warning. gratuitous baby cuteness ahead.

In case you couldn’t quite understand what Beckett was trying to say… We’ve had a busy day. We went for our medical exams (everything was super swell, though the doc says the little dude could stand to gain a kilo or two) and completed our interviews with immigration. We have requested embassy interviews on Monday, though we aren’t sure if we can get on the schedule, but our interviews will be sometime next week. We are heading to Hanoi at 2:00pm on Saturday, and look forward to having at least one full day to explore the city. The kidlet passports should be ready tomorrow morning and we plan to spend most of the day shopping.

We also learned that his Vietnamese name has a slightly different meaning than we thought. Apparently the Chinese definition of his middle name is fortress or dwelling, but in Vietnamese it means ‘green’. So, his Vietnamese name is ‘green dragon’. Pretty dang cool.

    Love that his name means green dragon, since there are several waiting in his nursery to greet him. Aunt Liz will be thrilled!
    That video is priceless . . . he is indeed “too cute”. Love to hear his little baby sounds. As for the needed kilo or two, I happen to know his new mom is a most excellent cookie baker, so that shouldn’t be an issue.

    I think I just ’emailed’ my “comment”. We are all enjoying the pictures and videos. Ty was facinated with ‘Baby Bec’ and wanted to watch it over and share his pizza. Can’t wait to get you all home for hugs. He is precious. I thought it was cute when you said he teared up when Ken left the room. Did his head get big??? Ha! Ha!

    Beckett the dragon had big sharp teeth,
    And spikes on top of him and scales underneath,
    Mouth like a fireplace, chimney for a nose,
    And realio, trulio daggers on his toes.

    With apologies to Ogden Nash.

    Can’t wait to hear more, Jessica. Beckett sounds like a complete doll. Well, as doll-like as a funky green dragon can be!

    He is absolutely beautiful. I can tell you are fitting into your “mommy role” perfectly. The pictures have been beautiful. Can’t wait to see you all when you come home.
