WE played in the lobby, in the hall, took a walk, bought some lolly pops, had some coffee and now we are back in our room. Little josh is upset because I want him to take a nap. I'll tell ya - I actually am happy to see a little fight come into him! He has been so easy to put to sleep and to feed etc. for the past two days. And today marks the first day of the rest of our lives!! ha ha ha
At breakfast he threw my full cup of coffee all over the table... so we left. At lunch, he was eating his Quiche so well and all of a sudden...from out of no where...he tossed his plate like a Frisbee and there is went! ha ha ha. Oh mY!! And now he is pitching a fit because I am making him nap! He is tired...I can see it in his eyes.....and in his behaviour....but today.....unlike the past few days....he is not going to take this lying down!! :)
Dear Boy!!! He'll settle in soon!! but I am here to report that he is a very normal 2 year old boy!! And you all know me....I certainly don't let crazy behaviour or crying affect me! ha ha ha...if I did that - I'd be one sad puppy most every day! ha ha ha!! :) I just love seeing that he is no different than any other 21 month old little man! He is going to fit in so well at home!!
He does feel a bit better today - some fever, but not as hot? Maybe it is on the down side! Whoo hoo...here's to hoping!! If not, I have been offered some meds from a nice family that is traveling with me, and if I don't see improvement each day, then I'll give him whatever I can beg borrown or steal!!! :)
So here are a few pics from our day!
there are two pics of the 4! It is the Chinese version of 7-11. It is a convenience store that sells crazy stuff - some small food items just like 7-11, but also whisky, and other liquors and other things that just would not fly in the US! But a convenient store just the same! I am not sure what I bought josh to drink...but it is white...tastes nothing like Milk....but came in a very kid friendly container...so it must be for kids right. And...he really likes it! That's what important?!
When discussing the fact that the store was called -4- one of the girls on the hall said - yeah....11-7=4 ....That's why I bet!! ha ha ha.....In truth - we have no idea why it is called -4-, but I think that Sarah's explanation is as good as any!! :) It makes me laugh every time I repeat it!!! ha ha ha
One of the husbands went to get his hair cut today at a local salon. He is military, so you can just imagine that he has hair like Steve....very very short. Well they washed his head, cut his hair, washed his head AGAIN...then blow dried his HEAD and it all cost them 2 American dollars. And to top it all off....he tried to give them a tip...and they refused to take it! ha hah ......So there are some benefits to China life! I may go get my hair cut tomorrow? It needs it - and for 2 bucks...now may be the time!
sorry about the valintines day slide show! Didn't realize it had that in it till I had already uploaded - too lazy to go back and start over!! he ehee
So josh just fell asleep and here I sit. Back to my book since you all are sleeping!! :) Catch ya tomorrow!! Sending huge hugs and lots of kisses! Can't wait to get home!
