We are back and all in one piece! Jack was absolutely amazing on this trip. He was perfect on the plane, never cried or made a fuss. He got a bit upset once we were in the airport, but the poor thing needed to eat! For being a six week old baby who had only met a few people in his short life and was thrown into a whole new world, Jack did amazing. He was quite the star and was rarely put down. The poor kid was so happy when we would just let him lay on his back and kick around. He was held ALL the time.
It was also the first time that i was away from him for any amount of time. I had been pumping and freezing milk, so that Ryan would be able to feed him while i was away. It seem to work out pretty well, except that i missed my baby! It was nice to get a bit of a break and spend time with my mom and sister though. Abbey lives an hour and half away from my parents where we were staying, so i did lots of driving. We had to get my dress fitted, get pedicures of course and than the bachelorette party, rehearsals and so forth. Needless to say, Jack was with his dad quite a bit!
Ryan was amazing and took great care of Jack. He really enjoyed spending so much time with him. He was at his mom's house though, so if there were any major questions, she was there to help out. Ryan's oldest brother Micheal was also in town with his two kids, which was great to see them. Jack ended up meeting 1 grandma, 1 grandpa, 2 great grandpas, 3 great grandmas, 3 uncles, 1 aunt, 6 cousins and a whole slew of other relatives.
All in all, it was a great trip. I will have to blog about the wedding and the more of the trip later. Little Man is calling me.
