We survived the oh so LONG 5 hour and 15 minute flight from LAX to Anchorage with a really fussy, unhappy, teething girl! She was the most miserable I've probably ever seen her, next to a 103 fever she had at 10 months. I alternated between children's advil and tylenol every 2 hours and that's what got us through! Whew! It was so good to be on solid ground.
After a few recovery days spent at my parents we moved into Todd and Kim Hopkins' home where we are housesitting for the majority of our time here in AK. A few nights after moving in we heard some noise outside the house after Reese had gone to bed. We looked out the window to this awesome sight! I've never seen a calf this small with it's mama! And I've lived here many years. Matt and I couldn't pry ourselves away...it was so neat to watch this baby explore but all the while staying really close to it's mother. We think this calf was only a day or two old.
We've been able to enjoy a few days of glorious sun and warmth and when that happens we stay outside as long as we can!
Enjoying my siblings too...on this day Tom and Joe competed in a badminton game to see who got to eat the Moon Pie. Tom won! Joe's consolation prize was an apple strudel.
My sister Elise took this video of Reese. It's a little choppy and not edited but I thought it would be fun to get a glimpse of Elise and Reese together. :)
We're thankful to be here, basking in the slowness of life in the Last Frontier and waiting for when Allie decides to make her appearance. Today marks 37 weeks and Allie and I are considered full term! So thankful to be at this point without the concern of going too early to birth with the midwives.
