Last night we had a major break through with Jack. He took a bath and actually enjoyed it. The first two baths were majorly traumatic. Last night we put him in, and he started to scream, but then he started to splash and play! Yah!!! We have had some better sleep experiences too. The first night that I tried to let him put himself to sleep (I was told he did this), he showed some disturbing behavior. He thrashed and hit himself in the head. I cried watching. I picked him up and walked him asleep. Last night he took me to the door and reached up. He knew I'd walk him to sleep, it was so sweet. Then at nap today I laid him down on the bed and stroked his head and he went to sleep. He now finds the food he wants brings it to us and says "um". We know what that means! He continues to eat well.
Today we went to a Jade market and a pearl factory (isn't that an oyster?). We had a good time at both. The pearl factory was on a seven floor mall, with almost all the floors being jewelry. It was like an enormous Claire's Boutique. Later in the day we went to a German resteraunt. It was actually quite good. It was strange to see German translated into Chinese. Did you know that ice tea is spelled eistee? Sometimes things get a bit lost in translation! We are having a good time, but we can't wait to get home and see everyone. We can't wait to have the boys all together!
