Thought I would do a quick post while Bri was trying to put Lucy to sleep for her afternoon nap. Her second night wasn't quite as peaceful as her first. She woke up twice throughout the night, but did fine after she was fed. She had a great breakfast both in our room and at the breakfast buffet. She really likes eggs and congee (a warm rice liquid cereal/soup…not my favorite, but very popular here). I also let her try a little of my pancake… of course she liked that. It is very interesting at breakfast because probably every other table is a Caucasian couple with an Asian baby. It is nice to talk to them and meet their children.
Then we had quite an adventure at Wal-Mart. Lucy did so well and really seems to enjoy all the hustle and bustle. And let me tell you, the hustle and bustle and noise and crowd at Wal-Mart was unlike anything I had ever seen. I took video because I don't think you could believe it without seeing it. And some of the meats and fish and produce…well, words can't describe. Let's just say that I don't think their way of doing things would ever pass FDA regulations. We met a nice couple from Seattle while shopping. We have realized that Lucy is very small for her age. Every other baby we have met, their child is younger, yet bigger than Lucy. Not sure if she is actually younger than they told us (sometimes they estimate birthdays wrong) or if she just has small biological parents. Lucy eventually ended up conking out on us at Wal-Mart. It seems that it is easier for her to sleep with noise than the quiet of our room. I will try to post more later….
