We are home !!

It is great to be home! The flight was long. I did not sleep much because I was so afraid that Mia was going fall off her seat. She is a very active sleeper. We took the airport shuttle home from Chicago and hit Milwaukee around 10:15pm. Our first stop was Taco Bell. I was so happy to see Dave and the kids. They were so excited to see Mia. We stayed up until 1 am going through the suitcases looking at all the souvenirs. Mia and I fell asleep until 5am. Today has been a long day -but we have taken a nap. I hope to keep her up until bedtime.
Within 7 hours of returning home Madeline had Mia smiling and giggling. They play a game with a ball and it cracks Mia up. She is fascinated with the kids. She has smiled more today than she did while we were in China and her laughing episodes are good old belly-laughs which put a smile on all our faces.

Love to all-the Schmidts

Welcome home!

It was wonderful following your journey to Mia while you were in China. I look forward to reading more about the Waala family now that you're home!

Welcome home!!!!! I enjoyed following your journey and hope to meet you all one day. We had fun at Lifest - hope to see you there next year. I will probably only go one day. We'll see what life with 2 toddlers is like before we decide. :-)
