Avery continues to amaze us and delight us!!!
Today was a very fun and happy day! It was filled with laughter and giggles!!! I think she is really enjoying getting to know us just as much as we enjoy getting to know her! She and Faith had a wonderful bonding day. Avery went for a walk outside with Faith, and they even 'ran a couple of errands together'. Avery seems to be warming up to Dave.....kind of.....the going is a little slower with him......but, at least she gave him a hug today!
Yes, she is giving out hugs!!! No kisses yet, but lots of hugs!!!
She is now saying 'hello' to everyone. She is saying 'up' & 'down', 'bye-bye',' uh-oh', and she actually called me momma today!! She taught us how to say jello in Chinese!! A very important word since this seems to be her favorite food! She was skipping today....this was incredibly sweet!!! I took it as a sign of her being very happy & content! And, she was singing to me all day...I'm not sure what she was singing.....however, her voice was very tender & loving!
We went to the police station to take our family photo for our adoption certificate and we also applied for Avery's passport today. Tomorrow we go to the "Physical Examination Center". Avery will get her required exam and several vaccinations as well as a TB test. Please pray that all goes well. This is never a fun 'outing' both for parent & child, especially the child!!!
Now on to the pictures!!!!
First, a few pictures from yesterday.....(day 2)
Goofing around at the local park and blowing bubbles!!
All squeaky clean after I gave her a bath!! (day 2)
Here is the cutest picture of bed head ever!!! (day 3)
A visit to the White Swan Hotel. This is where we stayed when we adopted Shea.
After lunch and a (very short) nap, we went to another park on the island!
Avery really seemed to like the red lanterns hanging from the trees. This is in preparation for the Chinese New Year.
Note to self:
POST WHEN THE INTERNET IS WORKING!!!!!!!

Dave has left today to fly home! Please keep him in your prayers as he travels....alone!
