Nom Nom Nom…

Someone found his toes and thinks they are oh-so-tasty!

I promise you that this kid has clothes, and lots of them!  Why is he always naked?!  I’m not really sure.  It’s just that he’s the happiest when his clothes are off.  If he’s ever fussy I know that if he’s sans onesie or diaper then he’ll turn into a happy camper.

T-2 days till our departure from Miami and fly home to Buffalo.  # of bags packed=0

First Baseball Game

Parker went to his first baseball game yesterday!  Daddy was in all of his Braves-loving-glory and was BEYOND excited that his son was at a game with him.

We joined our friends for some tailgating before the game.  Parker sat with the ladies (as usual for this ladies’ man…I’m in for some trouble when he’s a teenager) while watching Daddy and the other boys throw the football back and forth.

Here is Parker and Daddy on the way into the game.  Parker was in high spirits at this point and Daddy was 10 years old again walking into a candy shop.

Forget about our wedding, or Parker’s birth for that matter.  This might have been the best day of Brandon’s life.

You can tell that at this point (about 6 minutes into the game) Parker was clearly not amused.  We have a sensitive little boy on our hands.  He DOES NOT like loud noises so when the crowd cheered, a screaming baby came afterwards.  Daddy says he can be as sensitive as he wants – as long as he doesn’t throw like a girl 🙂After a few cries I took Parker outside of the stadium and walked and held him the rest of the game until eventually he fell asleep so Brandon could enjoy his first Braves game.  Big time wife points for me ::wink:: ::wink::

I made it back in for the last 2 minutes of the game.  We had a really good time with our friends.  Brandon and Parker were able to see their favorite baseball team for the first time and I got to eat stadium food, some chicken tenders and cotton candy so I was a happy girl 🙂

Flying with a 4 Month Old

Ok baby mamas.  I’m looking for some advice.

I’m flying home with Parker (alone) in about 2 weeks and I’m looking to see if anyone has any advice to make it a little easier.  I flew with Parker to Miami when he was 2 weeks old but that was easy – he was pretty much a little marshmallow that slept the whole time.  Now he’s much more alert, wants to keep moving around and changing positions and is much more vocal!

I know that nursing him on take off and landing will help his little ears but what if he’s already sleeping?  Would you wake him up to nurse or just leave him?…

Should I use my baby carrier?  I was planning on it but my concern is when he wants to move around, it won’t be as easy to get him in and out without an extra pair of hands (he’s a bit of a squirmer) and in such a tight space…

It will be about a 4 hour flight.  Any and all tips would be great!

Lets hope this is how Parker will be the entire flight…the other passengers will thank me 🙂
