Final post from China

This is the last posting from China. We leave for home tomorrow morning, early. We are looking forward to getting home and seeing everyone. But, first we need to pack. We have lots of suitcases that we're coming home with- gained two in China.

Ava is doing really well. She has already gained about a 1.5 lbs. We both have colds and I shalso have a cough so hoping the flight tomorrow isn't too painful. It will be a really long day.

Ava is sitting up much better and seems so much stronger in just 10 days. She sleeps from about 8 p.m. to about 7 a.m. and takes two short naps throughout the day. She is a good little shopper, especially when she is carried.

Debi- can you pick up some baby food. Carrots, sweet potatoes and some fruit. Also, some bananas. That is about all she is eating.

We can't wait to see you guys tomorrow!

I can't believe you guys are coming home already tomorrow. The week has really gotten away from me. I love all your pictures. Your going to have the best scrapbook! I'm sorry to hear that you both have colds. I feel your pain--please let me know if I can help you in any way when you get home O.K. I hope the flight goes well. Congratulations!!!
