Today we had to be up and ready to shop at the jade store and pearl market! Mia woke up around 7am and was hungry as usual. As we made her bottle she munched on her very favorite Cheerios ~ I don't know what I would do without them. If Mia isn't sleeping, she is eating - and she gets testy if she doesn't get what she wants!!
Mia is up and dressed for the day with her dolly
and thumb! (This is the doll from the care package!!)
Love my Cheerios...no, really I LOVE them!
We enjoyed our outing and bought some real nice pieces ~ we got some Pappa John's pizza to bring back to the hotel when we were done shopping. We walked around and hung out with our buddies, Michelle, David and Lia and had a great time as usual! It is so nice to have made such great friends and we cannot believe we met only a week ago!
Then, we brought the girls to the Swan Room again to play. Mia just has a blast. It is so nice to see her so happy. I wonder all the time what her life was before us. I don't think she has ever seen a rug, as she is fasinated by them and when the tile turns to rug as she is walking, she has to squat down and lift her foot "over" onto the rug - it is so funny! She also touches and feels everything as if it is the first time!
Found the ball again!
She lights up the room!
We met for a group dinner again at a Cantonese Restaurant. We took up two tables, as we are 9 families. Mia had her staple: congee! I better learn how to make this because she just adores it! I hope she likes pastina (my Italian friends know of this dish) because I am a pro at that....but congee - oh boy!
Daddy, Mia and Mommy at the restaurant
(Daddy tried duck ~ don't tell Madison!)
I turned to look at Mia and she had
fallen asleep - too much shopping?!
We left shortly after and returned to
the hotel; however, Miss Mia is talking
and joking in her crib as I type?!
*Anthony and Eddie: I hope you are having a good weekend. We are so busy here with your sister, but think about you ALL the time: what you are doing and where you are at that moment. I miss you both so much I can't stand it! You boys are just the best, funniest, cutest, sweetest guys around and you are going to have a ball with your sister! I am blowing you kisses 1/2 way around the world at this moment...catch them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
