Well, Katie, thanks for being inquisitive about my trip to Indiana.
All went well on our trip here. Liam was as dreamy as he could possibly be for a 9 month old! He behaved quite well. There was no crying until my mom picked us up from the airport and I got a little worked up that the stroller wouldn't fit in the trunk of the car. So Liam felt my anxiety, the humid heat and his own fatique and it got the best of him. We had a crying baby most of the drive to my parent's house.
Though our first flight was delayed an hour, we were still able to meet Liam's other grandparents in Minneapolis for our layover! We only got about 30 minutes or less with them, but it was so worth it! I was so grateful the flight change didn't mess up our planned encounter. Grandpa brought what Liam thought was a "present" for him. It was his cane and Liam couldn't get enough of it! The toys baby claim! It was so cute! I will update later with photos.
Liam slept for about 40 minutes our first leg of the trip and another 40 minutes on the second leg. Nursing him was much easier than I thought it was going to be because we ended up having an extra seat beside us on both flights. I hope I get that lucky on the way back to Utah. What a blessing! Elbow room and space for Liam to play was awesome! I have to say, the cool cucumbers I brought along were the favorite toy/snack! I am so glad I thought of that at the last minute. He did watch his baby einstein video too, so with all the "props" I brought for a smooth flight those two items were the stars.
Yesterday we visited the bride to be and her mother made brunch for us and we chatted half the day away! Liam was charming and very well behaved at their house. I just couldn't ask for a better baby to be traveling with.
Anyway, when I get home I will report more and post photos!
