One more day and we are heading home!!!





Yesterday was a big  day for paperwork at the American Consulate. All of our paperwork was in-order and we have our oath appointment today. Lilymei will get her Visa to enter the US also today. The group had the famous "red couch" photo taken and of course Lilymei didn't smile until it was all over. We have done some shopping and finding gifts to remember the trip. Lily is really making progress and is finally drinking from a sippy cup on her own. She is also starting to stand a little more on her own while holding onto something.

We are all excited about coming home tomorrow and getting back to a normal routine. Not that eating a gourmet breakfast buffet every morning and having someone clean your room is not routine, but...it is time for reality again. 

Hopefully everyone is enjoying the photos, it has been harder to post from Guangzhou than it was in Hohhot. We seem to be much busier here with the baby. Nate just stated that he is bored "watching a monkey and dog cook a meal on tv, is that what life has come to?" TV is less than quality here.
