Hayden is doing all sorts of "firsts" lately; the biggest first is traveling. (I can't believe he is already 3 months! It seems like just yesterday, I was pregnant!) He is visiting his grandparents in Texas. We can all agree that is a stressful hurdle to do for the first time. Okay, perhaps it's more of a hurdle for mom than baby.  And I have a confession to make. I cheated.  I didn't do it alone. I had my parents and my sister. Dad had to work (and we are missing him like crazy)... 

The time change wasn't huge, but it was enough to throw us off a bit. We tried to keep a few staples in his life consistent. He loves his Dockatot, so I brought that as a carryon on the plane. It doubled as a changing station for us, too. I just make sure to put diaper pads down on it first.

To make the whole travel experience easier on me, I used Britax B-Agile travel system. I had it shipped to my parents house so my dad could have the car seat ready to go. It's easy peasey to install. And the stroller that works with the car seat is awesome. Very light and easy.  We're keeping it in Texas for our future trips home.
