I just had to add a few more photos from last night just because Jorja looks so cute!
After a fun dinner at The Cow Bridge we were walking back to the hotel with some other families. One of the local store keeps stopped us and we stayed to chat for a while. The poor merchants are really hurting! Two years ago, the hotels were packed, the breakfast buffet was crazy busy - but now, this place is empty. Including our group there are only 12 families who are here adopting. It is amazing and so sad to think of all the kids who could be going home to their forever families, but because of government red tape - they still sit waiting!
Okay, enough of my soap box!
Here are the cute photos!
"Pleeeeze Baba!" We are still working over Baba for one of these coats for Jorja and Jailyn - if you would like to post your comment on how cute Jorja looks, this might help our cause! :) Jorja has become quite the shopper. When we first walked into this store last night - she went right to the shoes and began pushing them to see if they were squeaky shoes. :) Bryan was not very excited about that! Jorja is going to have a problem when we get home and her shoe bucket has much less then Jailyn's! We may have to remedy that fairly quickly!
Today we are off to the zoo and to a local shopping mall. The zoo should be fun - but Bryan has the same adverse reaction to shopping in China as he does at home! He gets grumpy! :)
Oh, another funny story.
Jorja is mostly potty trained, but we have pull-ups for her since we are still working on the whole language/trust thing. She gets very upset when she has an accident. Anyway, until last Monday she had never seen a western toilet. Well, by Wednesday, she would not even step foot in a squatty potty. Last night at the restaurant she had to go, so I took her (knowing she wasn't going to go), sure enough - she turns up her nose and shakes her head "no." I think Jorja is ready to go home too! She is cherishing the photos that I sent her last year. Now that she knows who we are - she loves looking through the album. Last night she fell asleep holding it! Kids Jorja is so excited to meet and play with y'all!
4 more sleeps!!!
