At Last

Ben’s flight came in after midnight last night (he was supposed to arrive at 10:30!), and we finally got home around 2:30. He had promised Anika that he would wake her up when he got back, and give her a big hug. She could hardly wait, and she sleepily greeted him with the news that Kaylia walked for the first time yesterday! She wanted to be the first to tell him.

Kaylia was very unsure about Ben at first. She let him hold her, but it took a little while for her to start acting her usual self around him. By the time he needed to leave for breakfast this morning, she was in his arms and waving good-bye to me!
