We made it! After a 14 hour delay, the eagle took off headed for home. We arrived home on Friday night, exhausted but VERY happy!! The delay turned out to be a great thing for us because many of the first class passengers made alternative arrangements, which led to plenty of room in first class for our upgrade to be processed. The flight was fantastic. R&B had a bassinet to share, we had seats that opened into flat beds and the entire crew visited us frequently to hold the babies and check out our lovely babies. Lee and I find it amusing that at 11 days old, R&B have passports, Onepass numbers and 7,500 miles traveled in a manner most only wish about. If you are returning from India with babies and can swing the upgrade, it is well worth the extra money! (be sure to just pay for an upgrade and don't buy first class seats, much better deal).
Once home, R&B were greeted by a few new faces....
Grandma G. and Brady
Aunty Amy and Rooney
Uncle Jeff and Brady
Both babies lost their umbilical cords this past weekend, so we gave them their first baths. I expected many tears, but they both loved it. My mom thinks they may be future swimmers, but I think it might have something to do with their home for the past few months!
It was a bit sad to leave India not knowing when we will return, but there truly is nothing better than being at home with our babies! R&B have made us unbelievably happy and now that we are stateside, we can't wait to introduce them to so many of our friends and family!
