Our first day on the second trip! We are waiting now for our flight in New Orleans. We are so excited!! I’m so nervous that I didn’t pack everything I needed – oh well, too late now.
I can’t even begin to tell you how excited we are! In just a few days we will have our son in our arms and we never have to let him go!
Today has been great so far! Last night Meme and Big Al came to stay with us and they took us to IHOP for breakfast. Then Nan, Pops and Uncle Awesome came to take us to the airport. We had a quick (and light) meal at McAlisters.
We have such good friends here in LaPlace! Missy stopped by earlier to wish us luck. She had Molly and Aaron with her. They are all super excited about meeting our boy. Later this afternoon, right before we left, Scarlett came by and she had some fun travel stuff for us. She gave us all earplugs for the plane, to help with the pressure, and she also had a very cute valentines card for the boy. Inside the card, she put a picture of Stella and on the back she wrote “my friend Stella.” What a neat idea! I put it in the suitcase so that our little boy can get to know his friends before he even gets to America.
I know we still have a long day ahead of us (about 30 hours of travel time), but we are so excited!
