1st Airplane Ride

On May 9th Travis got to go on his first airplane!  We flew from Provo to Denver for a quick visit before heading to Houston.  I was SO nervous because Eric wasn't with us and I didn't know how he would handle it.  He was such a good baby.  He flirted with the girl next to me almost the whole time, and then when we landed, he fell asleep on me.  Silly boy.  Our gate was A 60, so I held him on my shoulder and pushed the stroller with my other arm all the way to the baggage claim where I met my sister, and then all the way to the car.  It was a good 45 minute nap for him.  I'm glad he did so well on the airplane.  He didn't have any ear issues that I could tell, thanks to his binky!

He had 3 other plane rides on our trip.  We were with both my mom and dad for one, then just my mom, and then just the two of us going home.  He did well on all of them!  He had little moments where he would cry for a few seconds but he would calm down easily.  After our flight to Houston, the lady behind me told me that I have the best baby in the world.  She hardly noticed that there was a baby on the flight except for the fact that he would smile at her when he was standing on my lap.  I'm one lucky momma!

Here's a picture from his first flight.  Isn't he cute?

Here he is on our way to Houston!
