First success of the day was our first and second dirty diaper! Boy were they good ones too! All she eats is rice cereal and formula so it is no wonder it took a couple days. We have tried other foods but she had not had anything like that before so having texture in her mouth is not something she likes yet. I am sure in no time she will be eating like a champ but for now we are just trying to keep things the same for her. So much has already changed in her little life.
I know people have said that babies in China like their bottles hot but I never imagined I would be giving a bottle to a baby that was this hot. I almost need a cardboard sleeve like they give you at Starbucks for her bottle. She loves it, they instantly make her sweat but she drinks a hot bottle in about 60 seconds if she is serious. The orphanage director said to make them like lava in consistency and she likes them the temperature of lava too. So we have started calling her bottles, lava bottles. And Jim is the master bottle maker, he has it down.
Night time has been our issue. The crib that we have in the room is just like the one that she was sleeping in and she is having none of that. We will get there, but for now I have to finish this post with a sleeping baby in my arms.
