When we last left off, loyal readers, our family was operating with a headcount of three.
Max Nevis Herickhoff finally graced us with his presence in Minnesota… merely a week late & two ounces heavier than his sister (9lb 7oz, and 22″ long). (We chose Nevis in honor of the tallest mountain in Scotland, Ben Nevis… as well as our favorite pub in Glasgow where we spent many nights with friends & family the week that we got married over there!)
After John & Paige returned to Tanzania, Max and I hung around a couple extra weeks to sneak in some vaccinations + taste the glory of 70-degree spring days in Minnesota. All good things must come to an end, so I packed up all our worldly possessions and headed out for Baby’s First International Flight.
Big sister Paige has been surprisingly pro-baby brother, and was delighted to have the family reunited.
Max is already exploring local fashions…
And he is working on his future dating profile: “I like long naps on the beach.”
And now, we are a family of four.
We’re excited to be back in Dar, especially during the glorious “winter” season where temps can get down to the mid-60s! More to come…. I think? 😉
