Transitions











Well all I can say is that the jet lag coming back from China is horrible. No. Horrible is too nice of a word. Yesterday I felt absolutely wretched, I think we are all starting to feel a bit more human today but we have a ways to go. It makes it harder with Grace and William adjusting to the time change at different paces. We've been trying to spend a lot of time outdoors in the sunshine to adjust and William is an outside boy! He's checked the entire yard out, played in the little playhouse, tried out several of the neighbors' swingsets and sandboxes and met some new friends. He can be quite afraid with strangers(which is good) and doesn't transition well to changes like getting out of the bath, diaper changes, numerous other ones to mention. Our little guy has only been with us 2 weeks and has been through so much. Tomorrow is his first appointment with the pediatrician so that will be interesting. The pictures above were taken this morning. It really is good to be home!

He looks very happy!
Take 1 day at a time. Jet lag is so bad, so bad. I'm exhausted just thinking about it.
Get rest when you can.

The jet lag is so so terrible. Rest and do not do anything that doesn't need to be done!

William looks like he is enjoying his new backyard. Love the smiles.

Hope Grace is adjusting to her big sister role.

Just look at that precious little man!!! I know you must be in love. Jet lag is a horrid thing. The sunlight is great for you. Take it easy and enjoy the many firsts with Will. Hugs to you all!

(((HUGS))) I'm sure the rainy weather and storms today didn't help w/getting the sunshine and being able to get out of the house. Maybe it missed you. :)

I hope that everything went well today.

Take it easy my dear friend. Jet lag coupled with the fact you have a new member in your family who is TWO...is tough work.

(((HUGS))) Let me know if you will be at swimming tmw. I'll come in early to chat w/you.

He does look really happy Gail. I can only imagine the jet lag. I've only been as far as Europe and I thought that was bad.

Hi, I just found your blog through Verna. Not sure how I missed it!! Your children are just beautiful. We've been home for 6 months now. I SOOOO remember that jet lag after coming home. It was unbelievable. It took me TWO weeks to really get over it! I hope it's not that long for you. I'm looking forward to catching up on the rest of your blog.
