my mom (“popo” to the kids) was here taking good care of us for five weeks. isabella waited for her to arrive before making her entrance into the world, and popo also got to stay long enough for isabella’s one month mark or 满月， which is a big milestone in Chinese culture. (side note: we celebrated by going to Pizza Hut… very chinese, wouldn’t you say?) we loved having the time to spend with popo, and we were all sad to see her go. the girls all had so much fun with her, can you tell?
and i love this other shot taken the same day as it captures so much at once that is typical of our family. kaylah is running towards me saying “bao bao” (hold me!). meanwhile, hannah is in the background mimicking her sister – the two of them are constantly copying one another for better or for worse. and then you have the many random bystanders staring (at a very close distance) at our crazy family that is running around chasing each other. we are a great novelty here being now a family of five, but we’re learning to embrace the extra attention it brings… at least on some days. =)
