We're in Guangzhou City!

Last night we flew from Nanning to Guangzhou. It was about an hour long flight, and Jack was as happy as a clam (how do we know clams are happy?) He ate the whole time! He had crackers, cookies, rice bars ect. ect. We were told he had no appetite???? Perhaps we got the wrong child. He is already a different kid. He is fun and playful. He wants to walk now and is getting better at it. He's also infatuated with stairs. He likes to go up and down them. He needs some help, but boy he's doing better.

We are now at the White Swan Hotel. It is so beautiful. They have a great playroom for the kids and the breakfast was amazing. Guangzhou is a very big city with lots of shopping (we can't wait!!!) We are very happy to be here!

This morning we took Jack for the "medical exam" (notice everything relating to medicine here is in quotes). They looked him over, looked in his ears (again we were told he has wax!), they weighed and measured him, and handed us some papers. We did find out he has gained around a pound. We are up to 18 lbs and we think about 29 inches? We had to convert everything, so not sure how accurate the inches are.

We also compleed all the rest of our paperwork and payed the rest of our fees. Yah!! Glad to have all that done.

PS - Nona/Mom, we added comments for you both on the last (BaCall's) post.

Hi Guys!
We are following your adventures very closely and can't wait to meet Jack! I do have one request - a good pic of Shannon & Jack. Preferably one showing more than her shoulder or legs :) I am working on a little "project" and I don't want it to be all Daddy. We are all anxiously waiting for you to get home! See you soon!

We can also use some rice cereal (baby kind), and some various stage 2 or 3 baby foods. He loves banana. We've been mixing those and that's what he wants in the morning.

White light up monster trucks hum, I sense a theme here... Why does he always choose the dorky pair??? Ah well, at least he's happy!!!

Jack is so incredibly cute. First thing every morning I turn on the blog to read about your "adventures" and see pictures of Jack. I can't wait to see him and hold him. He is going to be so good with his brothers and the neighborhood kids.
I miss you guys. Love Mom
