We got there about 11:10am. This time, I had picked out a great Thai Restaurant that was close to her home. Andrew fell asleep on the way there..so when she joined him in the back seat...she just sat and stared at Andrew.
When we got to the Thai place, my partner Ed took Andrew out of the car seat. He immediately stared back at his mommy.
During the lunch he sat between me and mommy. He watched every move she made as if he was in awe. She played with him and kissed him..and took him around the restaurant. We took some pictures at the restaurant and outside. It was a beautiful day.
Andrew's mommy called us to give us her new cell phone number. It has changed several times and usually I have to try to find her, but THIS time she called me to tell me her new number. What wonderful progress.
We are taking her out to lunch this saturday at 11:30. I'm excited for her to see Andrew because he now has two teeth and has reached some exciting milestones. I will take tons of pictures during our lunch together. We are going to a thai restaurant close to where she is staying.
I know Andrew's mommy will be soo happy to see Andrew and I can't wait to capture the moment with lots of pictures and maybe even a video clip.
I am most excited about this because there is some true progress here. Our communication with Andrew's mommy is becoming more and more frequent and now it is initiated by all of us.
14 hours there and 11 hours returning. Andrew slept for 10 hours each way. When he was awake he was in great spirits. No horror stories. He adjusted easily to the time change in the Philippines, however since we have returned he is struggling with his internal clock. Here are some pictures of our new home in the Philippines as well as some pics of Andrew at his first year birthday.
