We finally made it home!!!!

After 40 hours of travel we finally made it home yesterday around 11:00am. Our flight out of Hong Kong was delayed due to electrical problems and we arrived in LA about an hour later than scheduled. Then after the extra time spent going through customs we missed our connection. So....rather than spend the night in LA and get home Tuesday night, we opted to take the red eye to Chicago, then a 9am flight from Chicago to Arkansas. So, we made it back home yesterday before noon....and we were SO tired. Ana Kate did very well considering the circumstances. She slept for most of the short flights and slept on and off on the long flight. She only had one crying spell on the long flight, but it didn't last too long. Doug was able to sleep most of yesterday and last night, but I'm still trying to catch up. Ana Kate took several naps yeterday, but managed to sleep most of the night (of course I has to give her a bottle 5 or 6 times during the night)....but I think she is adjusting to the time zone change already. She was up and ready to go around 7:30 this morning. I will try to take some pictures today and post them later.

Welcome home!!! Seems like the traveling was a big ordeal, I bet you are happy to be home. I am glad Ana Kate was a big girl and was on her best behavior.

I'd love to see her soon!
