~*The Ups and Downs*~

Last night was awfully quiet around here...staying awake for 28 hours (minus a few small naps) will do that to a person or three.  

Analina is still largely running on Shanghai time and she was up for the day at 1 a.m.  I was up with her for a few hours then Baba (daddy) stayed up with her so I could get another 2 hours in.  Dalton was up for the day super early, as well.  

Getting little miss back to sleep for a nap in her bed (28 or so hours up, 5 hour rest last night, up for another 10 hours) was NOT happening.  We finally resorted to putting her down in the crib still up in our room.  We'll have to transition her to a twin bed because she was not going to sleep in one without a massive fight!  Wondering if a safety rail would make her feel better. She doesn't NEED it but it might help her feel safer.   

Dalton was so tired, still, that he was pretty much a zombie, poor little guy...He's a sweet zombie, though!  
Moments before he threw up and nearly passed out...poor little guy!
There are moments with tears and moments with giggles...here are a few pictures from the last 24 hours!

Freshly bathed and eating dinner before crashing for the night!








It was at this moment I cried because it hit me hard...he's a brother!



  
Watch Peanut...she's watching carefully to see what Analina is doing so she can copy her!
 






There are so many changes for these sweet little ones.  Between culture shock, jet lag, fear of the cats, fear of cars, stores, so much to be overwhelmed with.  We are so proud of our two brave warriors!  

1 John 4:18
There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.
