I was so worried about the flight but this little guy was perfect! I got there late because I thought my flight was 30 minutes later than it was so I walked up to the gate and basically had to board immediately. I had to go to the bathroom so bad, I had planned to pump since I was giving him bottles instead of nursing on the flight, I was starving (I had only a small packet of oatmeal for breakfast 5 hours earlier), and was dying of thirst. Not the best way to board a 2 1/2 hour flight! But Lucas was so good. He was smiling at everyone on the flight. To the point where it was awkward because he wouldn't look away from people, just smiling and entertaining them!
He did finally fall asleep...on the descent! He slept about 10 minutes of the entire flight...but oh he was such a happy little baby, I didn't care one bit! I even changed him in the bathroom since I obviously didn't have time before we boarded the flight. Pretty sure he smiled through that as well.
Had to introduce Lucas to Portillos...he was trying to help me eat my shake.
Absolutely precious. Words cannot explain how I felt this moment. <3
Grandma wanted a picture with Grandpa too. I know Lucas would have loved his great grandpa too!!
4 generations - I'm so thankful for this day of our lives!
Also had to introduce Lucas to my favorite "Uncle Julio's"
Meeting his cousins and Aunt Tiffany for the first time!
and meeting Uncle Shawn too
Kaylee loves her cousin, Baby Lucas. She had fun trying to swaddle him in her purple blanket. Lucas was a trooper being a newborn baby.
Me getting snuggles from my nieces - they're growing way too fast1
Meeting Mandy then more snuggles with Papa!
Buddies already :)
Lucas loved making Grandma and Papa smile
Celebrating my Uncle Dennis' birthday -- Lucas was absolutely exhausted by this time and slept through the entire dinner, he was asleep more this day than awake!
Uncle Dennis and Aunt Marilyn finally meeting Lucas once he woke up!
Lucas being introduced to my cousins and aunt and uncle - I love for this brief moment that he was the center of attention. Yet he was busy looking at something in the sky! I'd say he must take after his dad and not like attention but we all know he loves any attention he can get!
Lots of loving from everyone
Reading time with Karrie and Acilia.
Even Missy stopped by!
Lucas wouldn't stop watching the kids jumping on the trampoline so I brought him over and the girls all stopped jumping so they could talk to him. It was the cutest. :) Kristin wanted to hold Lucas, despite Luke's face he was loving every second.
Kristi and Lucas (thanks Kristi for hosting!)...Dad and Lucas celebrating Father's Day a day early
Papa and his grandkids
Love this pic - cousin love! I saw pics of Kaitlyn from last year and Lucas looks just like her. They just have different eyes.
Uncle Shawn and Lucas
The flight home was a different story. He was so tired from the trip so he wasn't his happy smiley self. He didn't cry much but was more fussy and he slept for over an hour of the flight which was great because he needed the sleep and I was so worried he was going to cry the whole time. I was really relieved when I got off the flight. It was such a great trip and I am so thankful for the time I got to spend with my grandma and that Lucas got to meet her. It was also wonderful to be able to see family and introduce Lucas to everyone!
