Today we had our civil affairs meeting and notary. Sophie did excellent for both. She is such a trooper. Little by little we are seeing her personality. She definately loves her mama!! I almost...ALMOST feel bad for the hard time she is giving Bert. She will not let me put her down and believe me I have the sore arms and back to prove it. This morning she pigged out on the breakfast buffet. Then for lunch we made her this fish/vegetable cereal mix..and for dinner we had tex-mex. So far in China we have had Pizza Hut, Mcdonalds and tonight it was chicken fingers and fries for me and filet mignon for Bert. We would like to eat more provincial food but the smoking and spitting hockers can get to you. Sophie had mac n cheese tonight and she loved it. I also let her have a little of my coke light, she loved that too...obvious by the HUGE burp she let lose!(Elizabeth would have been so proud!).
We also went to the brand new Super Wal-mart store here in Chengdu...that was very cool. Tonight our friend Monica and her daughter Alana came and picked us up at the hotel for the tex-mex dinner. Monica is the angel that sent us the pictures of Sophie back in July. She works at the US consulate/embassy here in Chengdu. Her daughter "angel baby" is a gem and she gave Sophie alot of hugs and kisses! Sophie really likes other children. I cant wait to see her with her siblings. She is now fast asleep from our busy day...and I am right behind her!
