Let's talk about Jonathan, the 2 month old.
He did pretty well and slept a lot. Only issue was he had so much spit outs and explosions that we ran out of his clothes in the diaper bag. I was carrying a poopy baby while derrick tries to collect all the luggage from the conveyor. And had to stop all eager folks from hugging or carrying him, since the pooopy boy had poop leaking out staining his clothes.
Emily, Emily, Emily... where should I even start?
At seattle airport security check, she was winning folks' smiles with her duper cute elmo sunglasses. But she burst into loud wails of "MY GLASSES!!!!", when we grabbed her sunglasses to put onto the conveyor for the security check.
Later, she had fun at the airport playground, but turned into a wailing mess when we gate checked her stroller.
After the plane took off, she went on her crazy mode. By then, it's 1am, way past her 10pm night time. She proclaimed loudly "I'm done, let's go home" The 2 of us can't helped but laughed at her. I definitely sensed folks sitting around us also smiled at her statement. It's cute and darn honest statement a 2 yr old can give you, makes you want to hug them hard and make everything right for them.
Finally, let's just say her fleece pink pajamas is a shade grey by the time we arrived in Singapore and that she pretty much did
The 2 superhumans also known as parents
We been up since 7am to do all the packing and by 1am when we board the flight, we were exhausted already. And to think we had to last another 24hrs. It' definitely been a challenge trying to pack while taking care of 2 kiddos.
Will we do it again?
Most definitely! This is home to us. We been away for 2 years and I haven't seen my family for that 2years. It' really hard.
Derrick definitely teared up when he was eating chicken rice for lunch. Grandparents playing with the kids, kids were happy, the 2 tired parents get to eat chicken rice that's cheap and bought. Yeah, back in Seattle, having chicken rice is a lot of work, since we had to prep, cook and wash.
