September. An incredible, life changing month, for our little family. We spent the greater part of the month of September in the very beautiful, China. And Lilah Grace Xiao Tong, became an amazing, big sister. I could not have been more proud of our Lilah girl... than I was on this trip. How she adjusted in travelling, sleeping, eating and taking on one of the biggest roles in her life so far, the role of 'big sister'. She was truly, incedible. And we had the most amazing time, in everything, between Beijing and Changsha and back to Beijing... it will be a journey we never ever forget. And it was Lilah's first time back in her birth country, since she became part of our family, in December 2008. We were on the go non-stop and our Lilah girl barely stopped, she soaked in everything... the people, the food, the language, the sights, the culture, etc, etc. Wow. And she was a fantastic big sister to top it all off. She fed her sister, held hands with her sister, played with her sister, shared with her sister, loved her sister... I barely have words adequate to describe how amazing our big 5 year old was, and still is. We saw so many amazing sights while in China, the great wall, summer palace, beijing zoo, ming tombs, forbidden city, jade factory, tiananmen square, hutong, drum tower and bell tower, donghuamen night markets, martyr's park, hunan embroidery, changde swi, soooo many restaurants! ...we even got to a McDonalds! I don't think any other month this year could top September.
