China blues....

Here it is Tuesday already and we are just beginning to get over our long journey and Isabel is fighting a cold she came with. We are trying to establish a routine and head upstairs to the babies just after breakfast. The nannies each are assigned several children and have them well in hand. There is a sort of routine but it is difficult to realize it until you have been here a while. Twenty one small bodies can be chaotic and very loud. So we feed them and cuddle them and wipe their noses and referee squabbles and play with them and pet them... It is all we can do. We are beginning to know each little character and their special traits. Even though I cannot see the blog I am hoping you will get the photos so you can get to know the kids too. Isabel makes a bee line for little Lily and I head over to Kaitlyn's cot.....the tiniest and weakest of all the kids. After another great lunch prepared by the nannies we venture outside. Bit murky due to the
pollution China is so famous for, but not cold. We stopped into Starbuck's for some home comfort and then had a walk around the supermarket which I find interesting. Isabel has taken a liking to Chinese candy..imagine that!!! Once back we got in a little more baby time and now our usual noodle dinner and to bed with a good book. I hope to sleep past 530 tomorrow. Just a reminder that our email should go to My brain was mush yesterday and I could have written it wrong. The whole foster home thing is pretty overwhelming to be perfectly honest. But the kids are great and if you have any, kiss them and tuck them in tight and tell them you love them tonight and pray for those that are here.
