“There’s No Place Like Home”

We had our first trip to Kansas since Mallorie was born.  Mallorie did far better than I expected.  Actually, other than screaming in the car she was actually much easier than the twins were at her age.  She never cried for naps, just went to sleep.   We did have a “MAJOR” diaper blowout on the plane & Ellie puked on the plane.  Audrie puked in the car…but other than that it was smooth sailing.


I’m happy to report the trip may have been just what Mallorie needed…she no longer cries in the car.  And most of the time she is a pretty relaxed baby.  She entertains herself for long stretches, naps well, and sleeps all night.  I can’t complain.


Here are the girls on the tire swing at Uncle Bret & Aunt Chelle’s.  The bond that my girls have with their cousins Madi & Molly is so neat to see.  They just love them to pieces!  In fact since we’ve been home, Ellie has cried several times because she misses them:-(

The girls thought it was pretty awesome!
