So I picked him up and put him on the floor in his bedroom to play with his toys while I lowered the mattress. In my head I was thinking this would be a piece of cake and take only a few minutes. Ha! After 30 minutes of messing with it, I realized this was going to be more difficult than I anticipated. Not to mention, Doodlebug was trying to "help" me! So I went downstairs and set Doodles up in his pack and play and I did a really bad thing...don't judge me! I needed to keep Doodles occupied so that I could get to work, so I found a Baby Einstein DVD, unwrapped it, and stuck it in the DVD player on Repeat mode. Doodles loved it and watched it until he fell asleep. Meanwhile, I went back to the crib. I'll spare you the details and give you the concise version. I had to take the entire crib apart and put it back together again without any directions. Keep in mind, I was about 8 months pregnant when the crib was built so needless to say, I didn't have any part in assembling it. I felt like I needed a degree in engineering! Two and half hours later, I finally finished it! I'll end with a picture of Doodlebug wearing his "Future Harvard Freshman" onesie. He better start working on Scholarships now if that's were he plans on attending college. If you look closely, you can see his two bottom teeth!

Above is the real Samuel Adams tombstone.
Overall, we had a great time. Doodlebug loved the plane and especially loved the graham crackers the flight attendant gave him. He didn't cry and didn't act like his ears bothered him. He was such a good baby even when he missed his naps due to our busy schedule.

Finally, we're back in Orlando! Let me catch my readers up on the past week. My First Mother's Day was wonderful. It started with Hubby bringing Doodlebug into our bedroom to give me my cards. Doodlebug started to cry when I took them (he wanted to "taste" them first). My present was the Flip Mino HD video camera. (yeah! thank you Hubby!!) It's a tiny video camera that fits in my diaper bag and it plugs into the computer like a flash drive for easy uploading. So, you know what that means... lots of video is coming to my blog!!!! Next, Hubby's Mom and Grandma came over and Hubby cooked us all a delicious breakfast. He made waffles, eggs, bacon, fruit salad and Mimosas. Mmmmmm!
Then, we packed up and headed down for South Florida to visit with my parents. It was a Mother's Day surprise for my Mom. When we arrived she was shocked and happy. While we were there, Doodlebug took his first dip in the pool. Thanks to my new video camera you can see him!
Hubby had to work down South till Thursday, so we all stayed at my parents house for the week. Today has been filled with laundry and cleaning. Now I have to get ready for our next trip. We leave next week to go to Rhode Island to see Doodlebug's Uncle graduate from College!! Yippee!!! This will be Doodles first flight so you can look forward to lots of pictures and videos coming soon. Now I'm off to read my friends' blogs and cath up on their lives!
