A 'Lil Video

We just got back from Jocelyn's first trip away from home and it was SOOO good to see family in California. She was not lacking in the kisses and cuddles department this week.

If we're being real here though, yes it was so great to see family but traveling alone with a new baby is HARD. Okay maybe not hard for everyone but traveling alone with a baby that doesn't feed well (hunger strikes galore!!!) and goes from 0-10 in a half a second is hard. I haven't posted about it on here but Jocelyn hasn't been a good eater from day one, it's a daily battle STILL (do you want to hear more about it? I figure no one wants to know THAT much detail but hey if the info could help a momma out there that feels like she's going to lose her mind then I'm all for it) anyways, I thought we could handle it, turns out we could, but that it was just ridiculously stressful for the both of us. All of our trips out were 30 minutes or less for the most part, by some miracle she made it 3 hours at the beach??? but we did our best to enjoy the happy moments that we could. We sure do love our family and getting to spend two weeks with them was such a treat. Thanks for having us California!


  1. Have her doctor check of she is tongue tied (babies that are have a hard time nursing). You doing such a good job mama! So brave to travel alone!

  2. Nice Video. Traveling is tough but not as bad as I thought it'd be. It helped I thought it'd be the worst thing in the world.

    What program do you use to combine your videos?

  3. She's DARLING and you are a champ! I'm traveling all the way across the county with my 2 month old next week for the first time, and I'm slightly terrified. Thanks for your honesty, I'm glad I'm not the only one feeling that way!

  4. Would love to hear about her eating deal. My little one has the opposite problem - she could eat all day and won't sleep unless she nurses herself to bed!!
