1/1/2002 - 2nd day with Anna

Anna is making progress by the minutes. We started first to teach her how to hold her bottle. By yesterday afternoon, she finally did it. We were so happy for her. We saw her took her first step steadily by herself today in the department store while we were shopping for her cloth. She finally stopped eating and started to offer food to us. She made her first sound, which sounded like she was calling Auntie. Occasionally, she would call Mama and Dada, but we donít think she makes any connection with us yet. We taught her how to hold a toy telephone over her eye and say hello in Chinese (wai!). After playing kisses with her, she finally got the concept of offering kisses when you ask her to do so. It was so exciting for all of us. She knows that too. She smiles a lot and easily now.

Of course she has temper! In the hotel play ground, another child took her bottle, she was so mad. She stamped both her feet and then sat down on the floor and put her head between her legs cried loud. She knows what she wants and how to get it!

She was not interested in any of the equipment in the play ground. As matter of fact, we found out that she is a very quiet baby and content playing small toys all by herself. She can play with one thing for a long time.

Taking cloth off and taking a bath are still scary for her. We had taken a bath yesterday. It was not easy. We were wondering what was on her mind.

One of babies from our group seemed very sick so our guide took her to the doctor. It turned out that the baby had bad ear infection. Since we had asked about seeing a doctor if Anna is not completely getting better on her horsy breathing, our guide brought the doctor in the hotel. It turned out that there are a few babies including Anna and the other Huainan baby have brochatis. We started antibiotics for Anna and hope she will recover soon.
