We left this past Saturday morning and returned late Monday night, and Elijah did a SUPERB job!!! We really are so amazed and grateful to have such a chill baby. So many people remarked at how great he did! Whew. :)
Part of why we wanted to travel so badly so quickly was so that we wouldn't miss the possibility of Elijah meeting his last living great grandparent. My Grandpa S is 93 years old, fighting bad dementia, and possibly an onset of some more serious health concerns. I couldn't wait for Christmas to be able to see him. You just never know how long he'll be here.
My dear cousin April was also able to be there. What a joy to have her also be able to meet Eli! She fed him, hugged him, kissed him, and enjoyed loving on him.
Isn't that just the sweetest?! These pics make my heart so happy. It was like Elijah KNEW it was a big deal. He just hung out with Grandpa like there was no place he'd rather be.
