Medical appointment

Today was the medical exam. Naomi was a real trouper and didn't cry. On the Chinese charts she is at 50% for height and 8% for weight. We have to fatten her up a bit. I think some good nutrition will go a long way. I have had some success with the formula by mixing it in to her baby food - especially into baby cereal. She weighs 7.2 kgs and she is 71 cm tall.

The Circus was cancelled because a bunch of people in our group are sick. Francis got it but he is ok now. Glad I brought the Gravol and Pedialite!

Tomorrow is Tian 'an men and the Forbidden City!

What a little sweetie! Glad to hear she's beginning to eat a little more. I'm guessing that's one of the first big challenges that we face with our precious little ones...finding out how to feed them properly. She is just too cute! Look at that adorable little smile while she's being weighed.

Glad to hear Francis is feeling better and praying mommy and daddy don't get it.

Love ya friends! Thank you for sharing this wonderful time with us!

Glad that the medical exam went smoothly, happy that Francis is feeling better. I caught up on all your activities these past few days looks like you have had some interesting adventures, the lost in translation was funny. Your baby carrier looks really comfy I am looking them up on line I think I might invest in one of them for our trip.
