China-Day...Oh whatever!

I have no idea what day it is half the time here or what day I'm supposed to be blogging about.  I will tell you the days have gotten faster and I love it much more here in Guangzhou. 

I will tell you that miracle of all miracles, despite the orphanage instructions to put Kylie on her back to sleep, she sleeps very soundly on her tummy.  We put her down last night on her tummy and she was asleep in seconds.  She went down about 9:30 and slept without a peep until almost 7am!!  PRAISE!  We all needed that rest!  So keep those prayers coming!  They are working.

Yesterday's post was about the orphanage.  That brings us up to Thursday of last week.  Unfortunately, it was rainy all day on Thursday.  Since we'd had a long day on Wednesday, we didn't start our city tour of Nanjing (the capital city of Kylie's province, Jiangsu) until later in the day.  Despite the rain, we went anyway.

The city wall goes around Nanjing and I'm sure there's a lot of other interesting stuff about it, but the rain really kicked up and it was freezing, so I didn't get much of what our guide was seeing.
So, just because I don't have anything more interesting about this day to say, I'm leaving you with the picture above of Kylie.  This was taken later, but she is such a happy baby.

Also, several of you have asked about how Jenna is doing.  I worried a lot about her on the long fight to Beijing, but she was WONDERFUL.  Never fussed or argued or complained.  And she has been way better than I could EVER ask for while here.  She stays close to me all the time (it's very crowded here) and she is SUCH a huge help.  She totes Kylie or her stuff her fair share and she is way more patient than I even am!  I have not for one milli-second regretted bringing her.  It was the best decision ever.  I'm so glad she's here.  In fact, my favorite time of day is about to happen...SLEEP!  We have a tiny bed, but we snuggle up together and it makes me less home sick.

More to come...

I am so glad Jenna is doing well! I am sure this is an amazing adventure for her!
It is amazing how good a full night of sleep can be! My it be the first of many!
Praying for these last few days in China. I know you are so ready to be home, but enjoy the time you have there!
