8 months

I am struggling with what to say. I don't want to be negative and whiny. I'm happy we made it to 8 months. But are we even halfway there? I just don't feel quite as excited at the 8 month mark as I did all the other month milestones. I need some good news to perk me up! (Unfortunately I don't think there is any for awhile yet.)

Wrapping up my trip down memory lane:

To answer the question about the jet lag, it wasn't nearly as bad as I expected! Like I said we got home Thursday, June 10, 2004, at 5:30 a.m. After our long ordeal, we actually felt energized once we got home. We thought "hey, maybe we can just stay up all day then, go to bed tonight at a normal time, and start getting our body clocks adjusted." Ha! By mid to late morning, I was more tired than I have ever been in my life! :-) That first day was rough. But by the end of the weekend, I think I was feeling pretty much back to normal. Lindsey was sleeping through the night within a week of being home so that helped. She had a bad cold when we first got home, Ben was sick, my MIL was sick, and the weather was cold and rainy. That didn't help with our adjustment at all! The whole first summer is a bit of a blur, and things got better and better after that.

So I'll be blogging in the present once again, waiting, waiting, waiting..........

Isn't he cute?

Have a great week everyone!

Hi Eileen!

It's been great reading your posts from the past! So, 8 months?!! Remember when we would congratulate each other on the anniversary of each month being LID?!! I can still congratulate you, we are getting closer, we just don't know how much yet!! ;-)

Oh, thanks for asking about my thumb...it's back to it's normal size again. No worries! :-)

Cute dog!

Waiting, waiting, waiting with you!

Thanks for the trip down memory lane....I would do about anything for a case of jet lag from a China trip about now. I'm sure you would too.

Thinking of you!

The peek-a-boo pup pic is perfect! We've been waiting 9 months now and I'm over the guessing game. I've checked in and out and off this roller-coaster ride. Your trips down memory lane are great for me to imagine. Thanks.
