Baby's First Road Trip

In anticipation of our longer road trip to Greenville, Robbie and I took a "practice" road trip to Pittsburgh last week to see our friends the Hitchmans and meet their new baby boy.

Baby R is AWESOME at roadtrips.  (Knock on wood).  The trip was a little over four hours, and we stopped just once in each direction for some milk and a diaper change.  Otherwise, he was sleeping or staring out the window and rocking out to my James Taylor-Carole King CD.

I can't tell you how helpful it has been to have friends and family who have gone through and are going through the newborn phase. 

It is simply, the best, to know you aren't alone in this process. 

Les and I have been through a lot together.  A LOT.

Now she's a mom for the second time, and baby Drew has about 3.5 weeks on Robbie.

We shared stories, hints, and some much needed margaritas.

But this sure does beat Freddy's and Rock It.
