In the dark, anyone?

Okay... I fear no one will read this, now that we're home. We arrived tonight at 6:15. It was a hellacious trip. I'm not even kidding. The first two weeks were easy peasy and this past 28 hr travel from Guangzhou to Tokyo to Minneapolis to Nashville really put my humanity to the test. Actually, probably more accurately - my spirituality. :) This is a quick note to say that I was doing too much shopping and eating to blog, and if anyone wants to follow this at all, I promise to post pictures soon! Like, tomorrow! AND.... If you have happened upon this blog, you've wondered where I went. I was in the dark, too b/c I couldn't see any of our comments....Baby girl has a fever and is hot and sweaty. Pictures tomorrow. xoxoamy

I didn't know you were in China!!! You forgot to post to the Music City Miracles!!! No matter... I found out anyway! Nan Leiderbach told me at a party tonight, and then forwarded me your email where you put the blog address. Oh Amy! She's GORGEOUS! And your gotcha day looked to be picture perfect!!! I'm so happy for you, Troy and Dodger!!! Congratulations, friend, and what an incredible Christmas you have had!

In Amazement!

Totally understand. Yes, I will keep reading your blog.

Traveling around the world isn't easy with a baby (and a young son). I thought I was going to pass out or go crazy or something.

When I got off of the plane I spoke to a dear friend of mine and I commented to her, " You didn't tell me about the trip home being the worst day of my life." She said, " No one tells you about the episiotomy either."

Get as much rest as you can. Try to take lots of pictures right now. I only have like one of our first days at home because I thought I would never come to the land of the living. I regret not having more photos of that time period, even if it was hard.

Happy getting everyone back on the right time schedule. Email me if you need suggestions.

Welcome home...aaah yes, those long haul flights are AWESOME! We flew back from China and Piper screamed for 2 hours solid, then did not sleep a WINK until we got to San Fran. Then on a trip this March to New Zealand she slept 1.3 hours in a 30 hour period...and only 2.5 hours on the way back ugh!

I'm so glad to hear you got home okay, scarred but okay!

Cant wait to see pictures of your little girl.
