The flight

OH MY! I have SO MUCH to catch up on! I've been avoiding it since we got home Tuesday night.
First of all THANK YOU for all of your comments on flying. They were a huge help and the flight went very smoothly. I let Sierra crawl around the airport a lot before we boarded. I was a stressed mess but the packed airport seemed to be amused by her speedy crawling everywhere. The lollipop was perfect for take off. She LOVED it and it kept her occupied for a while. They sure make a huge mess though! She dropped it at some point and I never found it so it was probably stuck to the person's bag behind us. Oops! But seriously which would you rather have? A screaming baby in front of you or a sticky bag? lol
I got her a new toy that suctioned onto the tray which was great because she couldnt throw it and I was lucky enough to get an aisle seat, a nice man who had kids and an older lady who loved Sierra, sit by me.
She just started getting fussy when we were descending so it's a good thing it was only an hour flight.
It was a relief to see my Mom and little sister, Amber waiting for us when we got off. We went to Olive Garden for lunch and then off to the mall to do some shopping in the states (I fly into Buffalo, NY when I go home because it's a lot cheaper than an international flight) before we got back to Canada, the land of expensive everything and high taxes.
We were exhausted when we got home!
The next day I FINALLY got my hair done after 6 months of nothing so it was much needed.
On to the next post...

I am so glad things went well with the flight. The suction toy on the tray is a great idea! It looks like you guys had a lot of fun on your trip! I've never heard of pudding painting but it looks like fun!
