Having Tea with Dong at Susan's Place on Shamian Island
**8pm here in China.....you can now add 3 bruises across Mia's forehead. Didn't I tell you she was table height and ready to run??? While at dinner she was flailing around and "pinged" her head twice smack dab on the top of the table. The other one ??? Right on top of her bruise from yesterday, man this girl is fiesty. She has been trying her momma out and yesterday she almost won but Gordon was sweet enough to stay in the hotel with her while I left for a few hours to re-charge my brain. Remember that Mia and daddy haven't quite bonded yet and everytime I am out of her sight she screams her head off. So I left for about 2 hours and when I returned Gordon tells me that Mia stood at the door with her hands up over her head touching the door whaling for atleast 1/2 hour then he noticed that once she was quiet she was actually falling asleep while standing there. I knew something was up when I opened the door and found a crib blocking the entry way, he had to block the door to keep her corraled in the room so she wouldnt get hurt AGAIN. Marble floors in this hotel room.
Oh and before I forget...Mia....wild child....pulled over the play basketball hoop in the playroom smacking Hannah in the right eyebrow/temple area. I no longer got the words out of my mouth talking to Christine about how many bruises Mia had and did Hannah have any to which she replied no.......Mia made sure she has a twin hanging around the hotel with her sporting the new buise she gifted Hannah with. Christine & John I am soooooo sorry.
I know Gordon will want me to share this story with you also...last night I was preparing a bath for Mia. We were both in the bathroom, me knealing at the tub, Mia all naked just standing and touching everything in sight when I hear her make a different babble noise. I turn and see that she had pooped on the floor, steped in it and was now slipping and sliding around on the floor. I yelled out for Gordon to come in and help-he was on the computer Skyping with his parents ( the end of that conversation must have been interesting). He came into the bathroom, by this time I has grabbed Mia, yes....me fully dressed and now with the added bonus of baby poo...anyway he helped to clean her off before we plunked her into the tub. We both just started to laugh so hard that Gordon had tears.
OK, enough fun for 24 hours.....hope tomorrow is not as eventfull. Oh there are more stories to tell but I dont have the energy to type them out. Lots to share when we get home.
