So then Baba decided that it was time to teach Rylee to give thumbs up. She thought this was a riot and has been giving him the thumbs up sign, along with the appropriate giggles, all evening! She also chastised him after dinner tonight. She went in for a snuggle (no prompting even from him - woo hoo!) and when she pressed her cheek to his, she pulled back and started talking and poked her finger in several places on his cheek all the while shaking her head "no"! It was completely obvious that she was telling him that it is unacceptable to go a day without shaving and that it does not feel good on her baby soft cheeks! He promptly assured her that he would never skip another day shaving again!
Tomorrow we take Rylee on her first plane ride. We get her passport in the morning and then we fly to Guangzhou to finish up the rest of the paperwork. It is a little bit sad to be leaving the area and we have already decided that as soon as we are able and Rylee is a bit older, we will have to come back for a homeland tour. There is just too much to try to absorb and take back for her, so much that we didn't see. I guess it is just hard to leave the place where you found the very greatest treasure!
