Trippin' With the Baby, VI

Greetings from Israel. We made it, BH.

The Baby was great. She slept about 5 hours altogether. First, she fell asleep in the bassinet but only slept for about an hour. Then, for another hour or so, she was loony, not knowing what to do with herself, very tired but unable to fall asleep. Finally, she fell back asleep on MHW's lap and after an hour we transferred her back into the bassinet. The good news is that when she was awake, she was very well behaved, smiling and playing most of the time.

All in all, a very manageable flight. (Having flown to Israel in business class the last couple of times, I am a totally spoiled brat at having to have sat in the back of the bus but I'll get over it.)

Last night we had dinner with Aron Razel, his wife, Efrat, and their three adorable boys (all 4 years old or younger). The food was great but the retaraunt was very noisy and it was difficult to have a conversation. Of course, the Baby and Aron's two older boys playing drums on the table with chopsticks or whatever else they could get their hands on may have had something to do with it.

The best news is that the Baby slept through the night (with one feeding). In fact, it's after 9 a.m. and she's still sleeping. This bodes well for the rest of the trip. Unfortunately, MHW didn't sleep through the night. When the Baby got up at 4 a.m. that was it for MHW. She said that she couldn't get back to sleep because the guy next to her was snoring. I find that very difficult to believe but since, like George Washington, MHW would never tell a lie, it must be true.

We're about to go shopping for Shabbos so I will sign off for now. Good Shabbos to all.
