26 and a half hours after we lifted off from Hanoi, we finally landed in Cincinnati.  Our return trip took us through Tokyo (six hour layover) and Chicago (thankfully we missed the winter storm).  Throughout the three flights home, Anelise was great.  She slept, ate and played quitely her way through the entire return journey. 

Last night was a rough one though as Anelise was not interested in sleeping at all.  Her sleep schedule is 12 hours off of ours here so it will take a little while to help her adjust.  We are slowly introducing her to her crib since the current sleeping arrangement (she slept with us in Vietnam) is not a long term solution. 

Today we are all feeling rather tired and out of sort.  Everyone took a long afternoon nap that helped and I think we will all feel better once we have a few days home under our belt. 

We are thankful to finally be home with our new daughter.  We look forward to introducing you all to her in the coming weeks.  Give us a call if you want to come for a visit so we can be sure Anelise is up and dolled up for your meeting!

Welcome Home
So glad to hear you made it home safe. I guess your family will need to work shifts until she gets on a normal day night schedule. Keep posting pictures of the baby. We don't need to see anymore of you.

Welcome home.
