Thanks for all your encouraging words. I am up early now reading comments and Carlton is sleeping next to that little bundle of love. When he wakes up, I will make sure he reads all these comments. I think it will help him.
Just wanted to write a little about last night...
We got back to our room and we were exhausted. We ordered some dumplings and rice (room service). By the way, it was $4.00. ???? Lily gobbled down about half of our order. I just had to stop her and take the food away. No belly ache as of yet. OK, so anyway...last night, I put her in the bath and made lots of bubbles. (she is amazed at bubbles). She started jabbering like you wouldn't believe. Of course, I had no clue what she was saying. It was all chinese!!!!!!!!!!!! I would imitate her Chinese and she would bust out laughing. Look, I know I am not good at my chinese, but now my own daughter is laughing at me! (the honesty of kids!) So, then, in order for her to get more soap squirted on her hands, I would make her say something. She repeated almost everything I said....she said, "toes, soap, please, mama, baba, wo ai ni, boodie, and the best words of all.....she said, "ROLL TIDE!!!"
Carlton was sitting in the room at the computer while I was giving her a bath and I poked my head out the door and screamed, "Did you hear that????" Well, sweet daddy, was just a cryin'. I said, "what is it?" He told me he was just so happy and so thankful that God had allowed us this amazing opportunity and he loved just hearing us laugh and talk together. I was so happy he said this, because really, I thought he was crying happy tears because she said Roll Tide. :)
Well, I am off to pack up our things.
OK, I am in need of YOUR help. For all you "been there, done that" families....can you please tell me where to shop and what things I should buy??? HELP!!! Please help me!!!! I don't want to forget something!!!
I already have: pearls and cloisonne. Thats really it.
Oh, Lily's head just popped up. gotta go
