Since Scott was leaving today we decided to "triple child proof" our house. Especially now since Judah is walking and getting into everything! He can also break some of my child locks on my cabinets! So we bought better baby gates for the stairs. These open so I don't trip over them when I am taking down the laundry and try to hop over so I don't wake up Judah from a nap. Scott decided to put up the crib bumper along the stairwell because the gaps are spaced pretty wide. Although I would never leave Judah alone in the hall way we just wanted to be extra safe while Scott is gone.
When Judah woke up from his nap this afternoon he was beside himself because Scott was packing. He kept trying to take things out of Scott's suitcase or tried crawling inside of it. I took him downstairs and he wanted nothing to do with me, or food, or water, he just wanted his daddy. He was so upset and still pretty sick so he started blowing these huge snot bubbles.
I think he knew Scott was leaving and at this point I was crying. Since 9/11 I hate flying, I knew the pilot of the plane that went down in our area and I don't like talking about it. So by Judah freaking out made me freak out and we were just all crying. This was really hard.
Before we dropped Scott off at the airport we had a family Chick Fil A dinner date night. Gave Judah some of the vanilla milkshake since it was a special night.
Judah was content teething on the cheerio containers and eating the occasional nugget or cheerio.
Drove Scott to the airport and he quietly got out, grabbed his bags and went inside. We didn't want to make a big deal so Judah wouldn't have a huge meltdown. The ride home after dropping someone off at the airport is the longest drive....
Praying time will fly by quickly....Judah is being extra feisty tonight and jumping/running/ doing back flips everywhere. He is also being extra cuddly and not wanting me to leave the room.
Its really hard to say goodbye, even if its just for a little while.
