Pictures from Guangzhou

My boy with his favorite snack, which happens to be what he ate for lunch today as he refused all other food

Yes, we got his hair cut at the White Swan as we figured it would be easier with someone talking to him in Chinese

Mommy (aka Hello Mama) and Eli out for a walk

Pretty scenary in the White Swan Hotel

Teaching him to climb stairs, which he wants to do over and over and over

a picture from his medical appointment (man, that place was crazy!)

walking halls, trying to wear him out

Finally!! Guangzhou!!


  1. I love all of the photos. He really is a big boy. I'm praying for strength for you both and for your backs to stay healthy.

    Bless you!

  2. Hee hee we walked those same stairs and halls over and over with Jack :)

  3. Heather,
    I never tire of reading about your trip!! I stay hungry for more :-) I love the idea of a haircut while there!! I hope I can remember that tidbit!!
    All of the pictures are fabulous!! FYI, a friend I have who also stayed at the WS, said there use to be an artist very near (like next door) who would do an oil painting of your family (even those at home if you have a picture with you), and the turn-a-round time was a couple of days.
    You are on the homestretch!! Amazing :-)
    And about the doritos for lunch....nothing wrong with needing a little comfort food sometimes!!
    PS.. If I haven't already said so, Eli is just a beautiful child!!

  4. Oh I love the pics. He's so adorable. Can't wait to meet him.

  5. Heather,
    Just thought you might like to know...we found out today (Monday 3/7) that we were DTC last Thursday!!! Last night when I was watching the webcam, Joey was playing with the duplos again :-)
    Can't wait to read more about your trip!

  6. He is adorable Heather! Cannot wait to meet him!
