On the spur of the moment, we went to Orlando, thanks to Gong-Gong and Lau-Lau.  During the flight over, our section of the plane was so hot that Mei-Mei spent the entire flight in only her diaper.  Both kids didn't do very well in the heat and humidity once we arrived, in fact PJ spent most of the time playing in the hotel suite and its enclosed balcony rather than being outside.  The mandatory trip to Disney World was planned for Monday, but heavy rain and lightning forced us to post-pone until the next day.  Unfortunately, I had to fly back (alone) for work, so I missed out.  Em had a brilliant solution for dealing with the time change, ignore it.  Specifically, we stuck to our west coast schedule by putting the kids to bed at 11 pm eastern time and having them get up around 10 am eastern time.

 

Nap with Grandpa

Mr Peej and I lay down for our nap. He rustles, is in some distress, calls for Mama, even points toward the foot of the bed, or the next room where she sometimes sleeps when she's here. He kicks his legs over the side of the bed. His eyes are still closed.

I just hold him, bring his feet back onto the bed, tell him everything is all right. In a short while, he subsides, goes back to sleep.

Wakes again, thrashes a bit, I hold him again, soothe him. I see his eyes once or twice pop open, but they're mostly closed during this episode as well. He goes back to sleep.

Wakes after not much sleep, maybe an hour or two at most. He's in a good mood now, it's all right now.

I'm in the back with Peej and Meimei on the way to Kensington. She begins to stress a bit. Peej is looking at her and she at him. Peej says "No, no," like she's making a little mistake he can help her with. She begins to work up a cry again and Peej says "No" again. She doesn't cry. Peej just looks away as if it's the most natural interplay there is. I am so amazed.

The story goes, Em and Lau-Lau put the hat on PJ, snapped a photo and put the hat back, right on!  Sleeping at the hotel after a long day.
