New York day one!!

New York day one!!

So, it took me a couple days to get this posted…forgive me.

First of all, I feel like I could do a car seat commercial right now. Graco, Chico, Baby Trend…I don’t care! Our last flight with Kendall was MISERABLE… like I wanted to throw her out the window bad. This flight, however, it was like a different kid! Praise God for some good mommy friends who told me to put her in a car seat on the flight (listen to wisdom, mommys!) She was fantastic. Any mommy having this issue?? Put them in a car seat. Yes, its an extra ticket, but I know my sister in law recently told me she’d rather take a 15 hour car ride than a 2 hour flight with her kid at this age… I agree that it is worth it! Matched with a husband who insisted he sit between the two girls on the flight, it was a very peaceful 2 hours in air. And they did wonderfully!

I’m trying my best to keep this move from being overwhelming for the kids, so we are decidedly taking things slow…hence, the late video. Although, the house is almost done, so watch for that post soon! Our goal for day one was to get the kids room set up, so they (mainly Jozlyn. Kendall just does whatever Jozzy does :)) would have a space for themselves during all the change. Jozzy has been excited to share a room with sissy for a while now. I’ll post pics of the house in the next “new spots” post! For now, here is a look at our crazy day, the day that changed our lives….  the day we became New Yorkers.


Now, don’t be shy…share the love! What are some of the best tips and tricks for traveling with kids through an airport? Leave a comment and let me know.
