesn't alarm me, though; in fact, I kind of expected it. The babies are weighed with their clothes on and not under the best conditions; in all my reading, I have never seen anyone say that they got to China and found the baby was bigger than they expected.
Rachel Shu-Ting has grown a couple of inches, to about 27 inches long. Her new measurements all put her between the 50th and 75th percentile on the Asian growth charts. Her 6-month measurements showed her at the top of the charts for weight and the bottom for height, which is another reason I felt the weight was inaccurate. I would have expected her to look a lot chunkier in this photo if that were the case. The new numbers appear to confirm my estimate that she'll be wearing size 9-months clothing when we pick her up.
Of course, maybe it's THIS measurement that's off -- if so, we might have a BIG surprise when we get to China!
Lance and I spent last evening at our adoption agency for a travel meeting. We still don't have our travel dates, but we should know them soon. We got a lot of good information to prepare us for the trip, and we're all getting very excited! I'll post information as soon as I can.
