We did it….we went to Thailand with a two month old and lived to tell the tale!
Before I jump into the details of our trip to Thailand over Christmas/New Years, I need to focus on something that scared my new Mommy heart way more than being in a foreign country with a two month old…flying on a plane for 6 hours with a two month old!
I was completely convinced that Hayden would spend all six flights (yes we planned our first vacation with our newborn to have six flights, rookie mistake!) screaming and keeping the entire plane awake the entire time. We came prepared with 80 pairs of ear plugs to pass out to the poor souls who would be stuck on a plane with us. We said many, many prayers to the airplane gods. We packed every rattle and toy Hayden has ever shown any interest in. Mitch and I gave each other pep talks that “we can do this, even if it means standing in the bathroom for 6 hours.” Then we boarded the plane and our newborn did the one thing we were unprepared for: he peacefully slept the entire time. During all six flights, he slept the entire time!
I love this little boy, even if I never, ever know what to expect out of him!
