So we survived traveling with Spencer! It's funny cause we kept commenting on how different it was when it was just the two of us; one, two,three. With a baby everything takes that much longer! We had a stroller and a car seat and bags and the baby but we made it.
When we got on the plane, Spencer was an absolute angel! Here is is just chilling before we took off:
He ate during take off and landing and slept in between, which is ideal when flying with a baby. I just don't know if it is ideal for plane rides that are longer than an hour or two, especially if I have to do it alone. I think once he can sit up and be occupied by his surroundings and his toys a longer ride won't be so bad.
The main reason for us taking this trip was to visit Hubby's grandma, which is Spencer's great grandma. Great Granny doesn't travel and I wanted to be sure she got a chance to see our little one before he got too big. Here they are checking each other out:
Then Spencer got fussy at Granny, in true Spencer style:
Besides seeing his great granny, Spencer got to see a lot of cousins and aunts and great aunts. And through all the holding, cuddling, kissing and cooing he did wonderful. He handled it all like a champ.
On his last night, Spencer fell asleep with a teddy bear...which was Daddy's favorite when Daddy was a kid:
