Home at Last

We are finally home in Austin, after spending a very pleasant overnight in San Jose with George and Nancy. It was nice to have a good home-cooked meal and a reasonably good night's sleep in a real bed. Our trip from San Francisco to Austin today was relatively uneventful. Dada is about as good as you can expect any baby to be on an airplane--she fussed a bit on takeoff and landing and got a little squirmy at times, but she slept a good part of the trip, both from China to San Fran and from San Fran to Austin.

She is now sleeping soundly in her own crib in her own room. We are pretty jetlagged but hopefully a good night's sleep will go a long way towards correcting that.

The entry into the States was pretty easy--we went through the "New Imigrants" line and the dude did whatever he was supposed to do with all our sealed imigration papers without too much trouble, except for a brief moment when he realized that somehow Peggy had gotten mixed up with Julie in some list he was looking at. But we remembered Peggy's birth date and that seemed to be sufficient to clear it up. If I understand the process, we should get some sort of certificate of citizenship in the mail at some point, whereupon I assume we can apply for a Social Security number and a passport for Dada.

Now it's time for bed. Tommorrow will be "baby proofing for real" day....
