Jet lag seems SO much more tiring with an infant! While Crosby was a dream baby on the return flight back to the UK, the first few days/nights back in England were a bit rough. Truthfully they were probably more tiring for me and for Scott than they were for Crosby. We arrived home only to smell a terrible stench in the house - our freezer had gone bad. Who knows if it went bad while Scott was traveling in Europe before he came to America to meet us, or if it went bad during the week he was in the US. Either way, our house stunk and we were already exhausted from the journey to get back here before we had to deal with cleaning out the soupy freezer and work on the smell.
After Scott wrapped himself in a mask and kindly threw out the contents of our entire freezer, he headed into the office for the rest of the day, and I spent the remainder of the day trying to entertain a baby who was completely off schedule.
After dinner, I walked into our living room to find the two other family members here looking like this:
Jet lag struck the first night for sure! Unfortunately it's difficult to tell a baby not to sleep all afternoon so she'll sleep at night....so we had a wide awake Crosby at 1am on our hands the first night back.
After about four nights of a somewhat mixed up sleeping scheduling, Crosby seemed to get back on track and luckily she is now going back to sleep at 8pm which makes everyone in the house happy.
