This update is going to be quick because I need to get out and get some lunch. I have barely eaten a meal since we got here.
We are now in Guangzhou and have done the first part of making Kylie ours forever. I promise I will get some blogs up...maybe this afternoon.
The night after my last post was better. She whimpered several times in the night but I learned that I could just reach through the slats on my bed and pat her and she'd go right back to sleep. I think we got about 7 hours of sleep.
Then yesterday, we left the hotel at 2pm and boarded the plane to Guangzhou. That flight wasn't too bad. She cried just a bit. But by the time we landed, got through the airport, retrieved our luggage, walked 9 miles to our bus, picked up a bunch of other families, got to the hotel and checked in, it was way past her bedtime, past her eating time etc. She had already fallen asleep but I changed her clothes, her diaper and fed her a bottle.
Then the real fun began. She screamed off and on the ENTIRE NIGHT. Now she will not be put down EVER. We borrowed a stroller from the hotel this morning and she screamed bloody murder. It appears that for her to sleep we'll have to take shifts holding her. She won't lay down in bed with me and the beds here are not nearly big enough.
There were tons of emails and comments from my last post and I can't tell you how much they help. I have allowed Deanne (my sister in law) to help. In fact, she got up almost every time last night to try and get Kylie back to sleep.
I'm not as exhausted, but I sure am ready for the hard part to be over (and yes, I know we are only at the beginning).
More later...I promise.
