Home Again

We rejoined the ranks at casa de phillips on Saturday around noon. The flight home was uneventful, mainly due to the fact that there was one adult per child so no one was outnumbered(and because a family friend happened to be on the same flight and helped us situate all the luggage, stroller, and extra car seat into our car).

Although I love being at my parents' house, I am glad to resume our regular daily life. It will likely take a few days for things to be back to "normal" as Isaac and Evelyn no longer have multiple people to dote on them 24/7. Isaac went through Nanny and PopPop withdrawals on Saturday evening. At one point he laid on the floor, all limbs dramatically sprawled out, saying, "Poor Isaac." It could be a long week.

Here are a few more pictures of our week. I promise regular blogging will resume tomorrow once balance is restored and I can find the computer amidst half-empty suitcases and freshly folded laundry.

Evelyn and Isaac "rough-housing" on Isaac's makeshift Big Boy Bed

E's new skill--pulling up on EVERYTHING!

Playing Memory with PopPop

Post-Nap Ice Cream with Nanny
Friday evening Isaac went for a swim in Nanny's big bathtub. He wasn't too sure of the Jacuzzi effects at first, but then discovered jets of water shooting at oneself can be fun.

Home again at casa de phillips.
Although they appear to be playing together nicely, this scene quickly turned ugly. Isaac moved Evelyn's hand because it was not where he wanted it. She in turned screamed. Tobe and I reprimanded Isaac, who then decided he needed to place himself in time-out. Isaac calmly went and retrieved his time-out carpet, placed it in the hall, and then proceeded to cry loudly as he sat on it. Two is a hard age some days.
