Home

We made it. HOME. Got home last night at about 1am and to our surprise Daddy AND Grandpa (or Ba Ba as Lily calls him now) were waiting for us at the airport. The trip went pretty well yesterday but for the record...
1. Lily does NOT like fruit snacks. Huh. I thought they were baby crack.
2. Little people books about the zoo with a million flaps to lift up are the greatest invention ever.
3. So are slinkies.
4. If you put your chair all the way back even before we take off and are sitting in front of a two year old and huff and puff and give dirty looks to her Mama who is getting kicked and scratched and her hair pulled because she is trying so hard to keep your chair from being kicked well you almost deserve to have your chair kicked.
5. Chivalry is not dead-at least if you are in the military. At the check-in at the airport Matt saw a woman struggling to move her very heavy bags while carrying a small child and went over to help her...while everyone else stood watching. And a very special thank you to the soldier who saw that I was struggling and carried my carseat to the bathroom so I could change Lily's diaper, waited outside for me, then walked me back to my gate. You rock sir.
6. Bj said it best in one of the emails he sent me while I was gone..."I feel homesick without you, as though my home is wherever you are." I have never been so glad to be home.

Welcome Home! I have it on good authority that your husband missed you dearly and was counting down the minutes until you came home! Congrats to you and your family on the arrival of Bridget!

I hope Lily is feeling much, much better. I'm glad you're back in Ohio with her daddy and baba.

I'd be in heaven if I could have stayed half as long as you did! It was so good to see everyone, and dance and play and wait for Bridget.
