We gave him a small carved chess set I had bought in China, and the grandparents gave him a card with $10. He opened it and said "Wawww", which apparently means "wow!" When we got home, we asked him what he thought on Google Translate, and he said "he liked". He also got a chance to meet my cousin (bao jie) and her boyfriend.
Sunday was church; I had bought silk shirts for the boys and had hoped they would wear them; both my boys looked so handsome! NingNing won't believe he is nice-looking; always putting himself down, avoiding pictures if he can. Even though I know he couldn't possibly understand a lot, he really seemed to pay attention when the sermon was going on. For lunch, we met with a Caucasian friend who speaks Chinese. He came out, said Ni Hao to NingNing and proceeded to converse in Chinese; NingNing's eyes got huge and he was speechless for a minute, then he joined in.
The conversation turned to sports and NingNing said he wasn't sure about doing basketball because he really wanted to concentrate on his English and doing well in school. I thought it would be really good for socialization, but we won't push it if he really doesn't want to.
