Mackenzie Day 5

Today is a travel day, so today’s post will be light on words. You’re welcome.
We went shopping in the Muslim quarter yesterday, and got some fun trinkets, and everywhere we went little M drew people to her like bees to honey. They would touch her, and tell her she was lucky, and many shop owners would give her a little trinket, for luck and prosperity. It was sweet, but sometimes a little unnerving, as well, to have a crowd all in your space trying to touch your baby and hold her.

Little M was very curious about all the packing going on:

We went to a dumpling banquet for dinner, and she LOVED her some onions!
Eating marinated onions. She likes veggies

While we were looking for something to cut the dumpling up, she helped herself to the whole thing!
She stuffed a whole dumpling in while we were distracted

    That dumpling picture reminds me of my daughter. She will stuff food in her mouth like there's no tomorrow. I agree that Little M has such cute clothes. Gotta share where you got them! Enjoy the next leg of your journey.

    Though John and I are these days (1 wk till the move!) running around like chickens with our heads cut off (seen any of those in Chinese markets? *grin*), I'm hanging on your every word — thank you for the frequent updates! I cannot WAIT to meet that scrumptious little girl and get my hands all over her too, just like the other strangers! Tell her to get used to it because I'm going to shower her with love!! :-)Love you guys!
