Day 83 - Little Elvis is an excellent traveler

My worries were for naught. Little Elvis was an angel -- seriously. I know I'm his mom, but he did really well.

He woke up with us at 4 a.m. and was happy during his feeding and changings and for the ride to the airport. He was asleep by the time Bob put him in the Snugli and he stayed that way until I boarded the plane.

Then the little guy woke up and just looked around for a while. He started getting fussy and although I had intended to save his bottle for take off, I gave it to him early. (It took them forever to decide to leave the gate.)

It took me several days of pumping to get up to 2 and 1/2 ounces, but I did it. I thought that wouldn't be enough, but as soon as he finished, he fell into a nice sleep and slept through take-off.

Little Elvis woke long enough during the flight for me to change his diaper and then fell right back to sleep for landing.

The nice man sitting beside me helped me load him back into the Snugli and all the people sitting around me heaved a sigh of relief as we got off the plane.

See what I mean about being an angel? I couldn't have choreographed better behavior.
