We had such a great time with family in KC, and wish we lived closer and could see each other often. I know we would meet for lunch, have barbecues in the backyard, have girl talks, and I would get makeovers, like all the time.
As for flying with a toddler, by myself, It was easier than I thought. The Ergo is definitely my best advice, and from what I saw at the airport, it seems to be the carrier of choice for flying ( :
I spotted other babywearers right away, giving each other a babywearer nod or smile.
I recommend packing snacks (purchasing snacks on the plane or airport is really expensive), crayons and coloring books. We also watched a movie on my laptop during the flight.
I read two great books during my trip, and can't wait to tell you more.
For now... here are more pictures from our trip:
