Home Sweet Home

We are home and so exhausted! On our flight yesterday Jules slept a grand total of 40 minutes...40! ::sigh:: I was hopping for longer but luckily she was in a great mood for the rest of the 5 hours & 13 minutes we were in the air.
Our week in NJ was so much fun!I loved seeing all of the family. I hate living so far away from them but when we do see each other, it  makes me appreciate my time with them so much more. Julianna, of course was super spoiled by everyone and LOVED all of the attention!!
Well, time to get back to laundry and unpacking. Booo! I hate unpacking!
I hope everyone had a great week!!! :)

The Baby Bjorn Saved My Life!!

Okay, so my title might be a little bit dramatic but seriously, I don't know what I would have done without it!! Having my hands free was a necessity so I could put her carrier in the gate check bag, without putting Jules on the gross airport floor or asking some random stranger to hold my baby while I got situated! Being able to have my hands free on the plane was also pretty great, of course she wasn't in it for the entire time, only when necessary. I would HIGHLY recommend bringing some sort of wearing device, especially if you are traveling sans help! And to think I almost considered not bringing the Bjorn...what was I thinking?

Julianna did better than I expected.Sure, she had her fussy moments on the plane but thankfully nothing too crazy! She had a little bit of a hard time falling asleep because she loves her own space when she sleeps(especially now that she is older) she is not a big fan of snuggling as of late. :( So her nap only lasted about an hour. I was hoping for longer but I guess some nap is better than no nap!!

I am sooo thankful that everything went pretty well this time around, now lets hope the same for our flight back home next week!!

Oh... and no poop on the plane!!! Yippee!!!!!

I may or may not post while we are here... we shall see how it goes! I hope everyone has a great rest of the week!!!

Leaving on a Jet Plane

Tomorrow Julianna and I will be up, up and away making our way to New Jersey!

We are going to be surprising Julianna's GG(my grandma)! I can't wait to spend 8 days with her and the rest of my family! I am so excited!!

I have to admit that I am a teeny bit nervous for the flight. I am not nervous about flying. I am nervous about flying with my busy 7.5 month old on a 6 hour flight by myself! This will be the second time that Jules has flown to NJ. The first time was in March and she was a sleepy little 8 week old. My parents flew with us, which helped me feel at ease but this time will be different. I am hoping and praying that she will be happy and content sitting on my lap/holding her the entire time. Jules HATES being confined and trapped, she LOVES to be on the go and LOVES her own, airplanes aren't exactly conducive to her personality at the moment. I know she isn't the first 7.5 month old to fly nor will she be the last but I am still anxious! I just don't want to be "that" mom who has a cranky, loud baby who annoys the other passengers. I am really,really hoping she will at least nap half of the flight. Aahhh, that would be glorious! Cross your fingers!!

I have a confession...

There is one more thing that I am slightly worried about and by slightly I mean, cringing at the thought of it....POOP! Not just any poop but the EXPLOSION kind. Jules has been on roll with these lately and I am hoping to avoid a poop situation on the plane at any cost!! Please pray her bowels will be kind!!!

Also, if anyone has any tips for me to make our flight easier, I would LOVE to hear them!

I am going to bring some puffs,mum-mums and a few new toys and books. I hope it will be enough to keep her occupied!

Baby + Dog Stairs=Fun Times

These pictures prove the point that it doesn't matter how many toys a baby/child have; they will always find other things that are waayyy more interesting/ fun and not to mention, these things are almost always cheaper than the toys that have all of the flashing lights and sounds! I can't believe how much Jules LOVES these stairs! She has become quite the little professional stair climber!!

On This Day in History... 1986, on a Thursday in a New Jersey hospital, I was making my grand entrance into this world!

Here I am in all my shining newborn glory

This is the amazing woman who gave birth to me, my Mommy! Thanks for pushing me out mom.
I hope I didn't hurt you too bad! Love you!!

I just wish this picture showed off my mom's totally awesome 80's hair!!

Last year on my birthday I was rubbing my belly and daydreaming about my baby girl & this year I am blessed to be celebrating it with her by my side!
