Our Day


Wow! I don't even know where to start. He does Kung Fu, I am not kidding. He has a smile that is dangerous. He didn't stop moving till he fell asleep. He is bigger than I thought he would be and is stocky, and strong. He talks up a storm, too bad I have no way of knowing what he is saying. He told some waiters today he tried steak an liked it! He tells me Bu and Bu yao alot, this means NO and stop it! He has a little temper, well who wouldn't when you were taken away from everything familiar. He loves to play hide and seek and has the sweetest giggle. He had his picure book we had sent him and knew us when he saw us! He also is aware of Caleb, Rachel and Christian as his guh guhs (brothers) and jie jie (sister). He is full of life. He ate like a horse and shared it with his friends. i am typing this in my sleep but wanted to post something before I go to bed. This little guy is going to give me a run for my money. I am hoping he was just over stimulated today and that is why he was so active ha ha ha! Here are some pictures. Mark is still really sick but got some antibiotics today so hopefully is on the mend now. I will have him post some gotcha day video later. (Whoops looks like mark took mostly video of gotcha day and not many pictures. Sorry for the teaser I will make him post some video soon!!!)

What a handsome and happy looking boy! Although I do see that glimmer in his eyes that shows you will be getting a run for your money. I'm so excited and happy that you all are finally together. Will be looking forward to more pix and video. BTW I told my husband how y'all are able to post blogs across the world so now he wants a mini laptop...thank you very much and he doesn't even goes TDY much anymore!

Elaine,

He's amazing! And so beautiful/handsome - whatever the PC word its! He's also got one of the best smiles I've ever seen.

Have a wonderful time getting to know your little man.

CONGRATS! I am so happy for you and so happy for Ren! He is quite the talker! Lily misses him and says "Ren's momma bring him home" I think that Wuxi must do alot with them because her verbal skills are really great! I hope we can get the two of them together soon. We have a skype account so if you do too maybe we can let them talk online. I am SO HAPPY that your day has FINALLY come! Best wishes to you all!

My goodness...you will have your hands full. I can't wait to meet him! Tell Mark we are praying for him.
Love to all,
Erin
