Finally. We're here, in the states. We've been back for about a week now and are visiting my in-laws for a couple of weeks before we head up north to visit my parents.
The trip was long. 32+ hours of airports and airplanes... and Clara was nothing short of an angel the whole entire time. I couldn't have asked for a better behaved baby. ;) It really made the trip that much easier. She was a little cranky the first couple days after we got back, but I expected that. It was a long trip and I figured it would catch up with her sooner or later. That, and she's teething. Bless her heart.. she has 2 more coming in on the top.
And we are all finally over the jet-lag. Only took a week for Clara to get back on her schedule.
I can't even tell you how GOOD it feels to be in America. There are no words. And to see our family and friends. And see our beautiful niece.. (SO fun to see her and Clara together!)..
I hear that a lot of little kids hate the grass when they first feel it. Not Clara! She LOVED it. She was pulling on it, crawling around... just adoring the fresh air and green grass. And of course, she tried to eat it.
We had a fun time watching her 'discover' grass.. something she's never experienced before. And she enjoyed watching the puppies walking by... and the barges on the river...
I want to take her there again this week.. and perhaps next time we'll pack a lunch!
