Happy 2nd Birthday Sophie!

We celebrated Sophie's 2nd birthday today at dim sum in Chinatown.

One of my funniest memories of China is the first morning that Chris, Ileana AND Sophie were at the White Swan Hotel. I was so excited to see them, and meet Sophie, that I decided to go down to breakfast and find them. Eric wasn't quite ready yet, so I insisted that I could take both girls. We didn't have a double stroller with us -- and you can't buy one in China! -- so I plunked one baby in a single stroller and strapped the other to my hip in a carrier. I then proudly set off to find Chris and Ileana. I must have looked ridiculous but I got to the breakfast buffet and found the three of them in line. I didn't stay for breakfast but did meet Miss Sophie! I can't believe it's aready been more than 14 months since that first meeting.

So happy 2nd birthday Sophie! We hope we get to celebrate many more birthdays with you.

The pictures below are from the restaurant where we had dim sum. There is a large stage at one end of the restaurant and the girls went up on the stage and played "Ring Around the Rosie" and generally just ran amuck. In the last two pictures Michal and Kenna are balancing on the railing singing "Flying in an Airplane" and Michal is jumping off the stairs yelling, "Hooray!".

We certainly were not an inconspicuous group!
