sleeping meds

we leave on saturday for a european vacation with a nine month old. {are we slightly crazy?!} i'm really nervous about packing for 10 days and a 14 hour flight there and back.

first thing on the packing list: 
happy baby sleeping meds*

don't judge! i'm a nurse in the peds ICU, i give stuff waaaaay stonger than this all day long. and my pediatrician told me i could do it. she'll be fiiiiine!

{plus, in case you didn't know, children's benadryl brand, along with tylenol, was recalled, but the walgreens brand versions are still safe for use}

*also of note, i am in no way advocating drugging your baby for regular sleep. however, if you're flying over an ocean in a hollow tube for 14 hours with no escape and then dealing with a 9 hour time change, or something like that, and want some semblance of sanity for you and your baby, it's definitely warranted*

sweet dreams!

any moms out there have experience with long flights or words of wisdom you want to pass on?

genius baby!

daddydave, baby S and i were hanging out (with auntie K too) as daddydave was about to go out of town for work. Scarlett was making super cute giggles so daddydave wanted a video for his travels. then Scarlett started showing off all her new tricks. what a genius!

it's incredible to me how much she understands slash recognizes the things we say and the songs we sing. what else can she understand? probably everything; she's jut a sponge soaking it all in. amazing!

oh, i love her so much! such a proud mamma moment!
