I was very nervous about our flight because he's only flown one other time and he was only 5 months old at the time. All I had to do back then was give him a bottle and he was happy as a lark...yeah, that's not the case now that he's almost 14 months old. Luckily, he fell asleep the moment that we got into the air and slept most of the flight!
Now, I love this because any mommy of a toddler will tell you that it's a rare moment when they'll actually sleep on your chest! Ahh, I savored every second! Oh, and please excuse my double chin...the point of the pic is Cooper's peaceful sleeping! ;)
We went to a fun party at my hubby's cousin's house on Christmas Eve and Cooper got to eat some northern type food. This made be a weird comment but the flavors of the food and some of the items, to me, taste different than what we get down here in the south! He ate like a little piggy so I think he approved!
We woke up the next morning bright and early because that's what Cooper does regardless of holiday status so we went to open gifts. My in-laws ADORE Cooper and were thrilled to be up at 6:30 AM to open gifts. No, really they were over the moon with excitement and I was really happy that we could spend Christmas morning with them.

A funny story about our flying home on Sunday. They cancelled our flight home. The airline wanted us to fly to Detroit and layover until Monday or just stay in Pittsburgh until Tuesday. Neither one of these options were appealing to me because I was eager to get my child back to his home and his things. So, we drove 2 hours to Cleveland to fly home to Atlanta. That flight was delayed an hour so it took us 8 hours to get home. I now know that we were the lucky ones as I watched the news this morning to see that some people are literally stuck because the entire airport is closed in a few cities!
The cool thing about Cooper is that he was a total rockstar yesterday despite everything that we went through to get home. He played with a pack of (unopened) peanuts and the window shade for the entire flight home! Awesome!
One last pic (I promise!) of me and my little man on Christmas Day. I just love him!
