We're taking it slow this time. That is, if ten hours of driving in one day can be considered "taking it slow." I'm still not sure how we did it in two-and-a-half days last weekend.
We're really doing great. Baby Essie is wonderful (and gained weight at her check-up before we left. Yay!). And I'm pretty sure it's a powerful combination of grace and adrenaline that's getting us through. And videos. Not sure how parents survived before portable DVD players.
Nursing is still going well, although I can't wait to be able to do it while just relaxing on my couch. So far I've breastfed in two restaurants and one church. And I'm sure that tally will only go up over the course of the week.
We just pulled off the highway because it was snowing, and thankfully we got one of the last hotel rooms in town. Now the kids are running around our spacious room, acting a little nutso. We're hoping they wind down sometime before 2 a.m. (our expectations are very low lately).
Before I go, here are some scenes from our trip home so far, taken with my phone. Anyone recognize the house in the last one (hint - it was taken in Albuquerque)?
