The trip to Seattle was surprisingly easy. Five months old, ten hours of airports/airplanes, and e-baby took it all in stride. She even flirted with many middle-aged businessmen and probably could have talked any one of them out of a college fund if she wanted to.
Mom met us at baggage claim (her flight from Austin landed about an hour earlier) and we headed off in our Bugsy Mallone-mobile for PIC's house. Which took 2 hours because of a closed road and a crazy detour. So by the time we reached PIC's house, e-baby wanted some DINNER! But then she was OK again. She slept that night from 8pm until 5am. I was up at 3:30. The next night she slept until 6:30. I was up at 5. It's funny to me that the baby adjusted to Pacific coast time in one night, and I still haven't quite made it.
c-baby developed a little bit of conjunctivitis, and I'm not sure whether e-baby has caught it or not. Just in case, I had her dr. prescribe a tube of eye-gloop that I'll use if the watery eyes turn into green gobbies.
Since we've been here, e-baby and c-baby have been bonding. They're going to be best-cousins. We hit Pike Place Market on Wednesady and visited the Best Music Store Ever. e-baby picked out a few musical instruments that she can grow into and a few shakers that she can use now.
c-baby is the cutest little slip of a thing you've ever seen. You already know this if you've gone to look at the pictures. I have some more terrific pictures and videos which I'll upload to YouTube when I get home.
