We arrived home on Sunday afternoon. Our little guy is doing pretty well. I’m just not sure if his nighttime waking schedule is because of jet-lag or his usual routine. He has been going to bed about 7pm the last two nights, waking up in the middle of the night for a bottle (somewhere between 10pm and 2am), then getting up for the day about 4:45am. Yes, I said 4:45am. I need to push his bedtime back an hour or two, but he is so tired at 7pm, it’s difficult to keep his eyes open. And I don’t want him to be overly tired when I put him to bed.
He did pretty well on the plane ride home, too, sleeping in the bassinet for about 6-8 hours of our flight. When we arrived in Newark, we had to stay overnight in a hotel because our connecting flight was not until Sunday. He was awake most of that night, but I kind of expected that. We did have a travel snafu in Newark. Because we had changed our plans to get an earlier flight home, the Continental flight was changed as well. But the Continental computer system was not showing that our tickets with EVA had been synchronized and re-issued. So the supervisor at the check-in counter was telling us, in his oh-so-friendly New Jersey accent, that we did not have tickets and could not get on that flight. Fortunately, we had contacted our travel agent about this possible problem before going to the airport and he was able to get it straightened out with Continental.
