So far...So good

We had a fine night.  Lisi slept through with no problem and woke shortly after Shell and I.  We had a great time watching her eat the various buffet items at breakfast.  She ate everything we put in front of her.  She has been funny about one thing.  Whoever is holding her is her favorite.  Not one of us over the other, but just whoever is holding her at that exact time.  If I am holding her she doesn't want much to do with Michelle and vis-versa.  We worked on that quite a bit today and I think she is over that now...maybe.  

We had a civil affairs office appointment for more paper work.  It took a long time and Lisi wet through her diaper and soaked Michelle.  We got back to the hotel, changed and went to lunch at Lucy's.  Lucy's is a restaurant that serves a little bit of everything.  We had pan fried noodles, an assortment of skewered meat, and some french fries.  Lisi again loved it all.  At lunch I overheard a guy talking about a music store with super cheap guitars, mandolins, etc and decided to go try to find it.  We took a cab into town but had no luck.  I will need some help trying to locate that place I guess.  Lisi fell asleep on the way back and is now napping in her rent-a-crib.  


  1. Congrats. She looks adorable. :-)

    Greetings from another mother to a Dongguan child

  2. She's SOOOOOOOOO beautiful! You guys are doing great, obviously, and it seems like God is answering all our prayers for Lisi's smooth transition. Every picture is such a blessing -- thanks so much for keeping us updated! (Love to see her "using" her quilt!) :)

  3. She is adorable! I love the picture of you holding her in this batch she is sort of smiling, it is really cute. I guess you have a lot of things to do still in China but I can't wait for you to be State side!

  4. So happy to hear that things are going so well. I was dying to see the pictures all day and my computer wasn't cooperating, so I am so glad to see them now. She is a DOLL! Can't wait to see her in person. Thanks for your blogs, Shayne. We really appreciate you keeping us informed. Love to you all!
