She woke up in a great mood and happy to see us. Then when we were getting ready for the day, Zoe decided that she wanted nothing to do with Daddy and became glued to me. I mean, the girl wouldn't even let me put her down.
We've been told that can happen where the child might attach more to one parent than the other. My fear was she would latch onto Eriek because he seems to be the Pied Piper of children. They have always flocked to him. I was worried she wouldn't want anything to do with me, then Eriek would have to go right back to work when we got home, and she would be inconsolable. So, as tough as it is that she is hit or miss with Daddy right now, we're glad she's latching onto Mommy.
We had some Skype time with Mimi, Pops and big sister. Zoe was very excited and kept pointing to Arella. Arella was initially excited kissing Zoe on the screen again, then she started to get a little jealous and walked away. When Daddy took Zoe out of view, Arella was happy to come back and talk to Mommy. Looks like we'll have some adjusting to do for a bit when we come home. Obviously we expect some of that, I just pray that God equips me with wisdom in how to best handle it.
All over this park people were gathered doing exercises. Exercising at a park is pretty much always done in a group and takes the form of Tai Chi, ballroom dancing, belly dancing, or pretty much any other form of dancing that usually involves really bad American music that I have never heard. Zoe did like it when I joined the outskirts of the ballroom dancing and twirled her around.
We're checking out the koi pond here, but Zoe is more fascinated with the trees.
Look, they even have baby koi for kids!

Next stop, my favorite, Chinese grocery store! I love how different things are here. How different you ask? This is the walkway down to another level. I guess it's a food aisle, too.
Eriek is hanging out with chickens for sale.
And yes, that is a flat pig's head. Awesome. Aren't you hungry now?
Then we finally came back to the hotel to relax. We had some seriously sweet giggle time with Zoe and she started cooing, almost purring, like Gizmo. Such a precious little girl!
Just laying low the rest of the day. Tomorrow it's off to the embroidery museum. Hmmmm....
