Our Little Celebrity

Our Little Celebrity

Reese attracted a crowd at the grocery store. I could not get over that little old man’s face! This was back in November I believe.


Hello again!

Dear friends,

I apologize for my long haitus. I have missed posting on the blog. I am committing myself to catching up and resuming my posts 🙂  Here are a few recent gems before I launch into the past:


The bassinet on the plane was a blessing!


We chained our stroller to a bike rack before we got in a taxi to go get lunch 🙂

So… for some reason my photos are loading sideways. I swear I rotated them before I saved them… but I’m having loader issues so just turn your head the appropriate direction 🙂

Life is good in China. Our new fabulous neighbors the Willford’s are proving to be a party below us. They have 3 darling girls (photo at Daylight Donuts included) and their cute little 3 month old son. It’s nice to have a friend who is an experienced mom close by. We walked over to get a donut this morning and I indulged in some sub-par hot chocolate. It’s very cold and windy here!

Rod invited one of his students from last year over. His chosen English name is Brett (much better than some gems Rod has had: Mango, Matrix, Smiles, Circle) and Rod really likes him. He says “Brett gets it.” His English is good and it was nice to have him come for dinner. He brought us over a bottle of Australian Merlot to be polite – and we felt bad to have to tell him we don’t drink 🙂 hahaha

My fave photo in there is the one of Reese looking at the photo on facebook of th Hacking’s new baby boy. We were so excited to hear about his arrival and Reese is excited to meet him 🙂

Reese in China

Happy Halloween!

Yes it snowed 5 inches. Yes that is our “garbage man.” Yes those few garbage cans are for a few 20 floor towers of people. Yes it’s gross.

Just getting ready to go on a walk. She’s a content little girl.

Meeting the staff on Rod’s campus.

They love her in China 🙂

We miss you all!

We’re here!

Ni Hao! Okay this may be one of the lamest posts ever but I’m just popping on to say we made it to China. After a huge cry fest because my parents ended up being unable to get on my flight with me (buddy passes are a tough way to travel), Reese and I did in fact survive our journey around the globe and arrived in one piece happy to see Rod and to settle back in to our apartment. Mom and Dad arrived the next day and we totally enjoyed them being here – even if for a short time.

I don’t have any pictures to post for this one – and I haven’t posted in forever because A. I’m feeding an infant around the clock 😉 and B. Our internet pass code to get around the Great Firewall of China to access blogs and Facebook has not been working. Magically it connected tonight and thus this short post. Hopefully I’ll get back into the swing of posting on here soon. Miss you all!

1 Month

Just got done changing a blow out diaper 🙂 Love it! Can’t believe she’s 1 month old. Honestly. I still need to do a post about coming home from the hospital, her first bath, her blessing, etc. but I’m afraid I’ll have to get to those later. Until then enjoy these cute photos. This is going to sound corny but I really don’t have words for how much I love her. Isn’t she adorable?! And she’s growing a double chin like a champion!

Thanks Hailey for the super cute hat!!!

Love my baby carrier! She was totally comfy in it and I think it’ll be really nice to have in Beijing.

Skyping with Daddy. We miss him! We fly out next Wednesday with my parents – how totally fun is that?!
