Flying High

Yesterday we flew to Alabama for the first time. Daddy will be leaving on a mission trip with our church in Pleasant Grove tomorrow. He will be going to Nicaragua through Baptist Medical and Dental Mission International. We'd appreciate your prayers for him and the rest of the team as they travel and work there, and for the people of Nicaragua that they will be working with.

We were a little nervous about flying with Brett, but he was great! We made it through security quickly and easily--the large stroller even fit through the x-ray machine! Our first flight was a short hop from Ft. Myers to Orlando. He was so interested in looking out the window, the only time he cried was when I tried to lay him down to feed him. The doctor told us to feed him during take off and landing, so he took a bottle while staring out the window. He was so tired that he went to sleep after just a few minutes in the air. I imagine that the noise from the plane helped him sleep.

We had a lay over in Orlando, and they allowed us to take his car seat on the plane on the second flight. He wasn't interested in sitting in it though. There was a little boy across the aisle that he enjoyed playing with. The other little boy would make noises, and Brett would try to copy the sounds. He just cooed and babbled for about half of the flight. He did go back to sleep towards the end of that flight. And when we landed in Birmingham, Marme, Grandmommie, and Granddaddy were waiting on us. Papa was away with the Alabama Singing Men, but he'll see Brett Saturday. We're also planning to drive up to see Ayi Ruthie Saturday after we see Glenn off on his mission trip. I am so glad that Brett enjoys flying!!!

Brett's loved to look out the window...

until he fell asleep.

He stayed awake for most of the second flight.

He enjoyed playing with a two year old little boy across the aisle

and the tray table.

Marme was so happy to see him!

Grandaddy is a funny guy.

  1. how sweet! They needed to have given him his first set of little wings! I love the one of him falling asleep on Mommy - too cute.
