Ivy, Kevin and I have finally found each other. Meeting her was a beautiful, amazing moment and she greeted us with smiles and waves. I forgot my concerns about becoming a family in the middle of an airport and the few people who were in the international arrivals waiting area respected our privacy and I know that we helped make their day a happier one.
We're now back in the room and Ivy is sleeping on Kevin's chest. We played for a little while and she showed us a few of her tricks: she crawled back and forth between the two of us on the bed, she chewed on a toy and she ate a few bites of applesauce. She cried for a bit, but swaying back and forth and bouncing up and down in her daddy's arms helped settle her down into a nice deep sleep.
