Our China experience
Well I haven't had much time to post lately, as we have only been home for a week, and let me tell ya, this little lady keeps us busy, and oh can she be bossy. She is perfect for our family. The 1st few days we spent in Beijing, and from the morning to night we were touring and eating, so we were exhausted. Our families were worried because of the Tsunami in Japan (we didn't even know about it). Finally we flew to Guangzhou on Sunday the March 13th, and Monday we got Caydence. It was the most wonderful feeling in the world to FINALLY have our baby in our arms. Our son absolutely adored her from the get go. The whole time we were in China, he had to either push the stroller, or hold the baby in the carrier. It was great watching my 2 children play together. Caydence never cried, when she was handed to us, and it felt like we have had this baby since birth, She just fit in perfect. China was amazing, we walked the Shamian island, shopped, and met lots of wonderful shop keepers, and families. The trip was great, but 17 days was long. My daughter crawls, walks along the couch or table, wants to be held almost all the time, had 1 tooth when we got her, and got another after we came home. She says mom, dad, and baba (for brother) she is a good eater, and is friendly. Overall she is very happy, and we couldn't be happier.
