Day three as a family...

We're slowly getting to know Esther, her likes and dislikes. She is a great sleeper so far, last night she slept from 8pm to 8am and we had to wake her up again. Tonight she went to bed at 8:30pm and hopefully she'll sleep through the night again. She sleeps more than me (Huddle)!!! And if anyone knows me they know I love to sleep. So far she will only take formula, no other food...but she seems pretty content with that so I'm not too worried. We were very excited today because she had her first poop! Don't want to go into too much detail but she was happier after she did it. Tonight she was a little fussy, but I think it's because she is teething. By the way, she has four teeth (two upper, two lower). She let me brush them today, but wasn't very happy about it. She crawls really well (and very fast), so she keeps us on our toes. She also loves to walk with us holding her hands, although she is a little wobbly. Today we got her to smile a lot, but it's hard to catch on film. We'll keep trying though because she has beautiful dimples.

Today we went to the Minority Museum. Guangxi has about 40 different minority groups. After the museum we went outside to a park where they had some traditional dancing. These three girls performed and were kind enough to let us take a picture with them. They were gorgeous and very friendly...their English was much better than our Chinese! It's really warm here, lots of palm trees and flowers. It was 70 something degrees today.

If you want to check out a video of Esther go to Gene's sight ("inner thinkings of an idjit"). There is a link from this blog.

We're glad to have more photos. I cropped the other ones and made them into wallet sized pictures. Now we can show her off. Will check out the video. Suzi
