North Carolina

Last Friday through Monday, my mom, Grayson and I took a quick trip to Charlotte to introduce G to his great-grandparents, great aunt and uncle, and some of my cousins. It was great to be able to have everyone meet the little one, but also was a nice break for me. There were plenty of hands willing to hold, feed, and change Grayson, and I was even able to get a few naps!

Nothing better than a bath in the sink after a long plane ride!

Grayson did great on the plane. He cried both times on landing, but 10 minutes of crying on a 2.5 hour flight- I’ll take it! Going through security was hectic, but my mom and I were able to do it pretty seamlessly (I have NO idea how I would have done it by myself- I could not have taken off my shoes and jacket, removed my electronics from my bag, taken the carseat off the stroller frame, folded the stroller up, put everything on the conveyer belt, all while holding a baby…impossible).

First time meeting their great-grandson

We took lots of pictures of Grayson with his great grandparents. My grandfather has really declined in health the past few months, and I wanted to make sure to document this trip because sadly, I don’t know how many more times Grayson will get to see his Great-Grandaddy 🙂

It was also fun to hang out with my cousins Amy and Jennifer (who are sisters). They are both pregnant, and, get this- have the EXACT same due date! How crazy is that?! We had a great time talking about baby names and I tried to give them advice about what they really needed to register for and what to leave off the list- without seeming too pushy.

Four Generations

It was a great trip, but too short! I really hope we can make it back out there again- maybe at Christmastime when there will be a few more babies around!
Grayson loves his Great Grandaddy!

    Sounds like an awesome trip. And Grayson is such a cutie! As always! I hope you cousins got some good ideas from you – I would have loved having someone like that to talk to when I was pregnant.

    So glad you had a great trip and all went well. So special to have four generations together!!!
