Phoenix Photos

Now, I know what you’re thinking – that our blog is now going to turn into a baby photo blog!  I assure you that while we will be featuring articles about our new child (naturally) we’re still going to have the same regular content as before.  Coming up in the next few days is a This Week in Food, just to let you know what we (or at least, I) have been eating during this time.

What I want to show you now is how Phoenix looks around at everything and appears to be able to see well enough to follow action.

Baby Phoenix

Phoenix is a very observant baby and she often looks around out of the side of her eyes like this.

The next series of 4 photographs really surprised me when I reviewed them, as you can clearly see that Phoenix is following her mother’s hands as Hui-chen brings over the wrap to swaddle her:

Now I know this is nothing strange to you parents out there, but please keep in mind that this is my/our first child and I found this behavior fascinating because I read that newborns cannot see very well at all.

Thanks for reading.  Please tell us what you think!

  1. Wow MJ – really excited for you and no need to apologize even if this blog changes to a blog about your baby. She is cute. Awesome stuff. Loved seeing the pics of her. Congratulations and I know you guys are going to be awesome parents and that Phoenix is going to have a love filled life of joy and happiness with you all.

    Post more pictures and enjoy.

    Congrats to you both (and good luck on getting enough sleep)

    1. hi Paul, nice to cu in our comments section again. thanks for your kind comments. we think she’s cute too, but of course, lol! we’re currently in the convalescent center and already experiencing not enough sleep. so yes, the road ahead has some curves but we’re really enjoying our little one very much. thanks Paul and take care.

    1. Becky! how are you and your family? we haven’t seen you in ages! in fact, we haven’t met your daughter yet but she sure is cute! Becky you know that your family is always welcome in our home, anytime! we’ll be back in Hukou soon and you’e welcome to visit at your convenience. thanks for your kind comments and take care!

    1. hi Carolyn. i took the liberty of editing your comment to reflect your meaning. we are not home with her yet. we’ll be heading home at the end of the month. in the meantime, every day that we get to spend with Phoenix means there will be more photos of her. she’s changing every day and she looks different now than she did at the beginning. but, still 100% cute of course. i’ll post some new photos shortly. thanks for being one of our most loyal readers, Carolyn. btw, i had the pleasure of spending the evening with Michael C. the other night. he really is a gentleman, and i very much enjoyed our association. take care Carolyn.
