Good Wednesday morning from China!
I am taking a moment to blog while I can. John and Lydia are having some Baba and daughter time.
We were supposed to go sightseeing this morning, but John and I decided not to go. We have had a rough night with Lydia. She was restless all night (not the night before...she slept almost 11 hours straight!) and she had a fever when she woke up. I think she is teething. Her back teeth looks like they may be coming in. Poor thing. She has been very clingy and sobby since she hasn't felt too well..so we are getting extra hugs today. :)
She is attaching very well to me so we are working on attachment to Baba today. They seem to be doing pretty good. :)
I too, have been a bit under the weather. Thank goodness we brought antibotics for the both of us. It has come in handy.
Needless to say, it's been a rough one..but we have been strengthened by the Lord.
Please continue to pray for us...your prayers are MUCH appreciated. :)
Lots of hugs and love going out to you all!
ps- one week from today we will be home...we cannot wait!

Today we went to the Official Register. This is where we have several interviews, complete some more paperwork, and after all that, they pronounce our adoption "official".
We had a small ceremony and that was it. We are officially parents to Lydia!
Afterwards, we all went to Wal-Mart with our kiddos to pick up some items. Okay, I must confess this experience was quite interesting. The Wal-Mart in Nanning, China has SEVERAL floors! It was a bit overwhelming! Lydia did such a wonderful job at her first shopping experience and we are so proud of her!
Here is also a picture of the 5 families with us. We are all very happy and at this point...exhausted!
Until next time...it's nap time!
