Stories of Suhn!
We have been thrilled to see new pictures of Suhn pop up on the AH blog and website in the past week. Along with the pictures are stories of Suhn. Google translates them, but it is a hard to read translation.
This morning I received a more accurate translation from a friend whose daughter is also at AH (we will be traveling to bring our girls home together). I can't wait for you to read the stories.
We are bringing home a priceless treasure in a few weeks.
I LOVE my sweet China girl! And the women at AH who care for my Suhn love her too, again priceless!
In a twinkling, Ruixue is also going to go back home, going back her real own home. We "hate" to let her go. When we brought her back to He Nan for her passport, she kept calling "Na Na" on the train. I suddenly realized that she kept remembering me all the time. She is the first baby who can call my name so clearly. When I looked at this little beauty grows up and makes a progress little by little, the sweetness from the bottom of my heart speaks for itself. I think that the most happy person should be Qing Ling Sister, who often carries Ruixue with her own tiny body, gives her training, and also teaches her English. This time when Ruixu is going to leave, she is also very happy, although she "hates" to let her go. Fundamentally, the baby is going back family and will grow up much faster and better. What we can give her is all our best wishes!
Lovely and smart Big Ruixue
I went to see the babies on Saturday. So happy to see Ruixue! She really improved a lot in the recent few months. She is generous and so good-hearted. We praised her "Xue'er (nick name of Ruixue; meaning snow), your hair pin is so pretty!" She touched her pretty hairpin immediately. I teased her "Xue'er, you see how messy my hair is". The little girl quickly pulled out a hair pin from her head and wanted to give me the hair pin. She is so sweet!
And then I asked her to give me a kiss. She did not come close to me with her small lips. Instead, she giggled and bumped into my nose with her big forehead. When I hid my nose with my hands and pretended to scream. "My nose has gone!" Rui Xue immediately pulled my hands down, had a look, and was happy to keep saying:"It is still there, there, there!" LOL, she was laughing at me....We played for a long time near a pool.
When I asked her what was inside the pool. She said:"Water! Fish!". I stressed my neck and asked:"Where is the fish? There is no fish." She said loudly with very tender voice:"There! There! ..."When I pretended to say against her and insisted that there was no fish. She screamed again and said:"There! There!". We were so happy and played for a long long time without feeling any fatigue.
An old lady nearby also teased her and called her "Rui Xue". Rui Xue also called the old lady loudly: "Nai Nai (that is, a Chinese way of calling old ladies grandmothers although who are not but are similar ages to grandmother). The old lady said: "Xue, when you call Nai Nai, I responded. So when I called you, you need to respond as well." Therefore, the old lady called again "Rui Xue". Rui Xue stopped for a few seconds and was happy to respond:"Y..."(Similar to "YES", a Chinese way of responding to someone who call our names). Her look was so cute!
