Henry helped me dry some laundry this afternoon.
We've enjoyed a steady stream of reports from Cuyahoga Falls keeping us updated on Lincoln and Lydia. They're sleeping longer than usual, and hopefully that will continue. Also, it is our understanding that Lincoln is telling everyone who will listen why when it is daytime at home it must be nighttime in China because the sun can't shine on both sides of the world at the same time. We'd expect nothing less of him! And Lydia is still getting stares and compliments on her beautiful eyes, and is no less of a chatterbox. We're unmeasurably grateful for each of our parents for caring for them in our absence. We're not sure how Henry would be part of our family without good family at home to care for L&L.
And Grandma Gates is back in NE Ohio after wintering in Charlotte, and just in time to catch Ella through town, and to spend some bonus time with L&L, and to see Henry soon after our arrival. We're looking forward to seeing her again.
On our final evening in China, we enjoyed a Chinese dinner with three of our friends, the families from Minnesota, Kansas and Illinois. As I mentioned in my previous post, we've all got a neat connection now, and because we're all bloggers, it'll be neat to watch each of our Asian Additions grow up. They all left kids at home, as well, and we're all itching to see our other kids soon.
