Bryan Jinhua (we are still using both names until he gets used to Bryan - then we will just use Jinhua when he is in trouble/we get formal - since it is his new middle name)
woke up HAPPY AGAIN!!
(That is FOUR days in a row if you are counting!)
AND he just went to bed...
NOT crying or screaming!!!
(It seemed that we traded our morning unhappiness for night time unhappiness....Bryan Jinhua has been SCREAMING and CRYING the last three nights. Oh has it been hard. We hold him. We love him. We lay with him. We tell him in our best Chinese "It's okay" and "We love you".....but he has just SCREAMED and CRIED himself to sleep - in our arms. It has been heart-breaking for ALL of us)
BUT tonight he laid down next to me....without a peep and went to sleep!
Ahhh - it was heaven!!
Jamma bought the boys matching pajamas - aren't they TOO cute?!
We fall in love with this sweet face a little more each day!
Silly, snuggly brothers after a bath!
I know, I know....it is not REAL Chinese food - but we are getting desperate here!
Darren came home not wanting ANYTHING to do with Chinese food - but Bryan Jinhua likes his chopsticks and misses his noodles, steamed buns, and dumplings. So, a mom has to do what a mom has to do - even if that means Chow Mein from Panda Express! It tastes quite similar to the noodles we had in China AND I found on the internet a "copycat" recipe of it - so tomorrow (wish me luck!) I am going to try and make it!
We have been HOME a week!
Bryan Jinhua has been OUR son for 2 1/2 weeks!
WE ARE BLESSED!!
