Our first family trip

Several weeks ago we returned from our first family trip. We spent 9 marvelous days in Naples, Florida! Packing for such a trip was a nightmare. Our baggage included carson's suitcase, our suitcase, a stroller, a car seat, a walker (one we received the day before our trip that I could not part with!), and one giant diaper bag. We were quite nervous about the flight not knowing how Carson would react to the pressure changes and the long day flying brings. To our surprise he did great! His ears never bothered him, and he loved being surrounded by new people on the planes. I was incredibly grateful not having to be the annoying family with the screaming baby (which, for the record, I do not view as annoying anymore, but instead just feelings of strong sympathy)!
We had a wonderful time in Florida escaping cold Michigan weather, doctors appointments, and other distractions. It was great just being with the family and enjoying ourselves.
Upon our return it was back to reality! The next day we started another intensive session at the Conductive Learning Center (2 hours every morning thru march). It has been going very well. We get lots of attention because there's only one other kid in the class; Greyson of course. It's fun to see the boys beginning to interact even if it is hair-pulling and toy-stealing :)
