Very serious, not sure what she's pointing at . . . Cheerios!! We had to keep em coming or she grunted and lunged at the bag =)
Mali, myself & two of her Bao'an nannies/staff members. The woman on the left spoke very good English & was quick to make sure I knew what things to be attentive to (like the baby's temperature). I then removed her jacket as she was dripping sweat. More Cheerios. Big belly!
We made it back to the hotel & Mali was exhausted. She fought sleep the whole way home. We kept her awake long enough for Dr. Jerry to visit & check her over. She got an A+! She weighs 22 lbs, and has a slight cough. She really only cried when we took her clothes off & Dr Jerry was poking around. She totally was not in the mood for the exam. She wouldn't take her bottle at all, but he said that's all good for today. While she was crying, she vomited several times. My superhero reflexes caught the first load in one of her stacking cups. After that, it wasn't so easy. There was puke on Grammy's bed, in Mali's bed and all over me. Most of it was loads of green snot (sorry!), the rest was oranges (she must've eaten them on the way over b/c we didn't give em to her). I suppose it was just a combination of her being so tired & having such a long, emotional day. Mali's sleeping now, very soundly in her crib. She has a cute way of kicking her leg up into the air when she sleeps. Grammie just reminded me that her personality report from the orphanage said she enjoys 'kicking her crab.' Now I get it . . .they must've meant 'crib.'
This is it for today - gotta go shower. I'm exhausted, sticky (well a little crusty now), and I probably stink . . . but it feels wonderful =)Crashed out. ** GOTCHA pics taken by our wonderful group pediatrician - Dr. Jerry from Alaska!! ** (Thanks Uncle Jerry!!)
