In the Heart of Illinois

Well, we are here in IL...and I have already eaten at Monical's....woohoooo!

Matthew was pretty close to perfect on the trip. I bought some new trip toys (will share about them later) which helped, but I give him the credit for being such a great kid that day. The only downer was that he woke up from his morning nap at noonish and besides a 15 min snooze on the plane, he didn't go to sleep until about 11:30pm (10:30 our time). You may remember that when M starts losing sleep, it compounds like crazy until he is only sleeping like 1 minute every 24 hours...OK, exaggeration....but true to form, he only slept about 5-6 hours last night because he was overtired. Thankfully, he was very easy going today and didn't seem too affected.

Smooch took some pics, but I'm too tired to upload...will try tomorrow!

Glad you made it. Hey! If he keeps waking up...put him in the bed with Smooch!

I am so glad M was good for you on the trip! Anxious to hear about the trip toys... I will need some good ones soon!!! :)

Sending sleepy vibes to IL...


Mark, Rebecca and Sophia said...

Glad all is well. Hope your little man sleeps well tonight!

Tracy said...

Glad to here you are back again. Hopefully, one of these trips soon we can make a plan to see each other!

Tell you mom we are still praying for her. Love you!

Tami said...

You gotta LOVE IT when a trip with a child or children goes smoothly! Enjoy your stay:-).

Hope Matthew is sleeping well for you and you are having a good visit. Looking forward to hearing about your trip toys as I finalize our packing for Hawaii! Got Ainsley her own backpack to carry all the new odds & ends I picked up from the dollar bin at Target that will ONLY be introduced mid-flight!

I have lurked on your blog for awhile. We have a son from Guatemala (home for a year). My close friends are adopting from Taiwan. Anyway, I am delurking because you got my mouth watering by mentioning Monicals. I am free Central Illinois, but live in Nashville, TN now. When we are home we always make a point of going to Monicals. Oh, I wish I could have some now!
