Tips please

Edit 2/19/06 : Do I need a bassinet for a 6 month old.. she doesn't lay in the one at home... She only lays in her crib at night? The doc said to give something to drink to the baby on takeoff and landing..? Anything else.. and yes we are flying coach... I wish we were getting in firstclass, wouldn't that be nice. It's like that line from Jerry Maguire, " First class used to be a better meal, now it's a better life"!

Any tips on flying with a 6 month old? Anything essential that I should bring with me? What worked for you? I have always been the person that never wanted to sit next to the "kid" on the plane.. especially the one that was crying.. and now that it's going to be ME... I just wanted to know what's worked... Any advice is appreciated.
So D is recovered, took some time off work, and is on the mend. It was kinda worrisome, but I just wanted him to feel better. So I made sure that he walked around more, held the baby. I hope he is feeling better.

The baby has liked having D home all week. It's been funny, anytime D comes up to her, she lifts her arms up, thinking she is going to get picked up. He thought that was funny, and kept walking up to her, and then away.. she kept lifting her arms up and then let them down.. and then when she figured out what daddy was doing, she started to get upset and fake-cried, then she was picked up and giggled like crazy.

I wish there were jobs that we could be at home for. I am glad I get to stay home and see my baby grow up, but I know that there are days that D wishes he could see more moments. I know there are also days that I wish I got to spend more time with adults and work. I think that this is the best for now, and maybe when she is a bit older that I will work as a nurse.

Thanks for all the comments for D's recovery! Each and everyone was appreciated.
D's co-workers were so awesome and send him a bouquet of yellow (Texas) roses! It was so nice, and family and friends sent cards. We are so lucky with the family and friends we have!

Update on the Hubs

Ok so D had a "gallstone attack"... very painful, from Friday late night into early Saturday morning.. he has had these before.. and though they are not life threatening it is very painful.. this is one of the things that you can equate with the pain of childbirth.. it's also similar to trying to pass a kidney stone...
anyway so sometime in the afternoon on Saturday he calls a family friend (read : doctor) and she tells him to get checked out in the local ER.. so off we go.. and when we get there we wait.. they do their x rays and all that fun stuff.. and then we find out he will get admitted.. and last night to this morning is was feeling better.. the gallstone was passed..

The surgeon comes in to look at all his numbers, and while they are going back to normal, they stated that it was better that the gallbladder come out.. so about 11:30 or so.. they went off.. he was really nervous.. but did well.. the doctor was done in about 1 hr. Said the surgery went very well.

Before baby and I left, he was able to eat dinner, and take a walk around the hospital with us. He is very sore, (understandable) but ready to come home and rest and be around his girls!

Thank you for all your thoughts, prayers, and support!

News about the Hubs....

ooo... so we were going to try to do something romantic for Valentine's day... well didn't quite turn out that way... D is in the hospital tonite.. he is going to get his gallbladder out (well most likely) they are still checking him out.. but that's what it looks like.. so those of you who come by this and are inclined to do so.. please say a quick prayer.
Thanks. Will keep you updated!

Sorry for the lack o posts... I have been catching up on my shows after the lil one is asleep.. yes.. til MIDNIGHT.. yes I know I should just go to bed.. but I can't sleep... so i flip on the tv.. and it's so nice seeing all those old sitcoms.. I was flipping through yesterday.. and saw CNN and headline news... it's all BAD stuff.. all the time.. who the hell wants to watch that.. why can't they have a good news channel? Or something better than who does what, who was shot, etc... it's so depressing. I can't watch news anymore.. really haven't watched much of the news sinec 9/11... I think a lot of ppl haven't... it's just too hard to watch.. too much...

So any good movies lately? I really have been wanting to see a few... but don't want to go by myself, and the lil one is not ready to accompany us to one.. Oh but I am DEFINITELY getting WALK THE LINE when it comes out on DVD on the 28th... I am so excited for that... Oh Joaquin!
