What to pack?

We've been thinking of some very basic things we need to bring as well as leaving room for the items we're bringing to donate, but after seeing these pictures of Baby T, it seems some "gender appropriate" clothing may be in order!!!


Gotta love the pink sleeper covered in little hearts! Look at his face, he's just screaming, "Will somebody pleeeease take this off of me!!!" I wonder who his friend is?

A nice picture. First, because our sweet boy is in it, peering up at the camera from the bottom right corner; and second, because we can see him in relation to some other babies--it's hard to guesstimate sizes when he's the only one in the picture!

Here in Jakarta, it seems that pink/blue don't have as strong a gender id. We see little boys riding pink bikes and wearing pink and white striped shirts. After Sofia got a "boy" haircut, because I cannot speak Indonesian, everyone thought she was a male. Some days she would be wearing her pink flowered outfit and sparkly sneakers and people would ask what "his" name was!

I'm sure that your boy P will never let this happen! If I'm dying to hold this adorable boy, I can't even imagine how you must be feeling right now. You may not want to keep these pictures in his album, they may be used against him in various ways by various sisters in the future!

Beans just did a report tonight on Nellie Bly... do you know that that women wore one outfit to go around the world. In 1880 that took 72days,6hours,11minutes and 14seconds.I'm thinking he looks clean and comfortable.

It must be true that the "pink is for girls" and "blue is for boys" is an American notion based on other adoptive families and from JJ and the Jakarta crew. Isn't that funny then, that we have that so fixed in our heads while other countries don't even think about it at all...
