2:17 here is China. Today we woke with a smile and we ventured out of the room as a family of 3. We went to breakfast where we found out we like congie. We strolled the hotel a little. We had a bottle and took a nap (see pic). We even, and this is big, went to the underground market. Every where we went, groups of women would gather and look. Every so often, one or two, with smiles on their faces would come up and talk to Emma and touch er little feet. A few would even use some broke english to say "beautiful". Jenn was able to get some great advice from many of the ladies on clothes to pick and size diapers to buy. Funny to watch Jenn communicate without a clue as to what is being said. And if you know how much Jenn does not enjoy change and the unpredictible, you know to laugh. She is so wonderful and is such a good mother (even after just two days). Tonight we are planning to go out to a steak house. Not sure where or what is meant by "steak", but we are feeling adventurous! We did buy Emma a Chinses "piggy bank". Mike, Micheal, and Nick will like to know that. haha Love to all. Thank you so much for your kind words and comments. we plan to keep them together for Emma to read years from now.
