Has it really almost been five years since we moved to Switzerland? Seems like many lifetimes ago.

Feeling this. Feeling the distance.

it’s one of those things you anticipate all year, then passes so quickly, even if you are, in the very moment, trying so desperately to make things slow down.
we are home from our three week adventure in the States. The distance seems to grow greater with each trip we take—though 6,000 miles always remains 6,000 miles, the distance stretches and expands and permeates my own physical sense of self [see homesickness].
I wasn’t quite ready to say goodbye.

This little lady was 11 months on the 8th (we are a tad late…)! She’s a mover and a shaker, likes to crawl, stand, and climb on things and people. She loves animals, her stuffed Lion (whom she gives besitos to on command), saying ‘heyyyyyy!’ to strangers, and kissing 7 year old Norwegian boys on airplanes. This girl eats twice as much as me for breakfast, and now has a sweet tooth thanks to grandpa C and his maple syrup antics. She despises the potty, clingy people, airplane changing tables (who doesn’t?), sitting still, avocado, and when you take anything away from her i.e. a pair of scissors out of her hands or a bug out of her mouth. She has four teeth, a bit more hair, and a HUGE personality. #violetmae #swissviolet

It has been FOUR YEARS since we have celebrated our 4th of July birthdays together. Looking forward to doing it again this Friday (with both of our babies in tow!).
Love you D!
Mama friends! We are flying across the Atlantic (and across the USA) [Switzerland—>California] with an 11 month old on Wednesday. While we have made the jump across the pond with her before, this is a whole new baby who needs constant entertainment, likes to be mobile, and doesn’t go into milk-induced comas anymore (and I can only feed her so much baguette!).
WHAT SHOULD I DO/BRING/TAKE/DRINK to make this flight as painless as possible? Any suggestions would be so appreciated!
