One more morning of shopping today, this time in a store that was somewhat like super walmart. By the time we left we had three carts full of supplies for the home. The highlight of the shopping expedition was watching Zhang Ming clear the shelves of the type of baby formula we need. He has found it difficult to find in quantity and when he found it, he bought it! Unfortunately we didn’t have our camera.
We returned to the home to unpack, have a training session and play with the babies. I must say we really have some wonderful nannies. They clearly love the children and are very attentive. Because all of the nannies were there for training, there were enough arms to hold every baby. I can already tell a difference in some of the babies’ ability to hold their heads up since they’ve been with us, even the nannies noticed.
We had a little photo shoot with the nannies and the babies. Then we lined the babies up on the couch for a picture. I really didn’t think it was going to work because these babies are still so floppy. But as you can see, they stayed upright. It was really funny because none of them moved and no one made a peep for a LONG time. All of the adults were in stitches watching them. I guarantee you that if we try this again in a month, they will not be sitting still!
Everyone is beginning to settle in and feel more at home. I cannot tell you how great it is to hear the sound of laughter, cooing and singing as the babies are carried all over the house. The nannies seem to enjoy each other’s company and were having fun together by the end of the day. One little fellow didn’t want to be put down and his nanny came up with a solution that let her arms have a rest and kept him cozy!
I will hate to leave these little people, they are so endearing. Thank you so much for your support.
