It has been a while since I posted. Jeannie has discovered the computer and now it is very difficult to get it away from her. They are both in bed now ( it is 9:00 p.m. here )
We have had a very quiet last few days. We have spent most of our time in the room playing.
The girls are still getting along great. The only time Jeannie has cried is when Gia landed on her head when they were jumping on the bed. Our biggest problem still is Gia's jealousy. It doesn't seem to matter how many times we reassure her, she still has melt downs whenever we give any type of attention/affection to Jeannie.
Tonight we went to dinner at a restaurant next to the hotel. It has over 100 items to choose from. There are pictures of all of the dishes, and you can pick what you want. There are whole ducks ( head and all ), bulls balls soup, and I could go on. It is quite interesting, however the food is great and very inexpensive. An order of fried noodles is less than $1.00
The best part of the night was when Gia told Jeannie to quiet down, and Jeannie spit in her face!
Spitting is acceptable in China. This is just one of the many "manners" things we need to work on!
It has been raining or misting for the past 2 days. Today our guide took us to a beautiful park, but the views were limited due to fog and mist. The biggest excitement was when the girls needed to use the rest room, and it was a "squatty" potty. Most have a hole in the ground to squat over, but this one just had a trench that they needed to position themselves over. I got a couple of good photo's, however I won't post them here! Gia was not happy!
Tomorrow night we leave for Guangzhou. It is a one hour flight, and the first for Jeannie. It will be nice to meet up with some other families that we met earlier in the week. 5 nights there and then home!
It is bedtime, and you can hear all of the babies crying. The floor we are on in this hotel is mainly for adoptive families. You can walk up and down the isle, and hear crying from several rooms. We feel so bad for the parents and babies, and very happy for us. Our only problem is that the girls giggle and whisper, then get up to go "o-now" (potty) a few times.
Of note, the photo's that I have been posting are cutting off the right hand side - I am not sure how to fix this. Just wanted you to know that I really am not that bad of a photographer!
Goodnight from Nanning,
Bob, Theresa, Gia and Jeannie
