Happy to be home!

We're a little sleep deprived but we are happy to be home!


Our last night in China, we went to a nice Italian restaurant in our hotel - the food was great and it was nice to be out just the 4 of us for a change.

The next morning we walked the 3 blocks to Tienanmen square. It was a great place to be that morning with all the noise and people. The perfect place to say goodbye to China.



The 13.5 hour flight to Toronto was loooooooong! I was glad to finally get off that plane! The 45 minute plane ride to Montreal was nothing in comparison!


We are still somewhat jet lagged but it is getting better every day. Naomi has changed since we've been home. She's a very busy 9 month old. She loves to move and to play. She loves the cat and says kikki (for kitty) she also says mama and Baba and GeGe (for Francis). She loves to eat and we finally got her taking formula in a bottle (whoohoo). She now loves the bath and she even slept through the night last night!

Yesterday my brother and his girlfriend came over to meet Naomi and to introduce me to his new son (my first and only nephew). Naomi was quite interested in looking at the baby!
