Baby’s Arrival in Los Angeles!
La-La-Land we have arrived! A long awaited trip for baby Langdon + I to glorious Southern California!!!
It’s been 2 1/2 years since I’ve returned to my birthplace – Los Angeles!!!! Because I applied for my Canadian permanent residency within Canada (as opposed to applying outside of Canada), it restricted me from crossing the border until everything was finalized. Boooooo!!! The entire process took a really agonizingly long ass time! Well boy howdy, once I got the okay – sayonara rainy Vancouver!!!! Git me on that bird pronto!!!!
Luckily the day we flew, Jeff was able to drive us to the airport + see us off. Although it’s only a 2 1/2 hour flight I was nervous flying with Langdon alone, so I was soooooo grateful that Jeff helped us haul all our crap + say goodbye to his son. Dad will come join us later in the month when he has a holiday break from his tv show.
Luckily pour moi the little scamper slept through the majority of the flight! We booked seats all the way in the back AND GUESS WHAT?! No one in our row, the row in front of us or next to us!!!! HALLELUIAH!!! Ain’t that somethin’?! Langdon + I got to party hard!!!
Oh you can’t even imagine what a delight it was to see my mom waiting for us at baggage claim!!!! Hello LAX, you fugly-badly-in-need-of-an-update-crazy-airport!!!!! It was pouring!!!! Langdon + I brought the much needed rain to Los Angeles. Little Langdon the Rain Maker. No, we didn’t go to Disneyland straight from the airport. But we did take the bus because people in Los Angeles don’t know how to drive in the rain + the freeways were a mess.
Well folks, Langdon has had a REALLY rough first couple days at grandma + grandpa’s house. He had a super hard time adjusting to his new surroundings + my loud, crazy family. And to put salt on the wound, remember the exorcist face he was making in the first photo? There was an explanation for it. He was teething!!! Oh lord have mercy it was a horrible first week !!! The little man has sprouted two little top teeth! Oh, + now he can pull himself up to stand! Yikes.
Which means lots of reaching for things that can take an eye out, konk him in the head or maim him in some way. So grandma, grandpa, auntie + mom are keeping an eagle eye on this active spazz at all times. It’s exhuasting.
I SWEAR TO GOD I DID NOT STAGE THIS PHOTO!!!! This tiny terror has run my family ragged in a matter of 6 days!!!! Someone carry grandma off to bed cuz she’s done!!!
Yeah, the Pacific Northwest winter can suck it!!!! The first week in Los Angeles was all about getting in step + finding a rhythm. Now we’re ready to rock it! Get ready for adventures + Golden State fun to come!!! Bye bye!
