What a memorable Birthday!

Today life presented me with the best gift a person could ask for. After wishing, praying, hoping and dreaming, I am a mommy. Today my day was spent with Mia sleeping in til 8:45am (YEA) and then we had breakfast and off to shopping with Mia's 2 china sisters and their mommies. Mike still feels like his head is going to explode, so he stayed in the room trying to decompress.

After a nap, our group planned a dinner cruise down the the Pearl River. Our guides were sneaky and surprised me with a birthday cake and everyone sang. When I made a wish to blow out my candle, I thought to myself, my wish has come true, she is sitting on my lap reaching for my cake! We were able to walk outside and see all the tall buildings along the river, it was beautiful. Tomorrow I will treat myself to a 1hr massage and a pedicure for $30 american dollars in the reflexology center downstairs. It is wild!

Thanks Mom and Dad for sneaking a birthday card with Mike ! What a nice surprise.

Mia is going to have her grandparents wrapped around her finger, wait until you meet her! Only 4 more days until we land in FL. . . . .

Your daughter has the best facial expressions. When you get back and have time to really look through the pictures, you will see that some are just characteristically her! They are great to watch.
