Collen did very well with the travelling! I was impressed. He got restless from time to time, but once he settled down and took a nap, he was fine. He ended up taking most of his afternoon naps in the car, or in his stroller, and he did so, so well. At night, he slept with me. I bought a bed rail/guard as a precaution, and it turned out to be a smart purchase. He rolls all over the place, so if he wasn't bumping into me, he at least had that guard to prevent him from meeting the floor!
It was nice to get back home to Jeremy. We missed "da da" so much! And I missed my bed....and Collen's crib. I love sleeping with him and getting those middle-of-the-night snuggles, but I sleep so much better with him in his crib. :) It was great to get away for a few days. Staying home...every day can seem like groundhog's day...the same thing over and over again. It was great to be able to get a shower without worrying about what Collen was doing. I was able to eat a meal while it was hot! It was nice to have some help. I love doing it all for Collen, but Mom needs a break sometimes, too.
It was nice to spend time with my parents. We definitely had some laughs and have some fun stories to tell...over and over again. We made some fun memories. :)
Here are some pictures from Collen's first trip to the mountains!
