Journey Home

We made it back, safe and sound.

The trip went extremely smoothly, at least until our arrival. That is when Global Baby decided he had been through enough and went into Baby Overload. He started screaming in the airport and it took nearly an hour to get him calm enough to sleep again. But when he woke up a few hours later, he was his normal Happy Self and devoured a bottle of formula with typical gusto.

Up until that point he had spent most of his time sleeping, occasionally waking to eat and grin at fellow travelers.

Early indications are that he will make an excellent traveler, which is very good given how much we tend to travel!

When D was first born I was so intimidated by the thought of taking him out anywhere, as I worried about meltdowns and having to feed him while out in public. Then he got older and I realized that those first months, when baby sleeps so much, are probably the easiest for travel! Ah, well...You live, you learn.

Glad to hear you all made it back safe and sound. =)

So the big question is ... what do Max and Tilly think of GB?

Success! GB's first plane ride. After reading Susan May's comment, I am also curious about Max and Tilly.
