New Orleans

First assignment as a road-family is New Orleans. As many of you know this is my favorite city in the USA so IF we HAD to have a USA job I'm not horribly upset about it being here. Many of you are probably wondering if we drove or flew since we now have a newborn traveling with us. Well at 14 days old London had his first plane ride and he did wonderful. He nursed during take off and landing to prevent ear issues and he slept most the flight. I have to admit I was nervous I was going to be "that" lady on the plane with a baby, but no one even knew he was on the plane really. I got many nice comments. I have to admit the BEST traveling thing with a small child has to be my wrap---I don't know how moms do it trying to drag a stroller around with them. We only added about 5 min on to our normal process and thats wasn't london's fault it was ours.

A New Journey

Well my blogging skills have dropped in the last few months. But for a good reason. Troy and I just had our first child! London Jacob was born 8/2/09 at "home" (the residence inn) in a tub. He was 6 lbs 10oz and 19.5 inches long with bright red hair!!! It was a wonderful day and now a new journey in our lives starts. But don't worry we will still be traveling and I should pick up on my blogging now. One of his first pictures-- (about 30 min old here)
