On December 23rd, Irving, Adele and I took a red-eye flight to Boston to celebrate Christmas. Getting to the airport was hilarious because we also drove our friends and their baby there as well. In our trusty minivan, we fit 4 adults, 2 screaming babies in carseats, 2 large suitcases, 3 medium carry-on suitcases, 2 diaper bags, 1 stroller and 4 carryons. Not sure how we managed that, but it was so fun and a great way to kick off our vacation!
Our flight was overnight so we were banking on Adele sleeping the whole way like she did back in August. But this time around, she has a lot more energy and is very easily distracted so falling asleep wasn’t so easy. I tried nursing her, bottle feeding her and cuddling her, but she only fell asleep when I strapped her to my chest in the carrier and bounced up and down in the galley. Once she was out, I carefully slid back into my seat, and she slept that way for the next 4 hours of the flight. I think our seat-mates were grateful!
When we arrived, Adele was fast asleep in her carseat, despite the hoards of people waiting to kiss her. She didn’t quite know what to do in her jacket, mittens and hat. She’s not used to this cold weather!
(PS, Check out those curls!)
Cute baby tights from Grammie. Adorable!
After lots of playing, cuddling, cooing and eating sweet potatoes….
…It was time for Presents!! Adele got totally spoiled this year. Lots of books, clothes and toys! She was so cute opening her gifts. She sat like a big girl and got excited about everything she got.
I think Adele’s first Christmas Eve was a definitely success. She (and her dimples) had an absolute blast. Thank you to everyone!! We are so lucky. Merry Christmas!!
