Braden took another airplane trip, but this time he got to be awake for it, and it wasn't a plane just for him:-) He did very well on his flights... since he does not swallow well, we worried about his ears popping, but eventually he would yawn a few times after fussing for a few minutes. But he never cried. He traveled better than mommy, who still struggles with motion sickness.
It was a WONDERFUL trip, as we got to spend some quality time with friends and family, and the baptism renewal was a feel-good celebration. It was nice for the family to get to meet the little man, and most of them just gushed over our sweet little man. Braden got to meet Aunt Shala and his uncles Brent & Scott this trip, as weel as most of his great and great-great grandparents this trip, and those he didn't get to meet, he will see over the Christmas break.
It was a whirlwind trip, and we know that many of you sent our little guy with some gifts, but we had to leave them behind for us to open for him at Christmas time... so your thank-you's will come late. In the meantime, we would like to thank everyone who traveled to come spend the time with us to celebrate. We also want to thank those who made some sacrifices on our behalf, so that we could share in this celebration of life... the Baus family who made it possible for us to get plane tickets home, the Crawshaws who picked us up and let us borrow their van for the duration of the trip, AND baked many treats for us to enjoy, and the Hennen's who graciously lent us a carseat for Braden while we were home.
It was so nice to see everyone, and we can't wait to see you all at Christmas!
Kodi, Brad, Braden
