Wisconsin Trip Update

Well thank you to all of you that prayed for safe travel and a good time with my parents in Wisconsin. Emme and I had a fabulous visit that included to relatively painless airplane rides! The only drama of the entire week occured on the flight back to DFW! The flight to Milwaukee was truly a breeze. Emme slept the entire time and didn't make a peep. The ride home was a little more interesting- but not because of Little Miss... because of a major mommy mishap!

Apparently my flight was scheduled to leave at 4:05 pm... not 4:35 pm. This makes a HUGE difference in the flying world. We arrived at the airport an hour before my "supposed" flight- since this airport is super easy to navigate and never takes more than a couple minutes to check in and get through security. Needless to say there were tears involved and I was RUNNING down the hallways to catch my flight. Relief set in when I actually made it on the plane! Praise the Lord (and my bag even arrived in DFW- which I did not foresee would have been a possibiltity given the amount of time I didn't have!)

I have to give kudos to my AMAZING baby who took all of this stress in stride, even having to eat 30 minutes late, in the very back seat of a plane- after her mother practically carried her by her neck to make it to the gate! After eating and a quick poopy diaper change (they do have changing tables in the super small bathroom!) Emme was asleep for the rest of the flight.

Our time in Wisconsin was priceless. We enjoyed time in the dowtown Cedarburg area- which is a lot like Mayberry- circa Andy Griffith. We visited local coffee shops and checked out an apple orchard. Our visit also included many naps for both mommy and Emme- and much needed downtime. The weather was beautiful and we really enjoyed the time with Grammy D. and Papa John. Emme started smiling so much this past week. She is changing every day it seems. Here are a few pictures from our visit.

Leavin' On A Jet Plane...

Tomorrow is a big day! Emme and I are leaving early in the morning to visit Grammy and Papa John in Wisconsin. I have to say I am definitely nervous about taking my 5 week old though the flight process. Since Ben is busy bringin' home the bacon (thank you, Honey!) I am making the trip alone. And I am so used to doing these sort of things with my man by my side- taking the lead in stride! I guess I am most fearful about the limited space I have to keep her occupied during the 2 1/2 hour journey. I am planning to follow advice I have heard from others about feeding her during take off and landing, and then hoping and praying that she will sleep during the majority of the flight. Wish me luck, and say a prayer if you think of us! I will update next week with a report from our trip up North!

One Month Birthday!

One month ago today I was having a different sort of "labor day." Ha! But today we are celebrating one month with our beautiful Emme Lou. She is such a blessing to us and we just treasure every second with her! I leave you with a few pics of our little lady...
