Ok, I confess that I'm quite the John Denver fan and one of the songs that I sing to Radar when we dance is “Leaving on a Jet Plane.” So soon we'll put those words to action. Radar is armed with the doctor's ok and his passport, and now a reservation to sit on my lap!! At the ripe old age of two months, my little boy will be riding 5 different airplane legs, visiting 4 US States and meeting many of his family members and blog followers for the first time.
Rather than bore you with the details of our trip, I'll just give you an overview with some highlights! On our 10 day trip to South Florida, Maryland, Philadelphia and Maine, Radar will meet two of his uncles and his great-grandmother for the first time! He'll also have his first professional photo shoot done and will accept whatever hand-me-downs from his northern cousins that will keep him toasty as we make our way to the great state of Maine. And speaking of Maine, via breast milk, Radar will have his first taste of a juicy Maine lobster... yum!
We'll be gone from February 17th through March 1st and although I'll be blogging on the road, I don't think it will be every day... or maybe it will – I've really gotten hooked on updating those who care to check on my darling little boy.
Now for a favor... for those of you that have traveled with infants (especially through airports, on planes and through multiple temperature zones), I would really appreciate any tips that you can throw my way. I have traveled aplenty in the past, but when I pack for myself, I usually do it at the last minute and I don't much care if I forget stuff. The mere thought of packing effectively for the two of us has led to a confused jumble in my head and I'm afraid I may be the lady on the plane that everyone smirks at and says under their breath, “she's got no idea what she's doing!”
Oh, and once again.... HAPPY DARWIN DAY!!!
Lots of Love,
Titi and Radar
