In his orphanage, Charlie was woken up at 5 a.m. everyday for his bottle feeding and to start his day. We were told that all of the babies were on this schedule. This morning, we all slept in until 7:00, and I think Charlie is starting to get used to sleeping late! He wakes up happy and all smiles when he sees the three of us. It is nice to have his crib so close to our bed. We are thinking that one of us, or maybe Madi, will sleep in his bedroom for a while when we get home, since he was used to sleeping in a room with 20 other babies and now has been waking up to seeing all of us first thing.
Today was a free day. The only place where we "had" to be was on the 2nd floor at 5 p.m. for Charlie's red couch photo with the group, which was the typical red couch photo shoot as we've come to know it. Most of the babies end up in tears. Charlie was in tears from the very moment we sat him down. We still managed to get some cute shots though. We also managed to get some fabulous shots of our Wuwei princess Madi too.
Tomorrow morning starts very early. We need to be downstairs at 7:00 a.m. to go to the American Consulate and file for Charlie's visa to get home. It will be an exciting day for us!
