I am about to take a 3 hour flight to Texas and then an 8.5 hour flight to Hawaii with the little man in tow. This will be his first time flying, at just shy of 8 months. I keep trying not to freak out and tell myself this is an adventure! All travel tips are welcome. I have been packing for two days! I think I may have brought enough to move in…
Hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season. It’s really amazing how times flies. I’m up right now at 3:30 am because I couldn’t go back to sleep and figured what the heck, I’ll get some early morning “me” time in. I remember the days when I used to stay up till 3:30 am for fun.
We are just a week away from 8 months. Just crazy. I can’t even remember if I did a 7 month update. He’s just growing so fast and really turning into a little person with a big personality 🙂
It’s been just over 6 months and I totally understand why people say goodbye and give up their blog. Life with baby is crazy, wonderful, overwhelming, busy and exhausting and barely leaves room for anything else.
I stopped breastfeeding and pumping a couple weeks ago and have fallen behind in blog reading since then. I completely enjoy having my boobs back to myself, but I do kind of miss my forced 30 min. of sitting still.
I have moment now because K is asleep after projectile vomiting on me twice and having explosive diarrhea. You can’t really go back to sleep after that. We are dealing with our first stomach virus. It involves a lot of clothes changing.
Other than the current situation, things have been great. I am trying to find the time to create my new blog. I really loved blogging through my IVF experience and want to continue in a new setting.
I miss my blogging buddies! So while I still have a moment to myself I’m going to go catch up on all of your stories now 🙂
For anyone pumping with the aid of the hands free bra, I suggest ditching it right now and grabbing the closest sports bra. A couple snips on the nips and you will have a pumping bra ten times more comfortable! I don’t know what took me so long to figure this out. It’s been almost 6 months!
I forgot my bra in a hotel room. If the maid doesn’t know what it is then she’s going to think we were a little kinky…lol So with no pump bra I sacrificed a tight sports bra and cut little holes in the nip area. So much better! I don’t know why that other bra doesn’t have shoulder straps. I wish I would have thought of this months ago!
So that’s why I wanted to share it 🙂
That would be little K not me, because I was too busy waking up every hour in disbelief and then checking to make sure he was ok. He fussed a bit at midnight and got an arm out of his swaddle, so I let the other one out, gave him his pacifier and he was out! He slept from 9pm to 7:30am. It was amazing 🙂
