We survived baby's first airplane flights and weekend away!! Luckily it was just a whirlwind 48 hour trip for us, and 1 hour flights each way, but she was perfect - just ate, cooed, and fell asleep.
However, yesterday when I had to work and was away from DH and babe for 10 hours, she started out great and then screamed at him for 4 straight hours before finally falling asleep. Sigh. It broke my heart to get those panicked calls from him... there was nothing I could do. So hard that his first full day of taking care of her was away from home, away from me. He said he thought someone would call the police because she was so upset
and though I would've just taken her around on a long walk, he was too freaked out at how upset she was to leave the hotel room. TERRIBLE! I could tell it really, really shook him up, but today he is doting on her and everything just as much. I know that he wishes I hadn't had to do that trip but I couldn't see a way out of it since it will pay my bills for several months and was booked long before I got pregnant... sigh.
Anyway. We're home now. DD is being extra fussy this evening, too, so I am wondering if she might be teething already? Fist jammed in her mouth at every possible moment, extra clingy and needy, pooping a million times this weekend...
I need to stop trying to figure out WHY she gets upset, and just stay flexible on trying new things.
Funny thing: on Friday night, we got food from a restaurant near the hotel and DH brought it back to the room and unpacked mine and said, "does this roll smell like the baby to you?". I smelled it, and it did! So cute that he thought a fresh baked bread product smelled like his baby... random!
Happy 4th! Wondering if DD will be able to handle the fireworks 2 blocks from our house... we will see!
