Georgia

Well our Georgia trip started off with some drama yesterday. When we were boarding the plane, Kaija's loose tooth became caught on one of her backpack straps and ended up hanging by a thread!

So the whole plane ride Kaija is still as a statue slowly working on her tooth. She wouldn't even eat or drink - not even the little bag of skittles that came with the meal. Nazeriah and Chayton pass the plane trip very nicely without any major drama. Chayton is just such a happy baby. But thank goodness for my sling! It worked great to hold him in the seat but was very helpful when I nursed him; as i was on the aisle seat with an older man who definitely took up all of his seat.

We land at around 8:30 but after getting our luggage and rentacar (and only some major drama with Nazeriah as she crossed the street) it was 10:00 by the time we stopped for a real dinner. Mind you - Kaija has not eaten since lunchtime- and she still won't, but she is still working on that tooth!

Everyone falls asleep on the drive to Big Grandma's and are put right to bed. This morning, Chayton still wakes up at 7, but the girls sleep until 8 - yea!

Today was a fun day of playing, eating, and more playing. We did a couple of games of kickball (even got Nazeriah to run the bases in the right order) with me and Nazeriah on a team against daddy and Kaija; an impromptu water fight in the plastic pool; new flip flops and don't forget the sweet tea!!! What a great day. And Chayton got a lot of lap time and loves - although daycare has him on a better schedule with eating and sleeping and his nebulizer . . .

Right now the girls are cooking cookies for their tooth party - K's lost tooth and N's two loose teeth - and coloring with Big Grandma. While Chayton just fell asleep next to me on the bed. Aahh it's great to be a kid!
