This weekend we went on our first trip in over a month. A weekend in Raleigh was on the books and we were excited to see our family and test the waters of travel once more with our little Travel Bug.
Our last excursion ended on a not so positive note with the Bug just embarking on her 9th month and 4th tooth. (See my last Travel Bug post for a peek at that experience) Our trip was cut short by a fussy and sleepless baby and a more than frazzled mama. I had sworn off all trips until we had at least gotten a bit of sleep under our belts.
Our entrance back into travelling this past weekend was more than successful. Thank goodness. I was starting to go stir crazy and really missed seeing the family. This weekend has restored my faith in the outside world, our little one is more adaptive than we thought She was well adjusted all weekend!
It’s as though she’s reached an age where she can adapt better to her surroundings, changes in her environment and lots of activity. She went to a birthday party, and had a full day of play and Easter fun with her cousin. The schedule was full but we managed to squeeze in the appropriate amount of naps in order to avoid a meltdown. She even slept through the night! This well rested Travel Bug was exactly what we had hoped for all weekend. She was in her element!
We are already planning our next trip to Raleigh to see Mimi and Papa. A visit to see Gammies and Grandpa in Virginia is around the corner, and we are now actually looking forward to our first flight to a long overdue family reunion in May.
It is so amazing to watch these changes take place, especially when the changes make your life as a parent a bit easier. Makes all the difference!
When did your Travel Bug become a jetsetter? Have you ever had problems traveling with your baby?
