Road Trip with Baby

We took our first road trip with the baby and it was a success. We were a little worried about the 4 hour drive...make that 5 hours with breastfeeding stops. It is so funny how our lives revolve around feedings. We departed when the baby had a full stomach and he dozed off right away. He slept for about 3 hours and then woke up ready to eat, so we pulled off at a gas station and took a break for food. We thought that he would stay awake for the rest of the ride since he had been out for three hours, but fortunately he fell back asleep until about 20 mins before we hit our destination.

The weekend was a great get-a-way. We took the little one for his first swim in my parents' pool. He was a little unsure of the water at first, but after a few minutes he loved it! We couldn't have him swim for too long because he is too young for sunscreen yet.

Since the little guy did so great on his first trip, we are looking forward to going on more road trips soon...that is, if gas doesn't keep skyrocketing.
