Waking up from sweet dreams...

John was the first to receive surgery, on May 8th. Everything went well, although the nannies say he was very fussy after surgery. I know everyone's happy to have him back at the cleft home, and I'm sure he's much more comfortable there than at the hospital.

We just love all the cute clothes and accessories our babies wear.
Thought we'd share these with you:
We really do believe Ben is one smart cookie!

Jenna has recovered from her sickness and is happy again!
...and she stays healthy by sleeping lots! Her reports say she likes to have her fingers in her mouth all the time...and this picture attests to that!

Doesn’t John look happy and content in all these pictures? It certainly looks like he’s a happy baby! But Zhang Ming warns us to not be “cheated by his disguise. John is actually now the fussiest boy in the cleft home!” John loves bathing and behaves very well in the bathtub, but likes to be the center of attention and quickly becomes fussy when something isn’t going his way.
When John first arrived at the cleft home, he couldn’t hold his head up, but now he can stand up with just a little bit of help! He has also turned into quite the explorer—he likes to go for walks to different rooms and upstairs. He also likes to go out on the balcony to enjoy the outside view and the fresh air! We love that there are so many people at the cleft home to speak to him and tease him…and so many innocent victims that he can trick by his smiley disguise!
Becca and Kyle returned from Anhui Children’s Hospital on April 24th having received their surgeries.
Kyle's smile has already returned...
...and Becca just keeps getting chubbier and chubbier!
up bronchitis before her surgery on May 10th. She certainly looks happy and
healthy, doesn't she?
Then Jon followed on May 4th and had his lip repair surgery on May 8th.
Poor thing looks a little concerned....
Ben went to ACH on the 8th and had surgery on the 13th.
In the meantime, Zhang Ming hired new nannies to care for two new babies who just arrived from
Meet Dawn (she looks like a serious one!)...
In case you’ve lost count, we now have 10 babies in our home! Make you a little tired reading this?
There are times when I feel like I live parallel lives, one here in the states and one in
I apologize for being late in sending this blog, but things have been a LITTLE busy!! I am very thankful for all of the good things happening to “my” children on both sides of the ocean! I hope you enjoy seeing the new faces of the children in our home, I know I do!
