Good to Go

It seems that my cookie face likes to sleep on the floor.  So, guess who else is sleeping on the floor?  Not that the beds at the White Swan are much softer. 
 
Guangzhou is very hot and very humid.  You get your energy sapped pretty fast when you go outside.  All of the stores like to try to get you to buy from them when you walk by with the babies. 
 
I got my Adoption Barbie. It's pretty neat but my mom said the baby doesn't look Chinese (I  agree).  We had our medical exam today and they were concerned about oxygen and flying so we go to the children's hospital tomorrow to get oxygen.  We only have two more days here in Guangzhou.  Then we fly to Beijing and leave there Thursday morning.  While I love my daughter's homeland, I can't wait to get home.  It will be easier not having to boil everything when I'm doing simple things and I miss my bed and my family and my friends.
 
Grace is still pooping (2 x today).  She got a new tooth in our short time together.  She's a real trooper.  Her personality is slowly coming out.  I think even after the surgery we'll continue to be surprised by my favorite cookie face.

I simply LOVE this pictures! She looks like she is having a BLAST with the food! =) I CAN'T wait till you get home, BUT I know you'll be busy and it'll be a while before I get to see you. At least you'll be in your own familar surroundings. Kiss little Grace from her Aunt D and tell her to hang in there she's alomost HOME!

Oh, my goodness... you can see her wonderful little personality emerging already. You might have some competition for the crazy girl prize, Jamie!
