Maiden Voyage

Oliv and I are leaving for Las Vegas right now. It’s going to be the first plane trips of many with just the two of us, so I’m anxious/excited/scared to see how it goes.

Me and olivia

It’s been her worst week of teething yet, so please pray for me. Or better yet, pray for the people on board. I’m scared karma will be paying me a visit for all the times I gave babies the mental stink eye on planes. This is totally random, but I had a dream last night that Liv could talk. Kyle and I were hanging out with her and I said, “Liv, your hair is growing so pretty!”

She said, “I know, you’ve been watering it.” (maybe from in the bathtub when I rinse out her shampoo?)Β 

In the dream, I was just totally shocked that she could talk and Kyle was laughing so hard saying, “She made a joke!”

So weird haha.

To my complete shock and amazement, I managed to pack all of mine and Liv’s stuff into a carryon suitcase + diaper bag.


I’m not quite sure how it happened. Having a baby definitely forces ya to become more organized, and since I’m not shoving clothes blindly into a suitcase right before leaving, I have matching outfits packed. Win πŸ™‚

See ya in Vegas with some of the pics you’ve sent in this week, too πŸ™‚

    She’s looking a little like Mr. Pilot in that picture! Too cute! Have so much fun!

    Good luck on your flight! Hope it goes well! I was just wondering, where did you get the silver duffel in your picture? It’s adorable!

  9. Erin @ The Grass Skirt on August 3, 2012 at 5:53 pm

    Have a blast! I’m thinking happy, safe travel thoughts for you and Livi!

    How do you keep up with your workouts on the go? I have a whole suitcase for my stepper and weights for step aerobics that I have to bring along. You packed so light, no workout equipment there. What’s your secret?

    Have a wonderful trip!! I hope Livi enjoys her plane ride, and everything goes smoothly. I’m sure it will! And what’s the trick to getting everything in those two bags? I have such a problem with packing for what you need ONLY. πŸ˜‰

    Have you tried an amber teething necklace? They are suppose to work wonders. I’ve already picked one up for my soon to be born little man.

    Good luck on the plane. Can’t wait to read about your adventure!

    OMG… that is the funniest dream! Did you wake up laughing hysterically?

  16. Averie @ Averie Cooks on August 3, 2012 at 8:36 pm

    Best of luck & have fun! If you can survive a solo trip, first flight, and teething, all at once – all trips from here on out will be a cakewalk πŸ™‚

  17. Leslie W on August 3, 2012 at 8:45 pm

    Oh, yes. You get much more gifted at choosing “need” versus “want” when you’re packing with more people in your family. My husband has more bags for just him than I pack for myself and two children. It’s hilarious! Be safe!

  18. Taylor on August 3, 2012 at 11:20 pm

    OMG…..she is soooooooooo cute!!!!!!!!!

  19. Diane on August 4, 2012 at 12:18 am

    ditto Taylor’s comment. She’s so focused!

  20. Jess on August 4, 2012 at 3:56 am

    Have fun! You two will be totally fine! And no doubts she will be talking in no time! My girls said mama at 6 mos πŸ™‚

  21. Danielle@cleanfoodcreativefitness on August 4, 2012 at 8:31 am

    Good luck and have an awesome trip! I’m sure Olivia will be just fine!

  22. kim@hungryhealthygirl on August 4, 2012 at 9:43 am

    Good luck on the plane and have a safe flight!

  24. Liz on August 4, 2012 at 3:18 pm

    Oh my goodness, Olivia is so darn cute, cute, cute,CUTE! I wish I could carry her for a bit. =)

  25. Lisa on August 4, 2012 at 3:39 pm

    Have a safe flight! And good luck with the flight, hopefully it will go flawlessly:)

    Do you think your diaper bag is big? Can you fit a lot of Olivia’s things? Could you tell me where you got it? I am traveling to France with my one year old and need a large diaper bag. Olivia is a cutie! Thanks.
