Hello from the Big Apple! After a few days in Music City for Kelvin’s work conference (no, he does not work for Cydcor…who also happened to have their conference at the same place) we are now in one of our favourite places for family vacation! We had a crazy early flight yesterday morning but we discovered that Andy is much better on morning flights than on afternoon flights. He slept lots and was very smiley.
Also, for some reason, he didn’t poop the entire time we were in Nashville. I think it’s because it was crazy hot and he wanted to conserve. Now, we knew that when he finally decided to poop it would be a really messy one. But, we didn’t think he’d do it on the plane. Right after takeoff from Atlanta to JFK, I felt it. And then I smelled it. And that seatbelt sign couldn’t have come off soon enough. I took him to the bathroom (where the change table was a flat board that came down over the toilet) and braced myself for the job that lay ahead. It was a big one, and I ended up bringing a naked (other than his diaper) baby back to the seat because his onesie was no good anymore. Oh, the joys of parenting.
Anyways, the week was spent in Nashville, and Andy was the prized possession. Instructors and staff from all over came to Kelvin and I, asking for a chance to hold him and telling us how precious (and how chunky!) he was. He took it all in, turning on his charm when necessary. Everyone enjoyed it.
When I have the time, I’ll finish up parts two and three of our Nashville series, then commence with some posts from NYC. As Kelvin has intimated in his Instagram posts, we are reconsidering going this whole trip with just the carrier. Andy starts to get fussy in the afternoon and we end up carrying him. We may decide to buy an umbrella stroller today.
Well, we are currently on the ferry, waiting for it to depart for Governor’s Island. Never been before, but excited to visit! More later!
Oh, and one last thing – my sister introduced me to this game on google maps. Super fun.
