I am typing this from the Rex hotel with my sweet son sitting contentedly in my lap. He has been a dream. He pees, poops, brushes teeth and bathes all without incident! This is absolutlely wonderful. For you NT families let me tell you the nannies are great!!! The hotel is an absolute beach front dream and cheap! We spent roughly 150.00 bucks for two nights, a tour, laundry and phone calls home! We can't even get one night in the states for that! The hotel is gorgeous and the people are kind.
Samuel really kinda kept his distance yesterday. He ate great and was no problem. We hit the road for the seven hour journey back and he and Thomas (another NT guy) did absolutely great. About half way Tam (Samuel) climbed out of my lap and onto the seat between us and proceeded to throw up. We stopped, cleaned him up and changed him and kept going. A couple of hours later he again climbed out of my lap and threw up. Do I have a thoughtful son or what? I think he got a little motion sick because let me tell you the ride was rough!!!! I can't begin to count the number of times I saw my life flash before my eyes! If ever I lived here I would have to have a driver because I could never do it. Brother Andy, I think you might could be my driver! The rule is there are no rules, you drive at top speed and toot your horn as you pass cars. When you meet a car you wait until the last possible moment to get over and if you are the bigger vehicle they have to get over. =)
Anyway, so today we have run all over creation applying for this and doing that but it has been great. Tam has really warmed up to us and is making much more eye contact and talking to us. He follows Jim like a shadow. He loves to play ball with us. Last night he slept like a dream. He is a very shy child and will not make eye contact with others, even Vietnamese. We have been teaching him to eat with a fork. It's not that he doesn't know how, but he is used to being fed. At lunch today he was able to spear his fruit and eat it himself.
Blake, he really likes cars so you guys should have a great time together. Grace, I have some really pretty dresses just foryou. Anyway, we are about to go to dinner. I know this utopia will problay end soon, but boy is this child just easy.
Bonnie, I am glad to hear what you are having. A boy for Randy to play with will be fun. Hope all is going well and i will update again tomorrow. Maybe then I can post a picture.
