What will we do without 姐姐?

We put our daughter on a bus this morning to go to the airport to get on a plane for Beijing and then Manila.  Right now, she is hanging out in the Beijing airport, probably eating Burger King.  She is going  to the Philippines on a service trip with her school.  They will be there about ten days serving meals to street children and doing some practical work in an orphanage. They are also hoping to spend at least one afternoon on a beach.  For those of us stuck in below freezing Northeast China, this seems like a pretty sweet deal!
Our sweet little guy loves his 姐姐。She calls him 小弟and they have a mutual admiration society.

Every evening  before bed, we hang out on our bed and he practices rolling and sitting.  Our daughter is the official sitting teacher.

He is pretty good at the tummy flying position!  "I believe I can fly..."

Sitting takes some balance and two hands to hold you up!

All by myself!

Oh, oh..going, going.....


Yoga?  Pilates?  Jack LaLanne?  Call it what you want...he loves to bend and stretch.  (Yes, I am wearing a skirt with long underwear and socks, and no, I did not go out like that in public! At least not this time. It's cold here!).

Oh my goodness. Whatever it is, yoga or pilates, he is ADORABLE! Seriously. Sweetest little thing. I know he will miss his lessons from his sissy while she is gone. Hope she has a wonderful time in the Phillipines!
