Our week...

Jack sleeping in the backpack. It's great becuase he's easy to put down when he sleeps here... Although this past week he didn't take a nap longer than 45 min.... not sure what that is about :o)

My Mom's group has a Christmas tea last week. Here we are making necklaces..

Jack is learning how to get his thumb, or other fingers into his mouth for sucking...

Playing with dad and mom....

Jack is learning to play with friends :o) Here he and Josiah are checking each other out, not sure wha they think....

Well, our guests have left, so its time for an update. We had a great week with our friends Dan and Jess and their baby Ally. Both babies were great, and it wasn't a big deal to have them both in our smallish apartment. We have been in full Christmas swing, advent candles, calendar, and lots of cookie baking! We are hosting Christmas parties for all the MS teachers and staff, so I've been getting ready. The first one is this Thur. We are excited and looking forward to this month, especially going home to the US at the end.

Our Christmas Shopping with Christine and Jess and the babies. We got quite a few looks :o)

Not so easy to get a picture... it would help if they could sit up on their own. Maybe next year :o)

Jack is looking greasy becuase I'm trying to get rid of the red rash on his cheeks. He puks at night then sleeps in it, so his face wasn't looking good. He also slobbers all day, which doesn't help :o)

Jacks frist time holding hands with a girl :o) If only he knew what he was doing :o)

Out for dinner, letting the dads carry the babies...

Not loving wearing the hat

bryan has been waiting for months for Jack to fit into this shirt!

Jack helping decorate Chrismtas cookies (by sititing nicely, so I can do it.)

In the jaccuzzi, or Jackuzzi as we like to call it.

All bundled up to out and run with mom...

my first turkey and Christmas decorating

I know that Thanksgiving isn't until next week but we've already celebrated!We celebrated yesterday because there is a conference at school over the Thanksgiving holiday. It was a great Saturday. I was up early to take the turkey out and get it ready to go in the oven. While I may not eat meat, I had fun cooking the big bird! I had Bryan take lots of pictures because this was my very first turkey cooking experience :o) While the turkey was in the oven we decorated our apartment for Christmas... Then we had a lovely afternoon with about 4o friends and colleagues enjoying the turkey and other great food! Happy holidays!!!
I'm giving the turkey a bath here to speed up the defrosting!

here's what I have been up to...

Hi everyone, Jack here! I just wanted to tell you what I have been up to this past week. I am loving my new hair cut and the cooler weather of Hong Kong. I also have been excited to play with some new toys that mom got out for me. Enjoy all the pictures.

I have been wearing bibs a lot lately so mom doesn't have to change my whole outfit when I puke, or drool...

I love when we go down to the Jaccuzzi. I really like being wrapped all up in the cozy towel to come home and take a shower to rinse off.

Here I am going to sleep with my dad. I was able to suck on my fist and put myself to sleep. No pacifier, it was a great night!

Yesterday I got to go watch dad coach a Basketball game. It was outside, so I got to enjoy the sunshine with mom. The team lost, but we had fun anyway!

Mom made this great hat for my friend Josiah. She is making me one too, but I had to try this one on for size. You can tell that I love it!

I still love to suck on dad's finger when I am upset, which is pretty often :o) He calms me right down.

This was me this morning, hanging out on the couch in my pjs...

Here I am in a new outfit. See how I can puke and smile at the same time, I am so talented!
