Hey Monday!

I'm sharing some Wesley pictures because it's been awhile - he's two and a half months old, can you believe that? Can I believe that? no! I'm in love with this kid, especially because for a few weeks now he's been sleeping from 7:30pm to 8am - it's incredible. I need sleep and that first month or so really sucked. My favorite thing is to get him up in the morning. He sleeps on his stomach and when I flip him over he gets so excited and smiles really big and his legs shoot up like he has all this pent up joy and happiness...and then i'm smiling and we're all smiling and this is BEFORE coffee. I've never smiled before coffee before ever...

So anyway, on Saturday we are flying back to the states for Christmas...I'm excited but mostly I'm not excited because I feel like this will wreak havoc on his sleeping all night. Any tips? have you flown across the atlantic with a baby before? What happened?? (please only tell me the good stories).

So much mischief in those eyes :)

Wendy said...

Never flew with kids so no stories to tell but I have a feeling he will sleep fine. Babies are pretty good about adjusting to change. I'm sure Wesley will handle it like a G!

Btw, he is absolutely beautiful!

ellie said...

So sweet. He's really strong. Will you ever call him Wes?

Oh..flying with kids..you'll want to keep that pacifier in his mouth ..especially on take offs. It can really bother their ears..but I'm sure you know that.

It can be weird. My brother peed on my Dad on a flight when he was changing him in a compact bathroom. Another time, my brother threw up on the passenger sitting next to my mom.

Oh my, he is so adorable! I don't have kids yet but a friend of mine recently took her 6-month-old on a flight to L.A. and all went well. She slept most of the time :)

he is absolutely adorable!

i don't have any tips really but i know a cup of jo and the daybook have posted about flying with little ones. does your flight happen to be through the 'night'? wishing you a smooth flight and many more sleep-filled nights!

Hollie said...

He's SO cute.. and off topic, I had a dream last nite that I came to visit you for a weekend, and you made me play pool with a hustler from Boston and he took all of my money. lol!

Sara said...

So sweet! Flying with a two month old....easy peasy, he will surely sleep on the plane, wake up, and sleep again. The annoying part is having to take sleeping baby off of you (or out of stroller) to go through security. In another time zone, at that age, let him sleep his regular sleeping pattern, albeit hours earlier!

Stephanie said...

so adorable! we just got a new puppy and maybe got a couple of hours of sleep last night. glad your lil guy is sleeping through the night now, that must be such a blessing!

Farah said...

He is so incredibly cute! I wana just squish him!!! adorable!!!!!!

Christianna said...

Wesley is pretty much the cutest little boy ever! Good luck with the flying and everything! Hopefully he adjusts fast!

And Christmas in the States should be awesome! How much fun!

Barbara said...

What a cuteeee face :)

Kristen said...

OMG. No advice here, but he is seriously so adorable! Good luck on your trip!

rooth said...

OH MY GOODNESS, he is just adorable. I love the expressions on babies' faces. Just priceless. I was two when my parents took me on my first overseas flight (over 14 hours). Needless to say, I was terrible. I wish you the best of luck on your flight!

Crystle said...

Wish I had words of advice on traveling with baby. Sounds like you'll have to let us know how it went for you, and don't forget the tips and tricks!

Your babe is so adorable. So, so adorable!

Stacey said...

dying from adorableness overload here! oh, i just love him!! so, can you believe that i haven't flown with either of my kiddos(yea not even Zion who is now 3). we've taken road trips but we drive. however,you have no choice but to fly. i think it probably won't be that bad. my only concern is probably the cabin pressure and if it will make his ears hurt...anyway, i'm sure he'll be fine since both mama and dada are there:-). safe trip please!!!!:-)

Bella Bheag said...

What a beautiful boy! I can only imagine the excitement and anticipation of Wesley's adoring family to his arrival in the USA.

Have a merry time!

Holly said...

his hoodie is soooo cute! and WOW at how long he sleeps, thats in-fucking-credible :) that requires the F-bomb :) haha. jonas sleeps from 10pm to 7am and i thought that was good! LOL

Helena said...

Are he and Bama bff's yet?

Mary Lou said...

He is the most beautiful baby ever, well, almost. You were a beautiful baby too. I predict that he will sleep on the plane and you will have a good trip :)

maria said...

oh my! I can't believe I missed getting to congratulating you on the birth of your gorgeous little boy!!!! CONGRATS! he is just beautiful. Hope you are settling into motherhood just fine. xx

Lady Grey said...

Oh my gosh he is SO ridiculously cute!!! What a bundle of joy : )
I sure hope my little guy follows suit and is sleeping that well by 2 months. Here's hoping!

I hope the flight goes well and that Wesley adjusts easily to the time change.

Mat said...

heyyy here he is!

Josie said...

You will be absolutely fine flying with him at that age. He'll probably sleep most of the time and if anyone stresses it will be you not him! If you can't take your pram to the plane doors a sling is useful for freeing arms. Feed him as you take off and land but other than that don't fret! It's toddlers that are a bugger to fly with apparently!

bregje said...

Don't worry about flying with Wesley. He's a good sleeper if he already sleeps through the night this young(just a tad bit jealous ;)... he'll sleep on the plane. As said before, let him drink during take off and landing. And make sure you get seats with a basinet in front of you (I hope you will read this before you fly), it's perfect. No tips for the time difference. My eldest adjusted in a couple of nights... just prepare yourself for broken nights. Enjoy your holidays!

thais said...

he is SO adorable ;) and good for sleeping that much at two months old! unfortunately I don't have good outcomes from crossing the oceans with a baby, so I 'll spare you. have a fun and safe trip, happy holidays dear!

megan lane said...

He is darling!! Best of luck with the transatlantic flight and sleep schedule adjustment!! Hope you can enjoy the time with your family :)

Rachel said...

What a precious lil' man! Love these photos.

Amanda said...

Wesley is "having his nights" -- yay! Good for him and good for you! Now, tell me, did you go all Bringing Up Bebe on him or what?? Please tell me how you got him to have his nights! Cluster feeding before bedtime? Just the pause? I NEED to know!

Oh, My Darling said...

Krystal, happy 2013! So I've taken a huge hiatus from blogging and am getting back into it -- imagine my delight when I saw that you now have an adorable little guy! Many congratulations -- looks like you'll have a wonderful new year!

Annie said...

He is SUCH a cutie!!! I'm so happy he's been sleeping so well.. I hope the flight/trip didn't mess that up too much!

Erica said...

How can you not smile with that cutie looking atcha??!! I'm the same way with my pups. I never used to smile in the morning, but they are always just so happy to see me that how can I not smile anymore??!!

Erica said...

Omg, he is just precious. God Bless!!

What an incredibly sweet little face. And how lucky that he's such a champion sleeper! I hope your trip didn't disturb his rhythm too much.
