Traveling Extravaganza

Friday, August 8, 2014

Liam and I have been nomads for the past month and a half. First we flew into Vegas to be at Zion Ponderosa for a family reunion, drove up to Salt Lake for a few days, flew to CT where Alex met us for a week, then Martha's Vineyard, back to Utah, off to CT, and then to Brazil. I was home for a total of 1 day before heading to a little island off of Recife called Fernando de Noronha with two of my sisters, cousin Katie, and my dad. Got back for another day, then headed out for Foz de IguaƧu with the girls. WHEW. Yesterday I got back, and today has been all about unpacking and settling back into my favorite little abode.

So you see, Liam is an expert traveler by now. And he is a total champ considering his sleep schedule is still non-existent. Establishing that is my #1 goal this week, because I'm selfishly ready for some real sleep! By the way, my main regret is not having read up on this earlier and started right when he was born. Definitelyyyy learn from me.

Back to our extravaganza. Where do I begin? Being in the states was marvelous, as usual. I love driving there. It's actually calming. Also I love Costco. Oh how I love that place! Best of all, introducing Liam to everyone. My sisters are the best aunties, and thanks to willing babysitters Alex and I snuck in a couple dates.

There are so many things I miss about living in the U.S., but this trip made me realize again how blessed we are to have this opportunity in Brazil. And I can really say that I genuinely enjoy it here and for now, it feels like home. Seeing my husband is pretty great too. I really hate being away from that guy.

Here are a few favorites:

Blessing day


  1. Such a handsome little guy! I know EXACTLY what you mean about the need for real sleep and I too wish I would've read up more on sleep training before having a baby. Oh well, live and learn! At least the rest of our children will get on a schedule sooner. :)

  2. I am so glad you had a great time! Little Liam is getting so big. I love all the pictures!
