Baby on Board

Well I have been kicked out once again as Steve comes to his last 2 weeks of studying for the bar. I think it will be easier for him to study every day as long as he wants, without having to worry about getting home in time to see us. Normally he's really great about spending the evenings with us, but it's getting down to the wire and I could tell that all he wants to do with his time is study. And I can understand that...it's only the most important test he'll ever take.

But leaving means once again taking Easton on a plane by myself. I get very apprehensive about it these days. My favorite thing are the looks I get in the boarding area, and as I walk to my seat. You know, the looks that say, "oh great, a baby." I have given those looks before. I don't like being on the receiving end of them so much. I feel the pressure to try so hard to keep him quiet so I don't disturb everyone else's flight. It was just so nice when he was younger, I didn't have to worry about that as much because he would just fall asleep from the motion and lay peacefuly the entire time. But apparently 10 month old babies don't like to sit still. Weird. He had to sit on my lap this time since the plane was full, so we spent the entire hour and 20 minutes bouncing, playing peekaboo with our surrounding passengers, throwing books on the floor, picking them up, throwing them on the floor, picking them up...you get the idea. All those things we do to keep an overtired baby entertained. I finally resorted to shoving cheerios and goldfish in his face for the last few minutes...that worked like a charm. I was nervous the whole time and trying desperately to keep him busy as best I could with about 2 feet of space. By the time we landed I didn't even care that I had orange crumbs all over me and my entire body was sweaty, I was just so happy that he didn't scream the whole time.

So here we are back in Eugene. And just in time for the Country Fair. Too bad you're gone Ilene, I know how much you would love going there!

My goodness I thought you were making another type of announcement! Sheesh!

Well call me tomorrow if you have time and we can do lunch or Jamba or something! It'll be sweet. :)

steve said...

I thought she was making an announcement too. Whheeeewwwww!

Brianne said...

I'm glad you actually made in on the flight...too much drama with airlines and babies. Congratulations! Maybe we could do a "mini" girl's night. Marcus is still out of town tonight...anyone?

Brynne, Aaron and Cade said...

Love this post. Maybe because I can totally relate but don't think it gets better the older they get cause it doesn't! Man this parenting stuff is hard. But well worth it! I enjoyed our drive from the airport last night. My only regret is that we couldn't visit longer. Love you!

Emily said...

I know, it was so great having you pick me up...the ride was so fast! Thanks again! Are you coming down tomorrow?

Chelsea said...

YEA! You are back! P.S. Tara is bed resting it all weekend. We should go get her a Jamba tomorrow and bring girls afternoon over to her house.

Ilene said...

What?! You go back to Eugene for a visit and not to Liberty Lake?!! What is up with your priorties? Actually, I am taking off to Chicago for a couple of weeks so you are quickly forgiven.

I hope Eugene isn't too sad without my being there. I guess you always have the Country Fair to help ease the pain. . . or at least have access to a drug or two that can help :)

Flying with kids is always a gamble. I got some strange looks when I flew to Spokane from Eugene with me and the boys. What I am most excited for is when I fly back from Chicago by myself with the boys-- it is like 5 hours long (Dan comes home before we do). That will probably be a blog too.

Emily said...

I can't imagine 5 hours of picking up books and eating cheerios...wow!

Alifinale said...

Em, I so feel for you. People can be so rude to babies on planes and it can be so stressful. This makes me think of something I need to blog about...Just you wait.

So sad I can't be there to see you. Hope you guys have some good girl times. BTW, I thought you were making an announcement from your title too. WHOA!

Amy: said...

HAHAHAH- that's funny- I thought you were announcing you were pregnant also. OK- the plane story is really funny. BUT- I was around Easton for an hour and 10 minutes and he was perfect- didn't make a sound. SO sorry emily- I don't really believe you- and everyne i know that has met your baby always saiys, "oh my gosh- he is the best baby- he is so vcute- and he is so good." so sorry-----OK number 2 on the list- WHAT THE HECK YOU DON"T LIKE CHOCOLATE? CHIPS?!!!!!! WHAT THE HECK!! YOu almost gave me a heart attack at age 22. I forgive you though, I guess as long as you like some kind of chocolate your safe. Love you!

Amy: said...

OH yewah- will you please answer my questions referring to your traveling? plane driving? and do you live in idaho?! haha-

John said...

One time we were flying back to Oregon with our kids, and Tallie, who was probably about 1 at the time, was screaming uncontrollably during the descent. I think the altitude change was messing with her ears or something. Anyway, there was nothing we could do to pacify her. It was awful. Then this stupid flight attendant comes over and demands: "can't you give her a binky or something?!" Holy crap, like we hadn't thought of that?? Anyway, I feel for you, that is no fun especially when you are by yourself.

Steve said...

Hey John, Since you didn't adhere to the flight attendant's instructions, were you arrested following the landing? Just kidding. I'd bet money that flight attendant didn't have kids. What did you say to her/him?

Emily said...

I can't believe she said that to you! I would have punched her!

John said...

Yeah, I'm sure she was not a parent. She looked like she was probably a middle-aged, never-married, man- and child-hater. I was like, "um, yeah, we've tried that. We've tried her bottle, toys, everything. We are doing all we can B%#@*&, SO BACK OFF!" Okay, so I didn't really say that last part. But I think it was all I could do to not punch and/or swear at her. Destiny has had to take both kids on the plane by herself when they were like 1 and 3 years old each; I don't know how she did it.

Lizzie said...

I feel your pain Em. I flew with Tanner by myself 5 plus times that first year he was born. He was great until about a year then yikes! One time we were flying and Shad accidentally packed Tanner's shoes before we got him dressed (and refused to find them again) so there was shoeless Tanner walking around the public floors, me who hadn't showered (it was an early flight) and Tanner cried the whole flight. We get off and see that some of Shad's best (richest) clients were sitting about 4 rows back. They said, "oh, that was your baby..." while watching him run wild in baggage claim without shoes on. What a great memory. Oh, not to mention I'm sure there was food all over his clothes and face because that's just the way one year olds are. Good luck on the flight back!

Sharon/mom said...

I think that is the hardest thing on earth!! We had a layover once in Boise, and they wouldn't let us get off the plane because they claimed they were just picking up the mail. Rebecca was about 19 months and I was about 7 months pregnant. The "20min" at most according to them, turned into 45 min w/0 air conditioning and a full plane. Rebecca started crying and didn't quit until we took off. I swore I'd never do that again!! I did though of course.

[url=http:/www./buyingmarijuanasale.info] Buying marijuana[/url] remains one from the most abused drugs specifically among the youth and has more than 200 street names for example mary jane, weed, herb, pot, ganja, hash, among others. It comes from a Cannabis Sativa plant and is green or brown in appearance. The drug is derived from the flowers, leaves, seeds, and stems from the marijuana plant. Marijuana contains more than 400 chemicals but the main active ingredient is delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and is responsible for the drug's psychoactive and mind-altering side effects.

The psychoactive influences of marijuana may possibly vary depending on the route of administration, or in uncomplicated terms, how a person uses the drug. High doses of this drug can cause hallucinations, delusions, paranoia, and anxiety. Long-term users could possibly have decreased interest in goals, hampered concentration, drowsiness, and euphoria --- all of which could possibly eventually lead to inappropriate decisions, poor physique coordination, and memory loss. Marijuna use may can also bring severe harm to the lungs, impair respiratory functions, and ruin sexual wellness. Marijuana may cause critical harm to lungs, far more severe than cigarettes mainly because it truly is inhaled deeply and held for longer periods than cigarettes. Marijuana may well interfere with male sexual functions and reproduction by increasing vasodilation within the genitals and ejaculation complications. It may well also bring about lessening of sperm count and degeneration. The females, about the other hand, may encounter suppression from the ovulation procedure, disruption of menstruation cycles, and damaged eggs. Excessive use of marijuana above extended periods of time lead to depression, loss of libido, and impotence. The outcomes of marijuana is associated with lower fertility rates and elevated risk of producing abnormal embryo.

In addition to these outcomes of marijuana abuse and [url=http:/www./buyingmarijuanasale.info] marijuana sale [/url], there are other parts of the body that are adversely affected by the use of marijuana. The chemicals found in this not [url=http://www.legalweed.drugreviews.info] legal weed[/url] have been reported to damage the brain's sensory reactions. High doses of marijuana also leads to incidences of hallucinations, delusions, paranoia, and anxiety.
Blood vessels may also expand due to vasodilation and may perhaps trigger reddening in the eyes. The outcomes of marijuana might be heightened if coupled with other street drugs like cocaine and Lysergic acid Diethylamide (LSD).

Its never too late to break the habit, or a lot more appropriately, the [url=http://www.cannabishigh-pillshigh.info] marijuana high[/url]. It could possibly seem complicated since it's 1 on the most offered drugs that may very easily be acquired. People who want to quit marijuana use normally knowledge sleeplessness, irritability, elevated aggression, and other withdrawal symptoms. However, overcoming the addiction and the withdrawal symptoms is not an impossible task. For some, being confined to a drug treatment facility and counselling may perhaps be needed to break the habit. Studies show that far more than 120,000 people will enter a drug treatment facility to aid them in their marijuana troubles. With the appropriate tools and attitude, quitting smoking and reducing the health consequences of secondhand smoke might be simpler than others think. Understanding ill-effects of marijuana to sexual wellbeing and overall well-being is essential in ending the said addiction.
By the way, [url=http://legalwaystogethigh.drugreviews.info/Lions-Tail-Marijuana-Alternatives.html] legal bud[/url] dont work! Just saying cause some mislead you into thinking its some sort of legal marijuana alternatives, which is absolutely lie!
