Sweetie's First Visit Home

What a whirlwind weekend! I am pretty sure that going to Disney this past weekend was a mistake, Oh well... you live you learn! The hot weather and the sensory overload was a bit too much for our visit this past weekend. Unfortunately, time at Disney World itself was not really that great. The times that were great were the simpler moments, swimming together in the pool, or cuddling in bed rubbing Sweetie's arms as she feel asleep each night. I am happy to say that after a very long ride home we are adjusting well to home life.It is a much quieter pace than what we experienced last weekend. The rest of the week we have laid low. Tuesday we went to the pool, did some chores and then Sweetie made a cake and helped make dinner for Cris. 
She did a great job on the cake! She decorated it with Popcorn and Red said I Love You Papi. 
Wednesday we just hung out around the house.
Thursday we went shopping and painted Sweeties Bathroom Lime Green and Bright Purple.
Friday we went to Mrs. Amy's house for ice cream sundaes and to hang out with Hollister and the babies.
Then last night we went to music at the pond in our neighborhood. 
This week was a big change, like expected. Sweetie is non-stop energy. And like most kids her age she is "bored" all the time. Even at Disney World...but I know she had a good time. 
We got up at 3am today and did a round trip down to Florida and back to drop off Sweetie. It was really hard on her this time. Before I went to bed around midnight I checked in on her and she was in her room sobbing. It was so heartbreaking. This has got to be so scary for her. I just held her and rocked her on my lap. Until she calmed down, then we played with her barbies for a little while. She did well on the ride. Since she didn't sleep much last night, she slept a lot of the ride down. We miss her already!

    I bet Cris is equally phenomenal Dad.
    I wish all three of you, from the bottom of my heart- all the best!
