SO Lily and I flew to Colorado yesterday, all by ourselves! and she was GREAT!!!
One of the women who I work with had told me while I was pregnant that we should travel ALOT when the baby is young because once they are toddlers it is a lot harder, at the time I was kind of skeptical but now I'm a believer, Lily slept almost the whole 4 hour plane ride and was great in the airport while a little girl who must have been between 1 and 2 years old screamed the whole flight...
the biggest difference was all the stuff we carted around...imagine trying to put your shoes back on and gather all your stuff coming out of the x-ray belt at security with an infant squirming in your arms...that was pretty tough--luckily coming home Justin will at least be getting on a flight close to the same time as us so he will be able to help carry everything and get through security
Anyway I just thought I'd share Lil's latest escapades...she is holding her head up much more (she had control before but tended to let it rest on her chest) and I'm happy to report under all her chins, she does have a neck:)...the cutest thing is that she cant smile and hold her head up, so she looks around with big eyes and a very serious face and then when she wants to smile her head drops
the other wonderful occurence in the last 3 days is that she is sleeping 6-7 hours in a row without waking up!! WAHHOOO the first night I didnt get to appreciate it because I woke up after about 5 and spazzed because she wasnt moving around like normal--but the past 2 nights have been lovely!
She seems to be loving CO so far, of course having grandparents paying so much attention to her is her favorite :) The only thing i've noticed with the higher altitude is that she is spending a bit more time sleeping...She's going to be pretty crazy energetic when we get back to sea level
hope everyone has a great day
