* Warning...long post with lots of pictures!! *
Colin and I were fortunate enough to "run into" Nana and Grandad at the airport as they were on their way to visit Mickey Mouse in Florida. Our flights were only an hour apart, so they were able to help us through security and we had breakfast together.
I was lucky that prior to boarding, they were able to change my seat to a row that had an open seat (since Colin was "on my lap"). He had been up since 5am and although he was in a great mood at the airport, he started to get really tired while we were waiting to take off. It was my plan that he would sleep for a long period of time, but between two short naps, he only slept for a little over an hour total on a 4+ hour flight.
(Just prior to takeoff) He fell asleep in my arms as we were moving to take off, which was a huge relief. Overall, given that Colin is an easy going baby, the flight wasn't too bad. However, he got really antsy because he just wanted to go, go, go and unfortunately he was stuck, stuck, stuck. We had a busy first day after Veronica picked us up, but we were lucky to get to spend some time on Friday morning with Veronica's husband Francis since he headed to the east coast that day for a wedding.
Friday night the three of us went out for a yummy dinner where Colin was so well-behaved.
