Shopping Day

We had a free day so we did a little shopping on the island and then we ventured off the island to a street market. I am sure Jim will share lots of pictures of crazy things, like dried lizards on a stick, yummy.  It was quite a day.

Tomorrow we start our journey home.  We get Chloe's visa and we head to Hong Kong for the night.  Then we catch an early morning flight back home.  We have enjoyed China but we are ready to come home.  I can't wait to get Chloe into a routine that is not centered around meetings and sight seeing.  Tonight she really opened up, she crawled around the room while we packed some things up and discovered the mirror.  She found that incredibly amusing.  She would talk and laugh at herself it was too cute.

Andy (the other father in our little group) calls Chloe a gremlin and I think he might be right :).  She has a little gremlin voice sometimes and tonight she tried to rip the mattress out of her crib before going to sleep.  She was laughing and giggling the whole time.  She cracks us up, it is so hard to stay quite while she is in her bed because she is such a clown.

Cora,
She is so adorable!!! It is so great that you get sleep now. T-minus 2 days until we get to meet her! I'm sure you will feel like kissing the ground when you get home. Love you lots, safe travels.
Your sis,
Molly

A girl can never have too many shoes! ....especially squeaky ones! ;)

How many times a day do you kiss those cheeks and stare into those BIG brown eyes?

Love and blessings,
Robin

Dear Cora,
I love the colors of the shoes you picked and of course I love all the pictures of Chloe, as always! It is such a relief to read that she is turning out to be quite the clown... sounds like she's getting quite accustomed to bossing the two of you around as well. I suppose you will only read this when you get home so: WELCOME HOME FAMILY OF THREE! (I do hope you have the courage to continue the blog, I'd love to read all about how it continues from here), kindest regards, Jade

What a cute little Gremilin!! Love the gorgeous color of Squeaky shoes!!! Enjoy your trip home and Hong Kong. We loved it there. The Marriot is lovely next to the Airport if that is where you are staying.
Safe travel and see you on the other side!
Hugs,
Jody

Sweet Chloe's personality is coming out...watch out!!! I see such a change in her from the first pics to now. Isn't it wonderful what a lot of loving does to a person. Please try to find time when you get home to keep your blog updated. I will have withdraws if you don't. Dennis doesn't like me when I have withdraws, he says I turn MEAN! Have a safe trip home. Hope to meet Chloe in person when the time is right. Lots of love to all three of you.
