We are leaving for China in the morning!!! Wahooo!!! I can't believe it is FINALLY here!!! I can't wait to hold Grace!!! I am super sad to be leaving Ian here but I know it is for the best. David and I really need that time alone with Grace for bonding. I know she will bond very fast to Ian. I am told that she LOVES his picture the best in the family album I sent to her!
I started feeling pretty crummy last evening. I went to bed super early but woke up in the middle of the night with the stomach bug Ian had last week :( Needless to say the timing isn't the best!!
