We have travel visas!

Today I received our passports back from the Chinese Consulate in Chicago.  There is a travel visa affixed to an inside page of each passport.  So, we are officially welcome to enter China.

Today was also a special day in that it marked our first day of significant shopping for Lily’s arrival and our trip.  Julia, Grandma and I ventured to both the Learning Express and Toys R Us to find some fun and engaging toys for both the hotel room stay and the airplane.  We also were able to buy some clothes thanks to receiving her measurements.  We are guessing she is about a 3T or 4T in clothes and 36 months in shoes.  We found several very cute pajama sets with silk pants with hippos on them.  Julia is very envious and wishes she was small enough to get fun clothes again.  Oh well.  She also loved the peanut butter scented stickers we were able to buy as well.  Looking forward to more fun shopping as we begin to prepare for travel.  Below is another fun photo of Lily playing with a bead toy.
