First, I need to brag about my awesome daughter. I was worried about flying with my 13 month old. I hadn't flown with D since she was 6-7 months old, and was not sure how my mobile daughter would like being confined. She did awesome! Granted Mommy was a little paranoid, and had enough food for a couple days, a Handy Manny DVD, toys (including some new ones), crayons, paper, a magna doodle, my iPhone, and of course me (and my Ergo carrier). She watched about 15 minutes of Manny, had many a snack and took a bit of a nap on me (after some rocking in galley), but she definitely wasn't a bother. Before getting off the plane, the flight attendant complimented her behavior! Yea! My fingers are crossed that she will be that good on the way home.

D also had a great time with her Munchie Mug, which I bought from The Soft Landing. A great store that sells only BPA free products. D and I love her Munchie Mug. She can walk around with her snack, and I don't have to worry about snacks everywhere. The other thing I like about this snack container, as opposed to some of the others out there, is that the top is fabric. This means that I don't need to worry about any scratches or uncomfortable feelings for D when she puts her hand in, and it is a solid top so there will be no crumbs falling out.
We have spent the past week handing out with Nana, Grandpa and Uncle J. D is loving all the attention she getting, and I am loving getting to spend time with my family. We even went to Massachusetts to visit the family there, and a great time was had by all. I even got to spend some time checking out many a house with solar panels. One can dream, right?
We're having a great time, and know that we will enjoy the next 4 days too!
