A couple of days ago, Avery had her first flight on a plane (while outside the womb). She actually did pretty well. Our flight was delayed about 45 minutes. She fell asleep a little bit before the flight, and slept for the first 2 hours of the flight.
|I don't know what Mommy was so worried about...I'm easy!|
She woke up with about an hour left....ate...hung out with mommy....and didn't fuss until they took too long opening the cabin door and she wanted OUT of the dang carrier. I picked her up and let Mark be a pack horse until we got to baggage claim so that I could carry her. This made her happy.
She thoroughly enjoyed having Grandparents to give her added attention that night. The next day we went to her first Christmas Eve service...So I dressed her up. She did really well during the service, except for the projectile spit-up all over Mommy, Avery and the floor. Luckily, I packed 4 spit-up cloths. Always prepared!

Her first Christmas morning started at 5:30am...Avery doesn't believe in switching to central time, or sleeping in. What she DOES believe in is joyful screaming...which she started doing for the first time on Christmas day - what fun!
|Mommy is inventing stories - I'm a perfect angel.|
|A reindeer hat. really?|
Her other new trick this week? Rolling over from her back to her tummy! She gets quite annoyed when her arm gets stuck under her body though.
|Does this reindeer make my butt look big?|
|Sleep is all mommy wanted for Christmas.|
|I'm the perfect present.|
She even decided to ride a Longhorn for Christmas...a present from Grandma and Pops.
|Bull-riding is next!|
A great first Christmas! We still have the dreaded long car ride to my In-laws for that visit before heading home via plane.
