We are here!

We are in Taipei! YAY! Flights went well, both were actually early. Janie did great (especially for a little girl who didn't sleep much at all). We got her up Friday morning at 5:00am and boarded the first flight at 11:00. This was the LONG 14 hour flight. She fell asleep before take off and slept for 1 hour 15 minutes (getting up at 12:15 Georgia time). Then she stayed awake and played, played, played until 8:00pm (Georgia time) and finally gave it up and fell asleep for 3 hours. Then she was awake for the rest of the flight. 

Then she ran all around the Tokyo airport during the lay-over but got really grumpy and was sooooo tired. The flight from Tokyo to Taipei is 3 1/2 hours and she slept the entire time. Now she is RUNNING around the hotel room and beyond excited. Hopefully she can sleep tonight and get on Taiwan time. It is currenty either 11:00pm or mid-night Taiwan time (we are a little confused with day-light savings time). Taiwan is either 12 or 13 hours ahead of Georgia. So Janie has had about 7 hours of sleep in the past 36 hours--yikes. She is such a little trooper. She is so happy and excited--she just goes with the flow.

One thing that did happen to the poor thing--she did get a few nose bleeds on the 14 hour flight and 1 on the shorter flight. I guess that was a long time to be up so high!! Poor thing! But she is doing just fine now....

Also there was a baby on the first flight that cried several time and Janie would look over and say "Baby" or "Shhh" and seem so concerened....she is going to be the BEST big sister! 

More updates tomorrow. Thanks for all the prayers for safe travels!!
