Ava was 18″ 6 lbs, 7 ounces (45.7 cm / 2.92 kg) at birth and both mother and niece are doing well. This morning niece #1 is going to go visit Mom and kid sister in the hospital. Jenn’s done a lot of work trying to prepare Emily for her new sibling, so we’ll see how Emily reacts.
On other news, I arrived in San Francisco on Saturday morning after a relatively painless 20-hour journey from Bangkok. I was fortunate that on both the BKK-NRT and NRT-SFO legs of the trip I had friends from UA working the flight.
Actually, BKK-NRT was someone I had only heard about from Tawn, but had never met: a former regional flight attendant who moved to the Narita base many years ago. He had heard my name, and recognized me on the passenger manifest.
On the NRT-SFO leg, I was very fortunate that another friend swapped his schedule to work the trip, since I was seated in Economy class. Using classy discretion, he made sure that my wine was from First Class, warm nuts appeared with that wine, and my breakfast before arrival was a nice fruit place that had come from a galley further forward in the plane! Thanks!
Of course, my preference would have been to have Tawn on my flight – but since that wasn’t possible, I’ll settle for other friends instead.
The weather is wet and rainy here in SF, and while I’m glad to be visiting I sure wish I was back in warm Bangkok!
