  1. Oh my goodness, this little girl is beautiful. Are you expecting a new picture of her soon?

    1. Yes, her last picture was taken in June of 2010 so anytime now I should be getting a new picture! I keep checking it in hopes of seeing it changed :).

    2. I know exactly how you feel. One of my correspondence kiddos' pictures was last updated August 2010, I've been checking everyday too.

      I hope in Alexandra's new picture she looks cleaner and happier, maybe with some shoes, though that may be a personal choice! Haha.

    3. I hadn't thought that maybe it's a personal choice. I do love going barefoot in the summer :)

    4. I think it's more likely, with the state of her clothes, that's it's not a personal choice, but it's always nice to think in a positive light.

  2. Happy Birthday to Alexandra!!!

    And I STILL say she looks just like the little girl who played Gretl in the movie The Sound of Music, haha!

    1. Oh my goodness, I hadn't noticed that before. I love The Sound Of Music, really all musicals, and Gretl was always my favorite. Maybe that is subconsciously why I chose Alexandra :)

    2. Haha, you never know :) I can totally just picture your little Alexandra holding out a bandaged finger saying she got it caught in "Fredrick's teeth" lol. I'm glad to know you can see the resemblance too though and I'm not totally insane, because they look a lot alike to me.
