we went back to the Chinese Public Affairs building and made the adoption
official. We were asked questions such as "do you accept this child"
and will you never abandon her". Easy stuff.
Afterwards we had the rest of the day off for whatever. Sophia
finally ate something for the first time since we got her. Everyone says
it is because she is greiving, but we were worried. She ate a whole jar
of Apples and Banana baby food and almost a whole jar of Peach juice.
Later before bed she had a few other bites of baby food, but we think
she is teething which is hurting her appetite.
We went out as a group (8 families) to a Cantenese restaraunt
that I thought was wonderful. The entire meal, including my three beers
was about $6 a person. Good stuff. Also I gave Sophia a bath tonight,
and as I rocked her to sleep she held my ear and pressed her mouth to
mine. Of course her fingers were in her mouth, but to me it was the sweetest
thing ever. Here are 12 pictures from today.
