China Day 4

Praise God Brad and I slept through the night for the first time. We woke up at 5:45 am finally feeling rested. I showered early because I knew Olivia would be upset if I showered when she was awake. Baby girl slept until 8:30 in her crib for 13 hours. We can only hope this continues at home. When I went in to get her she was not happy that it was my face and not her nanny's but the tears were short lived and she calmed down with milk and Cheerios. We Skyped her cousins Eden and Julia as well as Oma. She slept too late to Skype Brooks and Ky.
We enjoyed a leisurely breakfast where she got off my lap and actually sat in a high steps. Then we walked around the gardens and played in the room. Olivia much prefers to be outside.

We met our guide for a Dim Sum lunch at a local place before heading to the medical exam. Lunch was delicious. It's so nice having the guide order for us because I was very nervous about the food in China. Olivia slept in the ergo during the whole meal.

At the medical exam she had her temp taken, her ears checked and and her weight and height assessed. Tiny thing is just under 17 lbs at 14 mos. I doubt she is even on the US growth chart.


  1. Glad you guys were able to get some rest! Her outfit is just adorable!

  2. Brad and Caitlin - I'm glued to these updates. I'm not a big fan of the reality TV shows, but this is awesome stuff. Thanks for letting us be a part of this incredible journey with you guys.
