Connor experienced his first road trip over Memorial Day weekend and lets just say it will be a while before we do another one! On Friday, he had his 4 month check up and of course that also meant 3 shoots. The doctors appointment went really well and Connor got the go ahead to start eating solids. He weighs 15 1/2 pounds and 24 1/2 inches long, definitely no signs of eating trouble!
After the appointment Matt took over and I went to work. They went home and Matt was able to experience the challenge of getting stuff done and trying to entertain Connor. Needless to say, Matt persuaded Connor to nap for the entire day. We finally got out of Memphis around 4 and we had a 6 hour drive ahead of us (not including traffic and stops). Connor did so good on the car ride, all he did was sleep. We finally got to Reid's (Matt's brother) house around midnight and as soon as we parked the car Connor's eyes opened. Since he had slept all day he thought that it was play time, but Matt and I were exhausted.
Connor was having a hard time adjusting to the new environment and I'm sure the shoots weren't making it any easier. Long story short, we came home a day early. He was definitely excited to back in the only home that he knows and even more excited to stretch out in his crib (instead of being cramped in the pack n play).
