MengXuan (“XuanXuan”)

When MengXuan (“XuanXuan”) sees me come into the infant room, she murmurs “um, um” and raises her hands, asking for a hug.

When I pick her up, she gives me a big smile.  

Now a grown-up two years old, XuanXuan can stand up by holding onto the handrail beside the mirror. When I call her name, she walks towards me slowly and then throws herself into my arms.  

When she sees me distributing snacks, she crawls quickly to me and stands up with my help. Then she extends her hands to me and shouts “ah, ah.” As soon as I give her her snack, she puts it into her mouth quickly.
