I decided to write this blog to document the story of my journey into Mommyland, and all the trials, tribulations, joys and laughter that comes with it. I hope you enjoy my very personal look at trying to achieve the superhuman skill of raising children!

Roadtrip! (Week 7, Days 1-3)
Over the river and through the woods...
This weekend we went to Fort Wayne to visit my parents and spend some quality time with Maddy and the grandparents. It was also the first roadtrip with a baby, and all the joys that come with it. Who knew that babies require so much gear? We packed several more bags than normal for a short weekend trip including diapers, baby monitor, sound machine, and several change of clothes in case of diaper blow outs.
The drive was fairly uneventful, with Maddy waking up once for a changing/feeding. We arrive at my parents house, where they are anxiously awaiting our arrival. To be accurate, they are awaiting Madeline's arrival - they couldn't be happier to see her after 6 weeks, and spend the next few hours fawning over her. I actually thought my mom would've slept sitting up that night if Madeline continued to sleep on her.
We enjoyed a few days of extra hands and help, and Maddy once again had no issue with the change of scenery for sleeping locations. I'm becoming increasingly aware of the fact that babies will do what they like, and we are all just figuring out how to accommodate them.
