I can't believe that our time here in China is about done!! It has been an exhausting, difficult, yet wonderful trip!!
Our precious JWH has come a long way in the last 10 days... He is picking up some English, still loves to sing all his children's songs in Chinese (one about a rabbit, another about finding lost money, and apparently twinkle twinkle??), and seems to be having less tantrums (although he is still *very* determined... pretty sure he has never heard 'no' before. Trying to say yes lots and meet lots of needs but there are just some things that are a no). He LOVES face timing with his Baba, chatters incessantly when he sees him, was beyond thrilled when I gave him his very own, brand new Chinese silks (was VERY upset when we took them off - he wanted to make sure he got to keep them so he put them straight in his bed with all of his other belongings... something totally new to him, to have things that are his own), and can't get enough of the swing (oh to be home where it is not so hot & humid so that we can swing for more than 5 minutes before being soaked in sweat!).
We fly out in the morning, have to be downstairs ready to go at 6:30 Friday morning China time and are scheduled to land at home at 10 Saturday morning China time, 28hrs later... Gulp... Really grateful for prayers!!!
And now a few pics:
