He got all kinds of love and kisses from Nana and Pops, his great grandparents, uncle and aunts. He met his second cousin who, at 3 weeks, was so tiny. How quickly mommy amnesia sets in. I cannot believe Sam was ever that small!
A few things we learned along the way:
- driving through the night was a great way to ensure a happy baby upon arrival
- try to stick to your child's routine as best you can, even if you have to tell grandma that snuggles can continue later, it's time for baby's nap
- resist the urge to pack everything in your child's wardrobe -- i took lots of bibs and the bare minimum clothes since we did laundry
- sometimes you just have to listen to them cry a little bit, like when they've filled their pants at the most inconvenient point on the highway
What tips do you have for road-tripping with your babes?
