I never did finish up...

...those last few days in Utah and the trip home. It is now almost 3AM and its one of those nights I just can't sleep. So, you'll have to bear with me through this long travel log, but I've included many fine photos of the bambina to help it pass quickly...

Lets start off with our last days in Utah...my cousin brought over some dress up clothes and I just couldn't resist. I know...its the kind of thing you promise yourself you'll never do to your own child, but seriously...isn't she just the cutest fairy/angel...







That wouldn't stop eating the flowers?



And the most happy...



er...grumpy princess?



After we left Utah we went back to Las Vegas and stayed with my friend Ilaria...I won't post pictures of her and her family because I don't know how they feel about that, but her daughter was so intrigued by Bella. She saw Bella gumming my finger and asked what it felt like. I had her wash her hands so she could try it. Bella started to suck on her little finger then promptly burped on her hand. It was quite amusing.

We ended up in Tucson the next day at the hotel with Mr. Chucklehead.



It was so good to be almost home and especially good to be with him. He and Bella bonded over bathtime...



And tv time...



And a walk around town...



And a sushi dinner...



And while mama colored her hair...



Before we headed back we all had to go see the "coolest plane ever" on the Airforce base.



And finally, at 6AM I headed out with this glorious sunrise to greet me...



And TAAAAAADUM! I'm done! No more travel log...I'm back to the day to day grind now...

Aurora is still talking about Bella sucking on her finger. :) It was great seeing those two little girls together. I'm SOOOOO glad you stayed with us!! Sorry for keeping you up so late... Oh, and post whatever pix you want. In fact, that would be great because I never get around to post mine, and so that way I'd get to enjoy yours (...and I'd have an excuse not to stress about mine...). :) Ciao belle! Ci mancate tanto!!!

Eat your heart out, Anne Geddes! These pictures rock! :)

By the time you reach Germany, I do believe your daughter will be the best-travelled baby on the base! :) I'm jealous
