We made it to Guangzhou!

We finally bid farewell to old Tianjin. It was really good to see Micah's hometown and get a feeling for a non-westernized area of China. But it's a good time to move on.

We sat on the tarmac for about an hour before taking off. Micah slept through the flight delay awaking upon take-off. He did pretty well until about 45 minutes to go. Then he started crying. He got himself so worked up he finally threw up. I almost kissed the ground when we finally landed in Guangzhou.

Guangzhou is surreal. It almost feels like Key West in China. It's humid and tropical and almost resort-like. And Barbie turned out to greet us! Micah points to Barbie and shouts Mama. Pretty much any blonde is Mama to him.

On Sunday I woke up feeling crummy. I seem to have caught Micah's cold. We kinda laid low all day only venturing out to the play room. We ordered pizza delivered from Papa John's. Turns out our little guy loves pizza. Here are some pictures of him enjoying his pizza.

Love reading your updates. I'm actually going backwards, as I've read the most recent first. You are doing such an amazing job, Karen and Bruce--I'm learning so much from you.

Enjoy the rest of your trip!

It was great meeting you all on the plane to China and seeing you all united in Guangzhou with your son. Congratulations on becoming parents!! We're hoping to hear from you once you are settled in at home.
