Tesla loving the beach
These are from our last day in Hawai'i. Tesla loved playing at the beach, making a mess with the sand, and fearlessly walking into the deeper waters. Other than simply having luxury vacation time as a family, the best was seeing Tesla grow so much from all the new experiences and stimulation.
The bummer thing was it was indeed quite hard having a toddler. As mentioned before, the flight over was rather hellish since Tesla freaked out and screamed so much that the nice lady sitting next to us actually put her finger in her ear. Once in Hawai'i, Tesla had a hard time napping so her sleeping schedule got messed up...which is still not back to normal. Also, it was very hard to "be" with each other since one of us had to run after to the ever mobile Tesla who wanted to explore all the time. The only meal we got to sit down and eat together with a conversation was when we hired a babysitter.
On the way home, to be honest, we gave Tesla a tiny bit of baby medicine that would help her sleep. I had mixed feelings about this, but it helped her chill out. Without that, we would have been a nervous wreck.
We came back Thursday at 6am, and I went to work at 10. And that very evening, my good friend Deborah came to stay with us over the weekend from Washington. So it's been non-stop and I finally just finished washing our vacation clothes! Although super busy, it was a fun weekend, meeting up with Kimi (all 3 of us went to ASIJ), then a nice dinner at the Slanted Door with our neighbors, and a Japanese dinner at home with Deborah. We watched a Frontline documentary on funerals last night, and ended up sobbing and bonding together. We made Dav watch a silly happy movie with us to end the evening on a lighter note. Deborah is working on a special project, and I hope to hear how it goes by early next year. Yay!!
And just now, I got a text message that dear Ele is in the hospital on her way to become a mommy!! With the holidays coming up, life is full! : )
