Visit recap

So, we're back and settled from our lovely, lovely weekend away. *sigh* Back to work.....

Isa actually slept for much of the flight home, which was a welcome relief. She did okay on the flight down, but it was so much more relaxing to not have to keep her entertained for the entire time.

We had amazing weather our entire time down in CA- sunny, high 60s or low 70s. Not so up here in Seattle. About 3 minutes before landing- BAM!- all the rooftops are covered in snow and it's swirling everywhere. Blech. Luckily, it was very localized and we didn't have any in our actual neighborhood.

Isa had her (late) 18 month appointment yesterday. Our MD forgot to give me the sheet with her actual measurements, so I'll give you those once the paper arrives, but she did jump up over the 25th percentile for height for the first time and remained steady around the 50th percentile for weight. Perfectly on track for all her developmental milestones and, as usual, she charmed the pants off everyone in the office! And, as usual, the trauma of the visit meant she took a 3 hour nap, which I appreciated.

Here are some more photos from our time in CA. I can't even express how much we love Porter and Elsa. It's so wonderful to find a kindred soul during the crazy adoption process and to then get the opportunity to visit them post-adoption, keeping the girls in touch, is priceless. I just wish we weren't a 2 hour plane ride away!

Adorable! And fabulous that both the mamas and the girls have each other. My daughter and I have similar relationships and they are priceless!!

It's a love festival! We love you two, and we love these photos!!!

We miss you guys already. Can't wait to see you at camp.

p.s. Elsa seems to have (at least temporarily) forgotten the word "no", which she learned courtesy of Isa B. We'll see how long that lasts! :0)

What fun! Your girl is ridiculously cute and I'm certain she charms the pants off of pretty much anyone she comes into contact with. I love that you, Porter and the girls are all there for each other.
