Yesterday was quite busy. We started our journey to Vung Tau at 7:30am and didn’t get back until after 5:00pm. The ride there took a while, but Ava was great the whole day even though she didn’t get much of a nap.

So, the actual uniting with Binh was really a whirlwind. We went in to sign some papers and all of a sudden the nanny was standing in the door with him, ready for me to take him. We all know I don’t get too excited, or at least show it. I don’t do this on purpose, I think I’m just taking in the whole situation. Anyway, I didn’t cry or anything. I just took him and went on signing the papers. What else was I supposed to do?:)

We went to lunch at the beach after the G-n-R ceremony, (which consisted of more signing of papers and a picture). At lunch, Binh started coming out of his seemingly shell-shocked state and started babbling and smiling at us. Since then, he has been showing us more and more of his personality. He likes to makes noises with toys- not interested in stuffed animals- he likes to bang stuff on the table.

We all went to bed at 8:00pm last night and slept well. Today we are taking it easy and will probably do a little shopping.

Here are some pictures of our first day together. Ashley also posted some on his site, see changing the past under my friends and family link.

    He is beautiful. I hope you have a peaceful time there and enjoying getting to know one another. How is Ava doing? Is Binh sleeping much? Adjusting to you well? (I know it’s only been a day!) Miss you!

    Lovely shot of you both; great smile and gaze of wonder, char, and cute to see Binh’s fingers around the bottle. Also, good framing for a photo – the restaurant behind, and alley with tree to the right conveys spaciousness and the sense of a place, so familiarity and foreignness! Very happy for y’all…
