Back in the states

We arrived in DC on Friday after a surprisingly easy flight. She didn't cry once! After 3 days (and lots of cranky moments) we have all finally adjusted to the new time zone. Readjusting to American culture will be a longer process. I assimilated to British culture much more than I had realized, but we are both very happy to be home where life makes more sense. Our first (somewhat comical) experience at being thrust back into American culture was our breakfast at a diner on Saturday morning. Nathan ordered a large orange juice, and we both ordered water. The waitress could barely carry the three drinks to the table--it was a trough of juice! We can't wait to see what movies we missed while we were away, as well as TV shows. I didn't used to be very into TV, but having a baby means a lot of sitting around. Genevieve is developing a personality more every day. It's fun to watch her learn. We're staying in a temporary furnished apartment until we find a permanent place and our furniture arrives from overseas. Tomorrow we have our first pediatrician appointment, and then on Tuesday we are flying to Atlanta, where I'll stay until July 16th.

Another interesting difference from England; won't be necessary for Vivi yet but you'll recall a professional known as a DENTIST. You might stop in yourselves as we americans like to visit every six months and you have to find a good one.(They're not all alike, another surprise about non-socialized medicine.) Just a few welcome home tips from your loving Uncle Joe.
