We Got New Pictures

Today we got new pictures of our baby girl. Don't look too hard as we aren't allowed to post them until the adoption is completely finalized. It appears she got an extemely short haircut, similar to a butch. I'm not sure if this is normal, but I wish they would let her hair grow out a little. My cousin said to think of it as a "pixie cut.".
We also got measurements. At seven months, she is now 15 lbs and 25 inches long. This is small in comparision to my boys, but I think it may be actually on the large size for a Taiwanese baby. Can anyone comment on this? She looks rather well fed and quite plump. Glad to see she is getting enough to eat, of course she is our child. We didn't get any other info as far as personality traits or how the court process is going. We hope we hear something soon! The wait is agonizing.
We thought we had her name all figured out, and it's quite an unusual name. Now, we are second guessing it as we wonder if she will hate always having to explain how to pronounce it or spell it. We may go with more of a traditional name.
