Loving Parenthood!
















We are all doing well and feeling blessed beyond belief. Grace is keeping us on our toes. She is such a happy baby. However she does like to wake us up in the middle of the night :0) Her Baba does a great job of getting her back to sleep, though. She loves to snuggle up with him. I never thought we would be glad to go to sleep at 9 pm. On Monday we officially became Grace's Mama and Baba. YEAH!!! We applied for her passport yesterday and went to Yuexiu park, it was beautiful. Guangzhou is so nice the weather has been great and it is so lush and green here. We went to the grocery store on Monday. That was quite the experience. It was 3 stories and had a little bit of everything. We found the Starbuck's!! Which is a good thing cause mama needed Java bad!! We have been a couple times. It's is a little different then the Starbucks back home. They have much better deserts! We have done a little shopping and we are going to do some more this afternoon. Tomorrow we are going to the Chen Clan Temple and Friday we are going to the zoo. Grace is breaking another tooth. So hopefully it will pop thru before we head home. Hope everyone is well. We will post again soon. Here are some more pictures. Stay tuned.....
