We had an unexpected trip to South Carolina on Wednesday afternoon. So, we packed up the entire house, loaded everything into the Escape and hit the road. Lea was great, the first couple hours, but then she was ready to get OUT of the car seat.
We arrived at our hotel and unpacked the entire house that we some how managed to fit in the car. This included our Pack-n-Play that Lea has not seen since she was about 2 months old. To our surprise, she slept very well in it that night! The following night we headed home. Poor Lea was so fed up with being in the car. (We've got to get her used to road trips!) So, about 8pm Thursday night, we stopped at South of the Border. Can you believe that place is still up and running? They even have new billboards... where the heck did they get the extra money for that?
We walked around a bit to let Lea enjoy all the bright lights, then after a quick diaper change and nursing in the parking lot, we finished the last couple hours of our trip. It was so nice to be home in our own beds that night!
Not only did Lea 'enjoy' her first road trip, first night in a hotel, first time in South Carolina and first visit to South of the Border but yesterday she had Cheerios for the first time! Two, to be exact. :) Our pediatrician gave us the 'go ahead' for plain Cheerios and Puffs at her 6 month well check yesterday morning. After spitting out the cruchy 'oh' a couple of times, she finally gummed it in her mouth... Not sure if she actually liked it or not, but it's a huge step forward in my baby girl's little life.
