We made our first flight with A.C. She did well on the flight but did not sleep. We might be in for a loooong flight home! She continues to get stronger and shows us new things every day. Yesterday, we went to the clinic to have her medical done. She weighs 16.2 pounds and is 28 inches long. She is a healthy girl and a happy baby! We went shopping yesterday after naptime and bought several outfits and shoes. The pair of shoes she has on in this picture are the famous "squeaky shoes". The great thing is the squeakers are removable! Addison is now pulling up and can occasionally get a cheerio in her mouth. She continues to love her bath at night. She does not have the appetite that some of the other babies in our group have. Dinner seems to be her best meal. Conjee continues to be her favorite food with carrots coming in second place. She did eat some oatmeal this morning. We tried scrambled eggs but she didn't care for them. She continues to sleep through the night and wakes up happy each day! The weather in Guangzhou is very rainy so it has been difficult to get out. There is a typhoon nearby and we are getting the rain from it. Our zoo trip for this afternoon has been cancelled but we will be taking the babies to the Mattel play room called The Swan Room to play. We are loving parenthood and continue to thank God for our beautiful daughter each day!

Hey guys - She is so cute in the hat. We love the pic with Nik giving her a bottle. He looks like a natural. We can't wait to get to meet AC and give her a huge hug. Love you and we'll be praying for you & safe travels home. Lynn & Chris

HI Nik, Donna & Addiso Claire!

We just looked at the new video and read your message. The pictures are gogeous! We are really getting excited now, since the time is getting really short.
I read on the internet about the storm over there, seems like a lot
of flooding. I talked to Granny Nan and she is planning on riding down to Mobile with us. We are planning to leave around mid-afternoon and go by your house for a short rest and then go and eat before we head for the airport. we love ya'll and will be checking
the blog for more info.

Love Papaw & Mamaw

Enjoyed these latest pictures...they certainly have become addictive...will be so glad when I can just drive a few miles and see ya'll in person. Hope the typhoon stays away. Looks like Nik figured out the baby carrier gizmo YEA NIK! We are anxiously awaiting your return home...not to worry God is in control of everything and He is faithful. Love, Mama
