My trip home was fantastic! And now I am in serious withdrawal…I miss the kids, I miss the weather, and I really miss my sister.
She is an absolute doll – tiny by our family standards. She was only 7 lbs, 4 oz when she was born, but the same length as Caleb (20″)!
It seems he is adjusting really well to having Mila around. I could tell while I was there was right about the time it was starting to sink in that she wasn’t going to “go away”. Poor guy. He had a couple melt-downs, but mostly I think he was overtired…we did a lot of running around and visiting folks while I was there and he didn’t get a very good nap most days.
The real heart-breaker was having my sister text me the other day telling me that he has asked for me. I really wish airfare would come back down to Earth so I could plan more trips home each year (or have them come out this way). Hopefully next spring we will be able to work out a big family trip to the beach with my mom, Amy & Nick, the kids, and Neil (and the dogs)…we’ll see!
