Long Night

Everything is going well today. Unfortunately the night did not go so well. Adam and I were up all night with Noah. He went to sleep very easily but was fussy and crying most of the night. I am so tired I can barely think. He is doing fine today so far. He has watched some movies, played with matchbox cars, little Army men, and looked at some books. He also went with us to get our dog Annie from the kennel. He seems a little skittish about her but he also wants to be around her. Annie hasn't even given Noah the time of day. I think she is so happy to be home all she wants to do is lye around and catch up on some sleep. When we were on our way to pick up Annie he was playing with his new Build-A-Bear, compliments of Aunt Renee and her crew. The bear came with a mini fishing pole and some fish. Olivia said, "it's a fishing pole", and Noah repeated the same words and then started laughing. He just kept saying it over and over again and continued to laugh. We got a big kick out of it too. I'm note so sure that those words don't just mean something funny in Chinese. Who knows but it is progress in him learning English.
We thank you all for the prayers. We still are in great need of them. We have a long road ahead of us in many ways but I know the Lord will be with us all the way. I am going to include some random pictures from our trip that we haven't included before. One will be a picture of the infamous squatty potty. The girls loved this part of the trip (NOT). It definitely stretched our ability to conform to some of the gross things in life. We are very happy to be home and sleeping in our own beds. Thanks for the prayers!!!
