This is a blog about our life. I started the blog because we lived overseas for my husbands job. That meant it was hard to keep family, back in The States, in the loop about what we were up to. It also became a great way to share my sons birth story with everyone who we wish could have been there. I slowly got busy with life & stopped blogging. Here we are in 2014, living back in the good ol' USA & as we make life changes I find this to be a great way to share my thoughts and save them for my son to look back on someday.

Almost 6 months.

So I knew I was behind in blogging. Have no idea if anyone reads this things anyways. BUT I just realized I haven't blogged since Thanksgiving. We are almost into Feb of 2012. I am seriously slacking. Today is a good day to update because I am being super lazy. So where to begin. December I suppose.
December 2011
Let's see...what happened in December. Well I turned 25. WHAT THE WORLD!?!?!? I am getting old. So until The Mr's birthday later this year, I am older than him. He likes to tell me how old I am. We also celebrated our 4th Wedding anniversary. It seems like that is the wrong number. This summer we will celebrate 8 years together. That sounds more accurate. I guess when that time rolls around I will do a post about how much life has changed since then. I suppose that is all that really happened the first couple weeks in December. Mid December we headed to vacay in Texas!!! Anyone who knows me, knows that I live for family time. So where do we start...let talk about The adventure of getting to Texas.
Texas or Bust
So we left early early in the am. The 2 hour ride to the airport was easy, nothing eventful. The Kid slept the whole way. I think I slept some too LOL. Check-in...easy and quick. I must say, the staff at Delta in Frankfurt were great with us. I should have photographed the "Family Restroom" in Frankfurt. It was clean and spacious. More public places need to have these restrooms. I hate when I have to change The Kid when we are out and about sometimes, because you just never know what the changing tables will be like. Sometimes I dont event attempt it, I just change him in my lap in the car. Anyways, onto security at the Airport. While it takes a little longer than it used to when it was just me and The Mr. We tried to travel light. But we still had the car seat, car seat base and stroller to break down and put through security. It wasn't bad, just took an extra minute or two. Went through security fine. Get to the gate and someone is holding things we're in this forever long line. Chango didn't mind for a bit. BUT eventually he had enough, he wanted out of his car seat and was hungry. I as trying to wait until we were seated in the gate area but that was taking forever. Luckily, they noticed us in line and waved us to the front and put us right through into the gate area. Now we just had to wait to board. Once again, Delta staff at FRA were great. We prepared the stroller to be gate checked and they took it so we didn't have to fiddle with it anymore. Now here is where i got annoyed and hopefully anyone withOUT kids takes notice. They always board, passengers with kids, wheelchairs etc before everyone else to give them some extra time. AND it DOES take a couple extra minutes to get down the Jetway with a kid, diaper bag, backpack, car seat and car seat base. So they announce they are going to begin boarding with these people and then who would be next etc etc. Of course EVERYONE at the gate decided to huddle around the gate area as though its a race to see who gets on the plane first. Are you kidding me people? You aren't going to be left behind. This was a VERY FULL international flight so it was a ton of people huddled around the gate. So they make the announcement for the people that take longer to go ahead and board. Well how the EFF are we supposed to board when all these people are blocking the way.
Anyways, no one cared to move for us so I just made my own path :) I told some other people with kids who were stuck to just follow us LOL. I was really mad. So if you are ever waiting for a plane, stay in your seat until it is actually your turn to board!!! Okay, that small rant over. Plane ride....Well we got stuck on the runway area for 3 HOURS because the plane was broke. No problem because Chango slept for those three hours...But I knew we still had an 8+hr plane ride ahead of us. The flight wasn't too bad as far as he goes. Just one small interesting thing. This kid poops once a normally. Twice at the most. Well for this flight he decided he was going to poop every hour or two. What the heck kid. Wouldn't be a problem if I didn't have to change him in this barbie size airplane restroom with an equally small changing table. Have you seen this kid? He isn't exactly small. Anyways, Thank Goodness we had our layover scheduled for 6 hours because with that 3+ hour delay we had in Frankfurt, we still wouldn't miss our connecting flight. Our layover was quick. Had enough time to grab some American Mickey D's. let the kid stretch and slowly make our way to our next flight. Here he is loungin around durign our layover.
So we boarded our plane home. The Kid was exhausted from our first flight and had enough. He was PISSED the second we put him in his car seat. He started screaming right away. He wouldn't take a bottle, a pacifier, nothing. I knew he was tired and uncomfortable but there was nothing I could do until after we took off. Everyone around us was staring at us. Mind you it was already dark out and most people probably wanted to sleep. They looked ready to strangle us. We could tell by the noise he was making he was about to fall asleep any second. He makes the same noises when he is about to fall asleep. So we just let him be. Well literally the second the plane sped up down the runway to take off, he knocked out. He slept the ENTIRE way. He didn't even wake up for landing. He was OUT. We made our way to our hotel for the night, exhausted. We had an early morning start the next day so we crashed out. Here is the Kid the next morning before we got ready to start our vacation with family!!!
