Baby's first bed...
Beautiful view from our window!
Aunt Mimi with the caterpillar neck pillow at the baby's bed, showing them both off!
Pic of me in front of the beautiful fowntain downstairs in our lobby. This is a 5-star hotel. It is absolutely gorgeous. Even the rooms feel more 'homey', cozey than any I've ever stayed at.

Here we are on the Marble stairs going downstairs to visit the bookstore... oh my, what were we thinking?!! haha.

We're having a blast, so far. Tomorrow, we get little M at about 4pm here... or 4am there! :) I'm still a nervous wreck, but Sis assures me I'll be fine!! :)

PS. We are having a little more trouble with our internet connection here in Nanning. I'll keep posting as much as I can, though!
