Anna Maria Island

In a few short weeks, Matthew and I will be jetting off to this amazingly beautiful place. I CANNOT wait! I have been there before but it was only for a day. So I can not wait to go and actually site see and enjoy the beauty of this place. This will be my first time traveling with Matthew, alone at that! Just through the airports though, we are meeting up with family! 

Does anyone have any tips or recommendations as to traveling with a baby. He will be 6 months old when we travel. And any tips on me doing this all alone? And anything I absolutely need with me that I would have never thought of otherwise?? I need all the tips and tricks. I am hoping and praying I don't have THAT child on the airplane who is crying the whole time. Although it is beyond my control, I am going to try to keep him happy. Hubs is a little nervous with it just being me and him flying. Because I will have him + all of his stuff + our suitcase. This is going to be interesting to say the least!

This little get away could not come at a better time though. Hubs will be extremely busy, so we will not get to FaceTime as often as we have lately, which I have gotten quite used to. But that just means it will be THAT much closer to the end of this deployment!! You have no idea how excited that makes me!!

Matthew will more than likely be crawling by then, but I am crossing my fingers he won't be walking yet so that Hubs can see that for the first time in person. But he is already good at standing, minus the balance issue, so we will see.

Any tips and recommendations are greatly appreciated!!

I traveled with my son alone to visit my husband at a training a few times. What worked the best for us was making sure he had a bottle to drink on take off and landing, (or binky) it helps their ears pop. Also having a change of clothes for him and you, you never know. Also having some toys for him to play with, or snacks to eat. Having the stroller helped carry all of the stuff too, then I just gate checked it. Just remember to breath and you will be ok. I hope this helps and the trip goes good for you! Have a great time!
