Any plans? Traveling with your new baby to visit lots of people?
Holidays during November and December
Yeesh. I'm totally planning to NOT travel. None of my family lives nearby, but I've done the "extensive travel with babe all over the state in two weeks" thing once before and I'm not doing it again - especially in the winter in MN. We haven't exactly decided what we're going to do for the holidays, but we're kind of leaning towards staying home by ourselves as a family of four.
Excuse any weird typos - I'm going against my usual inclination and posting from my phone.

VV - It's not usually an option for us to fly with him, either, due to cost. We did fly with him to OK because it was cheap and we could use frequent flier points. Plus, we lived there for 2 months last year, so I had people to visit in the area. Hotel living with a baby and no car (what I'm doing this week) is less ideal. Luckily, I was able to stay at my parents' for the two weeks he was gone without us. I don't think there's anyway I would have survived, psychologically, being the 24/7 caregiver for the baby during that time. Honestly, my family was a lot more help than dh is when he's home (both because they were around more and because they're more experienced with babies), but I still missed having dh around!
