We made it. Max dealt better with the long flights than any of us did. He fussed a couple of times, but was wonderful and charmed the pants off of the flight attendants. We had a wonderful reception at the airport - greeted by Aunt Dawn, Aunt Moo Moo, Maddie, Myles, Aunt Missy, Uncle Paul, Peter, Olivia and Auri.

We finally heard him cry on the way home - he finally pooped (one statement that only mom's are proud of)! I'm too exhausted to write anything else.

Yeah! I'm so glad you made it home safe and sound. Enjoy some good sleep. Can't wait to hear what Maddie and Myles think of their new brother!

He is already so much a part of your family. He took right to everyone off the plane and at home in Livermore (toddling to papa winnie and cuddling made my day). Absolutely loveable child, even more so than any pictures could ever show.

Happy Birthday Max Rup!!!! Welcome home! (But I will miss your brother and sister).

Love and Kisses
Aunt Dawn

I think he wants to come snuggle with his new cousin(s). The boys woke up this morning if we'd be able to play with him today :)I can't stop thinking about his adorable little face and smile! Need a babysitter so you can go Christmas (or birthday)shopping?

Happy Birthday Max! So glad you can be home for it.
Love, Carrie and boys
