We took Leo to Vera and Claes’ place today to see their baby girl Kayleen. She was born on the 9th and is as cute as can be. Leo got to meet her, and while he looked confused, Kayleen was a bit more vocal in her reaction. LOL It was so cute. Leo: “It’s ok Kayleen . . . sheesh…. wow, get over it…..” Leo, “shush, or I bonk your head!” Keyleen,… Read More

At roughly 9:40 AM, the US Consulate office in Shanghai, China, on the 8th floor of in West Gate Mall, proclaimed Leo to be a bonafide citizen of the United States of America. He handed us a USA flag sticker and said “Welcome to the team!” 🙂 While the declaration was made, it will be another week or three before his papers are ready for pick up. Nonetheless, it’s official, he’s an American!!!

Tingting and I took Leo out for another picnic today. Of course, he fell asleep almost immediately so we did not get many good pictures. Tingting and I ate some fruit and ordered Indian delivery. Many, I love the curry and butter chicken here, it’s so good. I’d love to go taste the real thing in India to see the differences.

The 3rd is my father in-law’s birthday, so today Tingting and I took him out for lunch and then had cake at home. We ate lunch at this yummy place on the 7th floor of the Japanese Takashimaya building.

We took little Leo out for a long walk today, and stopped off  in a small park to just sit and enjoy the weather.

This might be Leo’s first attempt to legitimately reach out and touch something on his own. He just turned 8 weeks old yesterday, so this is a big milestone. It seems Donald and Tigger have really grabbed his attention.

“OK, need new clothes for Leo”  Shop Saturday Bought online Sunday Arrived Tuesday Too small already… UDPATE: Daddy learned from Mommy that the outfit Leo was wearing below, was not bought on Sunday, but was a gift from a friend . . . . still too small already 😦 and it says “6-9 months”! LOL

We don’t  take Leo out much, but last night was an exception. Our good friends Vera and Claes joined us for a short walk and dinner. They’re expecting a baby girl any day now and will move shortly after that to Sweden. I’ve known Very since 2012, and she’s been one of my closest friends while living in Shanghai. I will miss her very much when she leaves, but I’m so happy… Read More

It was a beautiful day here in Shanghai. Tingting’s sister and parents came to visit. They brought us some duck, homemade bread, corn on the cob and some other great yummies. The food was good, but naturally, they just wanted to see Leo. 🙂
