Victoria did so well on the flight. I really tried to be a minimalist on this trip, but that is almost impossible with a baby. I think I almost developed tennis elbow yesterday as I hauled my 20lbs "little" miss, her car seat, and our carry-on all over the airport. Those body pump classes certainly helped me not buckle under the weight of it all!
But happily we arrived safe and sound, with several remarks from those on the plane about how good she was. Win!
It's also a safe place for her to look around amidst all the busy-ness or people and dogs running around.
Nana and Grandpa also had fun showing her the train they put under their Christmas tree
I am also getting into the Christmas spirit and took the time the other night to put some Christmas jamberry nail wraps on
Have any of you used these before? I love to have my nails polished but I haven't been a fan of it since Victoria started capturing and shoving my fingers in her mouth. Jamberry wraps are great because they stay on for 2 weeks, don't chip, are non-toxic, easy to apply with just heat and pressure, easy to remove, and don't damage my nails. Perfect for a busy mom!
Tomorrow we will have our annual cookie baking day, which will be a great time for much of my family to meet Victoria or see her again after some time.
What are you up to in the days leading up to Christmas? I am a little sad to be spending this time away from my husband, but I know he is probably enjoying the alone time (and dare I say nap time?).
