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!

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).

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.
