...and more pictures of our little one

There is a playroom in this hotel that we're staying at here in Guangzhou called the Swan Room.  We took Marisa down there last evening for a little while before bath and bedtime.  We were the only ones in the playroom at the time.  She seemed to enjoy it.
 
And after a long day this is what our sweet little one looks like when she sleeps.  It has been difficult to follow her normal routine and get her down for a nap with the different things we have to do during the day.  So many times we end up with a grouchy and sleepy girl by evening. She does pretty well though considering all the changes.  And thankfully Marisa can sleep with a little bit of noise and light because we put her to bed and stay up a little and it usually doesn't take her long to fall asleep.  Another interesting thing has happened.  When we first got Marisa she would hang on to the teddy bear we had sent her and she wanted it while she slept.  But the past two nights now she doesn't want it while she sleeps.  I guess that is a good sign that she must feel safe and secure and not need it.

So exciting to see lots of pictures! What a little ham! I especially like the one of her in the tub & with the sunglasses. I'm so glad to hear that things are progressing smoothly. She looks very relaxed & at ease in the pictures. She is a very lucky little girl. Enjoy your time & looking forward to reading more about your adventures! :) We love you! Brenda & Chris

She is so adorable, looks like a typical 2 year old. It will be so nice once you get home and into a routine and see how she does. Can't wait till we can meet her. Pray that everything will go smoothly from here on. We love you, Dad and Mom

Marisa looks like she is having a blast in the playroom.
