As I mentioned earlier, Joel had training in TX and so Emi and I took the opportunity to fly out and meet him and visit my Brother and his girlfriend. This was their first time meeting Emi. We had lots of fun and enjoyed 75 degree weather in December! Thank you Aaron and Leigh for letting us take over your lives for the weekend with all our baby stuff. Love you guys!

First Flight...Austin, TX
Oh and I almost forgot to share about our flying adventures...So we started in NC and flew through Chicago to Austin. I was kinda anxious because I was flying alone with Emi and didn't want to be "THAT lady with the crying baby". But on the way out it all went great. She was awesome sleeping most of the way and being cute. We were blessed to sit next to very sweet and understanding people. Our flights arrived early and took off on time! So all went awesome. NOW on the way back it was a little different...I was very excited because we had a direct flight from Austin back home so I was thinking we were smooth sailing. Until I arrived at the airport and because of bad weather in Chicago our flight was delayed 1 hour...no big deal just threw off my plan for Emi with nursing and sleeping but we can handle it. So we finally board our flight and not even an hour into it Emi wakes up and is fussy...then lets loose a masive poop. (Leigh didn't I tell you she would do that to me?!) So once we reached our flying altitude I ventured to the front bathroom where there is a "changing table" aka a fold down flat board, and proceeded to change my sweet angles diaper. As I began to undress her I realized that this lovely present she made was all over her...up her back and on her clothes. So I striped her down changed the diaper as best I could in such a small place and carried her back to our seat with just her diaper on. Luckily I thought ahead and brought a change of clothes but getting a 3 month old into a oneise in an airplane seat isnt the easiest. We finally landed and were waiting on Joel because his flight was delayed 2 hours therefore our ride, Joel, was delayed. So we sat tight for 2 and 1/2 hours until we finally made it home around 1230am! What an adventure!!!
