Henry is still eating like a champion. He loves raisins but will consume anything we’ve put before him so far.

His hair is short, sparse, and wiry. In his baby pictures he was completely bald. His fingers are long and thin, perhaps we have another pianist on our hands.
Henry is also, unlike his brothers, strikingly passive. This could just be a combination of his shyness and new surroundings. He accepts almost everything that happens to him without protest. He has only been really upset twice in the last 50 hours. He cried silently when his ayi (nanny) handed him to mom but screamed when mom took his shoe and sock off so he could leave a footprint on a form. That’s another difference between him and Michael, he likes to keep his clothes on. 😀

Today (Tuesday), Hanna and Spencer went to see the terra-cotta warriors. The rest of the family had a quieter day, going to a nearby park and having nap time at the hotel.
On Wednesday, we have the opportunity to go to the Baoji Children’s Welfare Institute where Lucy and Henry lived. We hope to be able to see Lucy’s foster parents again but cannot be sure that will work out. Thursday we tour Xi’an’s beautiful city wall and after some more paperwork for Henry on Friday, we fly to Guangzhou to begin our work with US immigration. After Friday, we will be done working with the Chinese government (for this trip), Henry is officially ours in their eyes.
