Joy oh Joywhi

We are happy beyond belief with our little or I should say BIG bundle of joy. We brought mainly all 12 months clothes for her and barely any of it fits her. I went out shopping today looking for clothes and man was it hard. I went to a department store but all they sold there was really heavy quilted clothes for babies. They really bundle them up good around here and its WARM! Kathyrn Robertson - if your reading any know somewhere I can shop in the Guangzou area (or anyone who is familiar with the area), I'd love to here where - IT"S CRAZY!!

Olivia has a really bad cold. She can't stop coughing and sneezing and is really congested. She was fussing alot today an my heart was just aching. I never thought that I could feel pain like this for someone else. I finally caved in about an hour ago and gave her some Tylonol for colds. I wanted to avoid medicine but I don't want to see her suffer. She also has an eye infection so really glad I brought some drops. I have to say she's a smart little bugger though. Kirk put the first drop in and she didn't know what was coming so all good. He went to put the second in and she squeezed her little eyes as tight as she could. I think we have a bright one on here :-)

Kirk and Olivia are both fast asleep now so I'm going to try and get the room somewhat back to normal........

She is a very happy baby who gives us lots of smiles and giggles. O.K on with the good stuff - more pics! As you can see only day 2 and another leafs out fit on her. It's just too adorable. It's too big but just look how darn cute she is. We had it made about a year ago and Kirk couldn't take it another minute without seeing her in it.

I'm also posting pictures of other families we are travelling with in case anyone was out there stalking for others :-)

All is good and hopefully I'll get to post again tomorrow. I just love her so much that every waking minute is spent drooling over her.

Wow Debbie,
your group's babies so much bigger than ours were. Who's your guide? Our guide walked us over to Shamian Island as the department store had very little we found. It takes about 10 minutes to walk there and even taxi is cheap. There's lots of store with North American clothes, chinese outfits and shoes. Happy shopping! How's Kirk doing with the food so far?

Hi Debbie, Kirk and Olivia

Congratulations with your daughter, Olivia. Olivia is absolutely adorable. I love her in the little skirt and barrettes! What a little lady! (I hear Samara was stronger competition than expected, barely fitting into her clothes as well :))

I've been "stalking" your blog. Karen must have told you that I needed another "fix". Seeing everyone with their babies is such an amazing sight! How exciting!

Hope Olivia is feeling better soon.

I am soooo happy for you and your new family! I guess my advise on clothes would have been way off, eh? Looks like it was a smooth transition for Olivia, thank goodness. Enjoy your daughter and her wonderful country.
