Saludable (Healthy) S


Today the babies had their physical exam, required for entry into the U.S. Like everything else so far it was a blur. They did not even check Baby S's hearing, which is fine with us, because we know she can hear just fine. But like her brother, she has selective hearing. Baby S weights 17 pounds and we have no idea how long she is, because they did not tell us.

Jen, one of the moms, has nicknamed Baby S The Urchin and The Barnacle, because she is so content in the Ergo.

Doc, nice smile and everything, but this blog is about ME.

No baba, you may not suck on my Baby Snoopy pacifier.

P & R got Slurpees at 7 Eleven.

We have seen many pictures of these statues over the past three years. No one mentioned that it's within walking distance of the White Swan Hotel (where we would be if our agency was not so cheap). So this is the Chinese impression of American adoptive parents (the old dude looks like my Papi). I dubbed the lady Ms. Saggy Boobs, and I finally got to take my picture with her.

A sign for J.

Baby S and J at Lucy's, an American Cafe. They were in the same orphanage.

P wanted to sit next to Baby S. She is usually between us or next to me, but in the spirit of sharing I said OK. This is his idea of feeding a 16 month old, a heavy plate full of food, easily within her reach. Baby S had a grilled cheese and fries.

Mmmm, I love French fries, but I heard the mom person and dad person talking about not allowing me to have such a delicacy when I get home. Must stuff my face as much as possible. J's mother chose the bracelet that Baby S is wearing, and so far she has not ripped it off.

That slurpee mascot guy on the machine looks very apathetic to the fact that he's holding a slurpee that's bigger than his body.

Good God, I hope they finish the construction before we travel! When we were there we stayed at the Garden Hotel and it was very nice, but we ended up at the White Swan every day(my sis had friends who were staying there). Their pool rocks! I wish we could stay at the White Swan. I don't know why our agency doesn't use that hotel.
