On the way home we had an empty seat...William took it.
and was so glad to be out of our laps.
William was great there and back. On the way back he slept less but was not too cranky. He smiled at other passengers and played with A LOT of toys. At times I had to pull out the big guns: sunglasses, cell phones, Daddy's hat, but overall I could not ask for a better traveling buddy. Once we landed in Birmingham William could not stop laughing. We believe he knew he was finally home. He was so happy and did not even fuss on drive home (even stopped to pick up dinner).
