We've been here in Honolulu for 5 days, since December 26, amidst Rob's family. Nicole was able to meet many new cousins (two of them born this year as well), aunties and uncles. And us adults were able to indulge in a lot of good food. It's the holidays... the best excuse to eat!
Nic's yaya is on break, so it's up to Rob and me to take care of her. No, we haven't yet gone insane, and it's been really nice having her all to ourselves. Yes we do have our moments of "what the f*** do we do when she's having a meltdown?!?!?!?!?!?!?" but otherwise it's been really nice. The grandmas, aunts and uncles have taken turns carrying her and amusing her. It's fun watching them try to make her laugh. We do hope that there will be many opportunities for her to spend lots of time with the other members of her generation. Imagine the mayhem when they go out together when they're older!
All that said, it'll be nice to get back to familiar territory where it's comfy and cozy... my own unique place to rest my head and nestle... the place that, once I step inside, is home.
