I must admit... I was absolutely terrified to fly alone with Isaac. Anything you read online will pretty much convince you that you are incredibly stupid to do it (and that everyone around you will be really mean to you). Not only was I scared of the flying part... I was scared of being away from home for a full week with Isaac. Babies require a lot of stuff! I spent hours making a detailed list with every single thing that I was going to take with me on it (I'm glad I did... it made it so much easier to make sure I packed everything at the end of my trip when I knew I had brought 9 burp clothes and 11 bibs).
Long story short... flying with Isaac wasn't that bad. I kept him up during layovers so he'd take a bottle and then sleep during the flights. It worked out great! He slept through all our flights.
We had a lot of fun while we were in Kansas. Isaac was cuddled and played with to his heart's content (and maybe a little more).
|Tuesday afternoon after we touched down. My mom and sisters were all over him!|
|He also spent some quality time with Grandpa... who could make him laugh like none other (except his Daddy... and his other Grandpa)! He also loved staring at my dad's fish.|
|Isaac learned to love tummy time!|
|Especially since he got to give the nose suction thingy a piece of his mind.|
|He put on a concert for Grandma!|
|And we Skyped with Daddy (a couple times he tried to lean in so daddy could hold him)|
|He also had a heart to heart with his bear. Oh... and he loved that jumper... he loved it so much that we bought one for our apartment. Best money we've spent!|
|He also got to meet his Uncle Ben through pictures (since Uncle Ben is currently serving in Venture California!)|
|He wanted to get to know Uncle Ben really really well.|
|And when he got tired, there was always someone to hold him!|
|One day, while I was showering, my mom decided to vacuum, so she put a burp cloth around his ears to protect them. I just laughed when I saw it.|
I got Chipotle!! One of my only requests when I go home is to get Chipotle because I love their burritos so much, but the closest one to Provo is in Sandy.
We went to Saigon's. It's this little Vietnamese restaurant that my family loves! Mostly because my mom hasn't put it on her black list yet despite going there for the last 15 years. I branched out this time and got soup instead of my traditional chicken, vegetables, and noodle bowl. The soup was good... but I'm going back to my noodle bowl.
Now I'm just looking forward to the end of April when I get to be in Kansas for the next 3 months! The weather there has been in the 70s the last couple days, so I can only imagine how wonderful it will be in 2 months!
