Yesterday, we received an email with this pic of Meili from our travelmates. What a gift! Micalee celebrated her 2nd birthday a couple of days ago and was kind enough to share her cake with her little friends. I think Meili remembered her cake from a little over a month ago and this time knew exactly what to do with it. In most of the pictures, she is either diving into the cake or seriously thinking about it. All previous pics we have of her show a shy and timid little girl so it's nice to see some spunk in her.
Grandma Judy noticed from the pics that Meili is feeding herself with her left hand. Not sure if it's because there is a toy or something (choking hazard if you ask me) in her right hand or if we truly may have a lefty on our hands. That would make her left-handed Daddy very proud. I've also added hair clips and 'socks that match' to the packing list.
Last night, Matt came home from a meeting, sat down at the table and said, 'I'm in love with that baby!' She's already got Daddy wrapped around her little finger and he hasn't even met her yet. Two weeks from tomorrow, we'll board the plane to China. Time seems to be moving slower than ever. This is by far the worst part of the wait.
