Monica's Chinese Phrases: Take 2!

First off, Reese KaiJin is doing awesome. She's adorable, a little stinker, and not a morning person. My aunt and uncle came home last night to live with us for a little while, and she loves my aunt (my grandma debbie's daughter) as much as she loves Grandma Debbie. And they brought a cat so they must be really awesome. :)
