Our first flight, from Addis to Amsterdam, was smooth sailing.
It was Bo's bedtime, and we had a bulkhead seat in economy comfort - with a bassinet!
Doug & I were able to get quite a bit of sleep on that flight!
We love flying KLM. The flight attendants were amazing.
One in particular was obsessed with Bonsa - she gave us a little bag of goodies
Then, there was the flight from Amsterdam to Detroit.
We were on a Delta plane - not as nice as KLM.
The flight attendants were... less than helpful.
We were still seated in economy comfort, but we were in the middle row in between 2 other people.
Thankfully, those people were more than understanding and helpful with our fussy little guy.
Bo took a couple short naps, and one 2-hour nap. He slept like this:
I made several quick dashes with Bo to the bathroom, which PRAISE THE LORD,
was very close and always unoccupied when I needed it.
Bo went through three outfits.
We ended up carrying him off the plane in a white onesie, wrapped in a blanket.
We stopped before immigration to change him into his last clean outfit,
in hopes that it looked like we had it together.
I am just so thankful that he didn't have any major screaming fits...
After getting through immigration, we walked out the door and were greeted by sweet friends & fam.
A huge thank you to Kennerly for capturing this special moment!!
Thanks to Ellie & Janni for driving us home and taking our family of three picture at home:
We were so excited to see that our sweet neighbors had decorated our porch!
Thanks for heading that up, Lindsay & Maria!!
It's been pretty difficult for me being away from my family, so I am incredibly thankful for friends who have helped with our transition. A huge thank you to people who have provided meals for us: Katy, Kennerly, the Finks, the Colemans and the Townleys! We are so blessed by our loved ones.
