Finally....pictures!!!

I know that it's shocking, but I (Greg) decided to finally contribute to the blog. We apologize for taking so long to upload pictures, however we just found out today (after nearly 1 1/2 weeks) that the hotel offers free wireless internet in the lobby. So much gets lost in translation in China...

Sophie is a sweetheart but also very dramatic and prone to hysterical outbursts at the drop of a dime. For the first few days, Sophie would cry any time that Emma even looked at her. Sophie has also been waking up the household the past 3 nights and for some reason enjoys sleeping at the foot of the bed. She'll be fighting with Mikey (our Sheltie) when we arrive home for the prime spot near our feet.

Emma has done very well and is off to a great start being a Jie Jie (older sister) to her Mei Mei (younger sister). With that being said, Emma loves to torment Sophie by grabbing her toys/blankets and puting them somewhere where Sophie can't reach.

Enjoy the pictures and keep us in your prayers for a safe trip home on Thursday/Friday. Take care and our love to all.

Rgs,

Greg M.

Yeah!!! Nice post Greg! Thank you for finally posting pictures for the Monteith Fan Club (blog stalkers). Ohhhhh, she is so cute; so tiny next to her jie jie. Love when they're that size. And the short SWI hair; gotta love it. So sweet to see a clip in it. She's beautiful. Must say, Emma looks like she is so happy and proud being the older sister. I'll be thinking about you all on that long flight back. I'll wait a week for the jet lag to ease before I start calling!!! Hugs to you all, Sarah and Eliza... p.s. Did you blow a kiss south and west to Meiying for me?

I was so excited to see pictures of Sophie and all of you this morning when I opened up the blog (for about the 1000th time!) Emma looks like she is having a blast and Sophie is so adorable! We can't wait until you get home and we get to meet Sophie in person! We would have been greeting you at the airport, but we are leaving for a 4 day trip. Here's to safe and uneventful flights home! Love you guys!

Adorable! Sophie looks like a wonderful little girl! Jack & Mikey will be thrilled with their new little sister...even if Mikey will be losing his place on the bed. :) The guys are still having fun, but I would imagine they'll be ready to play with two girls when you get home! Enjoy your last few days in GZ. You are planning on coming as a WHOLE FAMILY to get the boys, right? We would really like to see you all - but understand if you decide that it is better for a later meeting. Hugs!!

It's so great to hear from you! Sophie is beautiful. She was certainly worth the long wait! (Maybe you should send some pictures to the nice folks at CIS.) Hope you all are feeling better and enjoying your trip!
