A little shopping

Since today is Saturday we have no business to take care of so we ate breakfast and walked to the Beta which in a big mall, very modern and you'd almost think you were back in the US. Beck had a blast! There was loud music playing so he took the opportunity to dance in the huge atrium. Needless to say he has really come out of his shell. I know a few of you who read this have actually met him, but I will tell you, you would never believe this is the same little boy. He looks at everythihng, he points out things (his favorite appearantly are 'white machinas' (white cars), he sings, he dances, he is loving life! Last night he heard a car horn and yelled "HI!". He LOVED shopping, especially when he spotted a toy store... where he immediately picked out a white machina.
Unbelievably he seems to really understand me. Every time I ask him to do something he quickly figures it out. He is catching on incredibly quickly.
We had a successful bath this morning after the hotel supplied a baby bath. He didn't think too much of the shower.
Last night we had our first US embassy appointment which was a breeze. Cross your fingers that all other appointments go so well.
In other news we are all booked on our flight to come home to Boston on Friday August 31st at 5:00pm! Which is exciting enough, but more so since yesterday the flight was booked and my Mom hadn't gotten a seat! I just got called again and a seat had opened up, Thank GOD!
Well the Beck-ster and I are heading to the pool now. Miss you all!
