She's Arrived!

From Lizbeth An

Wow, how time flies once the little one appears. We are happy to announce our little Lizbeth An Greene arrived on May 20, 2010 at 7:56 PM. She was 50 cms long (19.5 inches) and weighed 3480 grams (7lbs 11oz). She has been a delightful addition to our family and we are all settling in well.

More pictures and updates to come!

Is Still Alive!

Just wanted to post a note that I'm still here. From a move and disconnected internet, to just plain pregnancy busy-ness, to a proxy that never wants to work-I haven't had access to my blog since my last post!

Today was my due date, and baby is still inside. We're waiting patiently (mostly). My mom arrived last week, we successfully moved into a new apartment, and I'm officially on maternity leave. Other than that no new updates!

I have new pics-I promise! But as it is already late and I REALLY need to get to bed, they'll have to come another day-hopefully I'll continue to have better access to Facebook and blogger until I get the chance!

A Few Things I Learned Today

1. When you finally have access through your proxy, take advantage. Just because it works right now doesn't mean it will tomorrow (or even in 30 minutes).

2. When a Chinese doctor tells you everything is normal, they just don't want you to worry. They may actually be concerned and surprise you two months later when they wan to run a bunch of tests. (Don't worry, everything looks like it's okay. This new doctor just seems to be more conservative.)

3. Every Chinese doctor is different. What one tells you the other might directly disagree with. However, it seems they all agree I'm about to have a big baby.

4. My baby girl is estimated to be well over 8 lbs already. I'm only 38 weeks.

5. Plane ticket prices change every 5 minutes.

6. Moving, trying to buy plane tickets to America, finishing work and grading, and having a baby makes a very complicated and busy few weeks. Jia you!

7. Just because someone is due well after you doesn't mean you'll have the baby first. Congrats Emily and Nathan!

8. Even at 25 years old, you sometimes just need your mommy. Only four more days!
