After Long Silence...

...I sheepishly return to greet my gentle readers! Assuming I still have some. I never intended to take a holiday from the blog, but here we are six weeks later! So for those of you who are still out there, thanks for checking in. :)
I can't possibly blog at length about everything that's happened in the last six weeks, but here are some highlights.
  • We went to Hawaii. It was awesome. The place we stayed on Oahu was loud and busy and if we were to do it again we only would've stayed a day - just long enough to see Pearl Harbor, which is what we went there for to begin with. Maui was just perfect. So, so relaxing. We were nowhere near ready to leave when the time came.
  • Mike and I took our first overnight trip away from Chloe last weekend and spent about twenty-four hours in Saugatuck. It was weird to be away from her, great to have a break, and good for Mike and I to get that time together, but we did miss her. :) It's pretty different to have a whole conversation together beginning to end without a baby present.
  • Chloe is crawling! She's not so quick yet, but she's able to toodle around to where she wants to go. We're still learning that w have to put things up when we're done with them.
  • She's also teething, and not really sleeping so much. Her upper right front tooth just cut through yesterday! Pretty exciting stuff. She unfortunately seems to be having a much rougher time getting these teeth than the last two, and has been incredibly grouchy in the last few days, as well as waking up at night screaming - something she never does. I'm pretty tired. :)
  • Along those lines, she just woke up early from her afternoon nap (akkkkkk...), so it looks like this list is going to have to be even shorter than I'd intended! As far as adjustment goes, suffice it to say that as good as it is to be back, it's WEIRD. Familiar things are still familiar, but their very familiarity makes them seem unspeakably foreign right now. We're settling in and rebuilding our life here, but it really is going to take some time.
The Unhappy One is demanding some attention, so I guess that's it for now! I promise it won't be another six weeks before I post again. :)

Woohoo!! Welcome back to the world of blogging, Meiks. I was so excited to see a new post. Love the pics. Samara is most likely standing up in her crib right now... I hear her yakking away... She's probably sensing that I just saw super-cute pics of her friend... Oh, and guess what? For S's birthday, Becca got her the same outfit she got for Chloe. They can be twins!!! :) too excited...
