In less than 24 hours, Greg, Claira & I will be on our way to Louisiana! I’m actually starting to relax and get VERY excited to see Mikhael and his family. He & Cyndi will meet us at the airport. I will be sure to post pictures as soon as I can to keep you up to date.
This will NOT be the first airplane trip Greg & I have taken together, although . We flew to Springfield, MO, one year ago for a baby shower held by my former coworkers at MedPay. (Hello, everybody!) I was pregnant at the time, and actually got pulled aside and searched on our way out of Springfield. I was pretty concerned when they were waving that hand held sensor around my pregnant belly, but Claira turned out just fine, so NO worries!
She did, however, keep us up until 2 am this morning. Neither one of us could determine the cause of her apparent misery, but she finally konked out and we were all able to get a few hours of sleep. Eventually. This, after a REALLY long day that started out with a near fall out of the shower in the a.m. and ended with my washing Greg’s leather wallet while racing to finish laundry for packing for our trip and helping Greg with some of his final papers. I was SO glad when I woke up this morning because I knew yesterday was behind me, and tomorrow was ahead of me.
It is certainly time to meet my son and introduce him to Greg and to his sister, Claira. Greg is incredibly supportive and I am very happy that he is taking this part of my journey with me. It really means a lot to know that he understands how important this is to me and to be as supportive as he is, even though he will not only be meeting Mikhael, but many new people in unfamiliar surroundings.
Anyway, I will keep my blog as up to date as I can and will post pictures asap!!!
