Since we had about a hour and half to burn while waiting to board our flight we tried one last time to get Ethan to sleep by setting up his travel crib (this incidently is the best porta crib ever. It is super light weight, comes in its own case, and pratically unfolds itself. It seriously takes only 10 seconds to set up and maybe half a minute to pack back up. Oh, and it's super comfy. Okay enough raving):
As you can see he would have none of it. We tried to block out the overhead lights with our jackets but still he was too excited to sleep.
Ethan's first plane ride!
Luckily once we boarded he slept great! Good thing we brought his carseat, that was a lifesaver. He did have a mini meltdown 5 hours into the flight but it turned out he was hungry so not really his fault. Other than that it was a pretty good flight.
While we had brought a backpack full of toys and books, he happily spent the majority of time on the plane just playing with his feet:
He even was happy during diaper changes. I think we have a traveler in our hands!
