Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers for my Grandma. This week has certainly been harder then I thought it would be. We had so much time to prepare ourselves for losing her, but it is still hard to believe she's gone. Our nightly routine is lonely without visiting with her. I know that Grandma is watching over us though.
Speaking of watching over us, I sure hope she's putting in a good word for our trip up to her funeral. Instead of driving 12-hours to St. Louis, my mom decided it would be better for us to fly. I think the thought of a 12-hour road trip with Jackson made her nervous. He's such a busy boy these days! So, we'll be taking our first flight with the little man soon and I need some advice!!! Frequent Flyer Mommies - what tips do you have for traveling with a 12-month old?
I don't have to transport too much, thanks to some awesome ladies back home. I'll borrow a car seat, pack'n'play, high chair and stroller up there. We have a 2 hour layover coming and going, should I gate check my umbrella stroller?
What about food, can you bring baby food jars on the plane? I'm still nursing, so I'm good with milk:) Can I bring medication - you know like a little Benadryl to help him sleep if he's screaming on the plane? I don't want to disturb the other passengers if Jackson isn't handling the flight well...'cause the only one that loves you no matter what is your Momma!
