At least that's what my dad informed me when he pointed out that I had not posted Florida pictures yet (apparently on my last post I promised that I would post Florida pictures very soon for the grandparents). Since that post both grandparents have seen the Florida pics in person....but I will carry out and post anyway.
Quick update....lots has happened since my last post. Our computer has crashed and we are on to a new one (which mostly accounts for the delay in my posts) and we are now the proud owners of a computer complete with Windows Vista...I swear I'm about to jump on the Mac bandwagon, the "king of pop" has passed, Governor Sanford has apparently found his "soul mate" in Argentina...but don't worry, he promised to try and fall back in love with his wife, my position at the university has come to close and I am now a (tempory) stay-at-home mom.
On to Florida....
I now know the moment of panic that every parent feels when their child begins to cry on a flight. On the return flight from Florida we had not even taken off when Olivia started really letting loose with her cries. She was hungry. And sometimes I want to cry too when I'm hungry. Fortunately for us she ate and then fell asleep about 10 minutes in and slept for the rest of it. I asked my brother Stephen what he would have done if she had screamed nonstop for the whole trip. He said that he would calmly get his ipod out and listen to it as loud as he could. Thank you for your support and help Uncle Steve. My main concern with flying was that it would hurt her ears. And not for a second did she act like anything was bothering her. I did force either the pacifier or bottle in her mouth though the whole time we were going up and again when we came back down.
Welcome to Disney World Stephen...we are so glad you are excited to be here!
Olivia, on the other hand, is thrilled to be here. It makes no difference to her that we only slept for about 5 hours...she is ready to go.
She is soooo excited about Animal Kingdom! Please note the disney themed onesie and hairbow.
I will say that vacationing will never be the same as it used to be. It's amazing what a difference a tiny 14lb little girl can make! So yes, it was different. But not bad. We were so glad to have Stephen with us. He is a brave soul to travel with all of us...and he even acted like he had fun:)
