Woke up to some seriously bad news, y'all. The Beirut airport was bombed and is closed, which means we don't know when or how the ILs will be able to come to visit. Plus, it looks like the violence may be escalating with a naval blockade (this would mean they couldn't even travel to Cyprus in order to fly to Europe) and airstrikes in the southern suburbs of Beirut and in the south of the country.
What's so ironic about all this is that the ILs visa is taking a long time to be delivered because they are applying for residency here, partly to escape the unstable political situation there. We're so worried for all the friends and family there-- praying that this doesn't reignite the civil war... :

AND the baby had been born 6 weeks early, so really that baby was getting solids 2 weeks after it's due date!!! Holy S*%&!!!!! I couldn't believe it! I'm sure you're not, but if you're around Madison, WI, I'll hang with you!!! LOL
|Erin, great idea on the article. I can give it to the moderator and she could distribute it...she gave us a Mothering article from 1987 the other day. BTW, we are going to be spending alot of time in Newport over the next month (il's rented a house) if you are nearby at all maybe we could meet up sometime.|
