packing and weather

This week I packed Lilah's suitcase, and then decided (after the fact) that she needs a bigger suitcase! Whoever saw that one coming! I'm blaming it on the two climates! In Guangzhou it will be quite warm, but in Beijing it will be colder. Not to mention I have no idea what size will fit our baby girl, so I have a lot of different sizes thrown in, just in case!

We also heard from our agency contact yesterday. She received a copy of the hotel reservation for Beijing, so now she has sent our passports and visa applications to the Chinese Embassy in Ottawa to have the visas processed. We hope to have our itinerary for our trip within China soon. 17 more days to go before we fly!

  1. Wooooo Hooooo ... an update at last, and not before time!!!
    I'm soooooo excited for you!
    Can't wait to hear more.

  2. I am sure not surprised about the bigger suitcase!!
    You have so many beautiful clothes for Lilah Grace and yes you are right about sizes, But remember to leave some room for clothes from China as you love shopping Jill!
    Love you Mum xxx

  3. are getting so close!!!

    One word of advice is to not pack that much clothing wise. I know you have the 2 different climates, but you can buy there and also do hotel laundry service. I would suggest maybe 3 outfits for each city....sounds crazy but I would do that if I were to go back again. Also mix & match stuff too!!!! Also you can buy suitcases there for all the goodies for home. I think we came home with 3 extra!!!

    Happy packing!!!
