we went to the US for a family reunion (utah) and wedding (california) of my sister-in-law, julia. it was a long time to be away from home, but good to see family. kai did really well on the flights from hk to sfo, sfo to slc, slc to sea and sea to cali, and then back to hk from sfo. needless to say, i was totally exhausted!

while in the US, kai has learned to blow bubbles, babble more (“ai-goo”, etc.), and lift his chest off the ground without arms (he hasn’t learned that it’s easier to do with arms). and today he did his very first “crack up” (laugh out loud). so made my day.

here are a few shots of our little trip.
