We are on the last stretch of our stay here in China. Tonight we had the "Good Bye China" Party complete with Peking Duck, cake, a little show. It is a bit of a bittersweet good bye. I can hardly wait to go home and yet I know that in a few months I will wish that I could go back to China for just a few days.
Jackson continues to slowly come out of his shell. He is beginning to babble and giggle in the hotel hallways and fusses when we go shopping. He is trying to communicate his needs more and has become very good at pointing and taking my hand, indicating what he wants. He has said a few words...car, mama, pee, poop, and more...all the essential words at this point! lol! He is even beginning to smile at others in our group. He loves anything with wheels and discovered the "lift the flap" book I had been saving for on the flight home. I know he'll love it as it has all kinds of interesting vehicles in it.
I have been trying to rock him to sleep each night and at nap, but most days he prefers to be put in the crib. If I'm lucky he'll cuddle for a bit and sometimes even dose off.
Our flight leaves around 4pm, Beijing time, tomorrow afternoon. There are 3 other couples on this flight as well, so it could be an interesting flight. Could you pray that all the babies/kids travel well, sleep well, that the flights are on schedule, and that us adults get some much needed sleep as well....thanks!
I arrive home at 11:40pm...late, I know, but that's in about 40 hrs...can't wait!! :)
