More From Today...

Having her bedtime bottle. She is so congested that I had to prop her up to breath.

With her daddy - Don't you love those rolly polly legs?

She will take a passy - she is getting teeth. She has two on the bottom already!

The little Boys from the airport this morning!

Our food at lunch!

So we had everything but something to mix formula in so all we could find was a wine glass in the room!

You all, I don't even know what to say! She has been a perfect baby so far! She has not cried once and she is sick! She had a temperature when we got her and has horrible congestion. The orphanage gave me some medicine to use and when it is gone I will try and get something else. Anyone has suggestions I am open. Remember can get a prescription and we are IN CHINA! I have baby Tylenol and Motrin. She is taking formula and eats rice cereal and they said she also eats egg custard (Christie she likes souflee - ha). They said she went to bed at 9:30 and I don't hear her rolling around anymore in her crib! We just laid her down and she didn't cry or anything. It is funny if one of us is holding her she wants to see where the other one is. We got a stroller from the hotel and walked down to a Pizza Hut because we litterally have hardly eaten anything. They take us to authentic Chinese and it is NOT the same!! No General's Chicken Key!! We did have Kung Pow Chicken Sichuan Style and it was really good. Izabella is so cute and so fluffy!! If we are silly with her she will giggle at us and smile and get excited. In the stroller when we went to dinner she would kick her leg up on top of stroller. Chongqing is much like New York. Crazy driving and LOT AND LOTS of people. There were people cooking things along the streets and they were playing Chinese Dominos (Mom) and cards. We are definitely in the minority here and EVERYONE stares at us! It is so bizaar! We are so happy and just love her to pieces! I am totally exhausted and while it is quiet I'm going to bed. I'm going to post a few more pictures over on the blog and saying goodnight!!

Oh Hope she is absolutely beautiful!! Try running a hot shower and sitting in the steamy bathroom with her, that should help clear up some of her congestion.

You are truly mommy and daddy and it looks so natural. So happy for you and I can not wait to get my hands on her and hug and kiss her. She is going to be able to eat corn on the cob with nanny real soon with those two teeth. lol Ron has already called and ask if their was an update so told him and he is coming by later to see her pictures. Maybe we can talk later on like we did last night and see each other. Had lots of good comments at church this morning tell you later all were happy for you and scott. Give your little one a kiss and hug for all of us.
Love, MOM and Dad

Congratulations on your beautiful baby!!

Our daughter was really conjested too. Turns out she is alergic to milk. I found out this is very common in China.

Izabella is just beautiful- congratulations! Sorry to hear that she isn't feeling well- it's always hard to see your baby sick.

Hope and Scott,
We are praying for you every day. that little girl is just a beautiful angel. Hope she looked as if she had been yours since the 1st day of her life where she was cuddled up against you. Now Scott I'm not sure about that wine glass. You seemed a bit way to happy about that. We can't wait to see you. Look forward each day to the pictures!!!!!!
God Be With You

Congratulations!!! Izabella is beautiful!! Our son from Yunyang became very congested soon after we met him...we ended up at the clinic at the White Swan and they gave us some medicine that helped him. They gave him a Western antibiotic and a Chinese medicine. The warm shower is a great suggestion!!

Enjoy your time and Izabella!
