Lucas and I arrived in ABQ today at 9:45 safe and sound after what I thought was going to be a dreadful morning.
Lucas woke up at 5:00 this morning and didn't go back to sleep. He usually wakes up at 9:00, so I was so worried that he was going to go ballistic. He was a good boy, though. Ben came to our gate with us, which is always so helpful. Lucas fell asleep right as we took off, but I had to hold his head up while he slept because he was perched at such an angle in his car seat. He probably slept for 40 minutes, then ate his not-so-tasty Express Jet bagel, followed by a viewing of Teletubbies on his new DVD player.
He got a little mad when we had to turn off the movie, but didn't throw a fit. After we landed Lucas was such a good boy. He walked off the plane all by himself and held my hand the entire way to baggage claim where we found my mom. If you know Lucas, you know having him hold hands and walk sweetly though the airport is a big feat.
I had a hard time getting him down for his nap. He wanted to play with all the toys and the dog. He climbed out of the pack 'n' play over and over, which is new, but managed to sleep for about 1.5 hours in the end.
If you need to get a hold of me, you'll have to email me. I forgot my phone at home. Yes, its true. I, Suzanne, forgot my phone... Ben is going to mail it to me, though.
