Finally!!! Photos from our first day with Dean

Look at that smile!!!!! He has pretty much worn it ever since. Isn't he adorable?????? I still can't believe he walked in the door smiling.

Our first family photo, with the orphanage director and another orphanage employee.

He's eating one of the many pieces of candy sent by the foster parents! And yet, his teeth look great to me. He really likes to brush his teeth, so I guess they pumped him full of sugar then brushed. Not bad!

The radiant new father with his salt and pepper beard...getting saltier all the time. He never shaves on our adoption trips. Then he always has a style show for the kids when we return, shaving off a bit at a time so he has a goatee, then Fu Manchu, then mustache, then back to normal. We are all easily entertained, it would seem.

Such a pretty boy!

Here we are in the lobby of our hotel, the Crowne Plaza in Zhengzhou. It's very festively decorated for the Chinese New Year celebration that is in a couple of weeks.

Back in our room, looking through the photo album Miss Jenny Nai Nai sent from the orphanage. So adorable, hearing him tell me his friends' names.
