Good Morning Beijing!

At 3:30AM Beijing Time - the Empress decided to arise and since she requires her coutiers be in attendance at all times - Mama & Baba were up too! Actually works out kinda ok - since we really needed to be down to breakfast buffet early so we can meet others and get on the bus at 8:00 am - we are still waiting for certain things to, uh.. happen for her highness and I am hoping being up that early with speed things on (IYKWIM) We were quite tired but managing and it will be interesting to see what happens tonight! We ate leaisurely breakfast and the bacon and sausage were going like gangbusters! I don't know where she puts it all. I am already tired of eggs! Would love a bagel with a smear and some fishy but - whatever! Shortly we will be off to Great Wall then Lunch then Ming Tombs.. we will not return till much later.. but I will try to post more and a few pics. I am having a LOT of trouble posting from here and can't even post to my yahoo groups... so if any of my buddies are reading this - if you could just say hi to all and let them know we are OK - I will send updates when I can.

Word of the day: Sleep! ( for those who have been where I am - the word is really poop!)

I am so glad you are blogging your journey, how lucky you are able to go back to China and share all of this with your daughter! I hope you don't mind me following along?

P.S., I'm interested to see how EFP does after her brother is in the picture.....Amelia had a really hard time when we adopted Jack

The Empress and her court are in China! I am following along with your every move!

EFP looks like an upside down world traveler to me! And I so get the Dora on Demand! :)

Cheering you on!

You may want to try to find some Gerber or Beech Nut pear juice to help EFP to move things along! It works for my Empress!

Poor EFP. Emily had the same trouble in China following all of the sitting. What worked for us was A LOT of bottled water and lots of walking and some tummy massage. It is amazing what jet lag and a bit of stress does on their little bodies.

Love and hugs,
Michele, Em, and Alyssa

It is so amazing to see you all in China together - can't wait to see the pics with your son! Been thinking about you all like crazy. Hope Empress feels better very soon!

I'll call you once you get Bo and are settled in. Sending our love around the world - as Evan would say, "Did you catch my kiss?" Hope so. Hugs galore to you all.

Scott, Kristen, Evan and Abby
