Another great day! Today we attempted to go to church, however our laundry delivery came too late, and Lydia was napping. After the nap we went to the Chen Museum and shopping. Lydia loves being outside and took a great nap in her stroller so mommy could shop for pearls. She has relaxed and finally feels safe enough that we don't have hlod her 24/7. She is content to sit on the bed and play with her toys from time to time. Have I mentioned what a great daddy Mark is? He is so good with Lydia and actually more patient than I am.
The photos are from our walk around the hotel, and the bed in the photo is from the museum. The bed has large white porcelean blocks that were the pillows! I especially love the bamboo scaffolding that construction workers were using.
Tomorrow is our Consulate appointment, and we must be in our room to answer any questions that may arise. Then on Tuesday afternoon we go for our ceremony. Lydia continues to blossom each day and is sitting up and rolling over! She especially loves to stand while we hold her. She also ate some congee and potato soup today. Still no fruit or juice. We are looking forward to spending much of tomorrow on Shamain Island. We love reading the encouraging words. We are having her dedicated this Sunday so we hope everyone than can will be there to help us celebrate this incredible gift. ~ Cindy
