Living the Dream





I am finally able to figure out how this all works. The language barrier is kind of harsh. I will write in more detail when I get home but, for now, in short.

Our apartment is great. John and Julie and his family are wonderful to us and we are in the Beverly Hills part of town. When we have water and electricity, life is even more grand. The bazaar is alive and fascinating. I am loving the experience, all of it.

Dylan is doing well. He is much bigger and heavier than in December. He is ferociously gnawing at stuff so I guess he is teething. He also has a cough. But otherwise, he is a happy baby, he smile and giggles quite a bit. It is so so so cute. He is starting to recognize me and get more comfortable. He reaches out for me when I see him and he falls asleep in my arms. I am glad we have this bonding period with him before we take him away. His caregivers are extra nice and we are so fortunate. Here are some pics. I will try and post more later.
