Bob recorded the surprise welcome on video - you will see us arriving on the left escalator:
We are so thankful to be together as a family at last! Zander turned 14 months on Thursday and continues to become more comfortable with Mommy and Daddy, our home, yard, neighborhood, and car, as well as the differences in food, language, and (still working on this one) timezone! We celebrated his milestone with lots of play, which, in combination with the significant schedule changes, resulted in Zander's first time passing out at the dinner table!
Today was a big social outing for Zander - we went to a barbecue at friends Tim and Kate's house. Zander had a great time - a big nap on the drive over and during the early part of the festivities followed by a lot of exploring and playing - he even got to meet some friends younger than him. He wore his stylin' new dinosaur onesie that was a gift from Bob & Heather. Here he is with Daddy and fellow UCLA/Anderson alums Tim (with Quinn, 5 months) and Erica:
Zander enjoyed some yummy dishes from Brasa Rotisserie - yams, chicken and pork. The other big highlight was playing on the slide:
