airplanes and surprises



Two weeks ago, we were very daring parents and took our little 2 month old on an airplane...
believe me, I was scared out of my mind.  I was convinced he was going to scream the whole time and that I would get dirty, horrible glares from everyone on the plane.  but have no fear, he was a little angel.  I'm not kidding, he slept the entire time and didn't make a peep. (sheesh...maybe i should take him on airplanes more often.)

Where were we going, do you ask? UTAH of course.  We planned the trip back in November, but we didn't tell my family.  I just felt so bad about my parents having to leave so soon after Miles was born that I wanted to let them spend more time with him.  So we showed up on my parents doorstep, without any warning.  And keeping a secret for 2 months was definitely worth it because their reaction was hilarious.  If you know my dad, it won't surprise you that he just stood there and stared at us, and then said, "wow."  He doesn't get too worked up, but he claims he was just speechless.  My mom heard giggling from the other room and she just thought my brothers friends had come over, but when we came into the house and she saw us from the top of the stairs, she came jumping down, laughing and crying and screaming.  She gave me a huge hug that involved squishing little Miles between us. ha.  Wade got it all on video, but I'm not allowed to post it on my blog, seeing as my mother is so embarrassed by her enthusiasm. :)

We spent the next two weeks going between our families in Smithfield and Orem.  It was SO GOOD to see family and spend time relaxing and playing with Miles (and having free babysitters!) and eating good food! hello costa vida!

Fun! Glad you were able to be with your families and that Miles was so good for you on the plane. We took Brady on a plane when he was 2months old too. Babies are so funny. They won't sleep in their crib for naps but they will sleep on a loud airplane like it's no big deal. I don't get it :)
