UPDATE: We made it back, and everyone is doing well. Still doing some Jet-lag adjusting, but things are good here in Japan. Also I added a new slideshow (mostly just Kai playing out in the back yard), and finally got those pictures of Kai Standing up. Just took another couple shots today of him up and on his feet for real, which seems to be the new cool thing for babies turning 9months old. I think we are going to see babysteps within 2 weeks. I guess we just have to wait and see, but the walking is definitely going to be soon, Kai can not wait any longer.
Well, we are just about ready to get up outta here, but it has been a lot of fun seeing everyone. We only have a few days left, as we will be leaving this Saturday the 11th (come take your goodbye pictures, and kiss Kai one more time before he returns with a girlfriend and a tattoo).
There were a few things we ended up doing while we were here, in order from semi-good, to semi-ridiculous: a trip to Atlantic City (Dad only, no physical evidence of us being there recorded, a.k.a. pictures/messes), eating pulled pork sandwiches, the parties, the swims in the lake, the baptism, and Kai standing all by himself for 20 FULL SECONDS.
