Cross Country Move pt. II | Packing for the Airplane

ALL THINGS TRAVEL

This is part 2 of packing and moving cross country with two children. Today I’m sharing how I’m preparing for the airport with my two kids.

ITEMS TO BE CHECKED:

  • One large suitcase less than 50lbs
  • Two car seats

CARRY ON ITEMS:

  • Diaper bag with the following: diapers, wipes, sanitizing wipes, infant toys, snacks, non-spill cups, iPad, travel documents, wallet, chargers, AirPods, change of baby clothes, baby blankets
  • 2x Koala Kloud Airplane Footrest, Inflatable Pillow for Kids Travel. I’m clipping these onto the diaper bag
  • Toddler backpack with the following: no mess coloring book and markers, 3 favorite non-noisy toys, kindle, headphones

Now you’re probably thinking ‘what about a stroller?’ well I’m actually bringing a wagon! We have this wagon from Costco and as long as the wagon folds it can be checked at the gate before boarding the plane. This is going to make traveling (hopefully) 10x easier with both kids.

Baby Announcement!

ALL THINGS BABY

Baby #2 finally arrived via a scheduled inducement. In all honesty, I couldn’t take being pregnant anymore. My doctor told me that it was safe and healthy for me to be induced at 39 weeks. So I wasted no time and scheduled the inducement at 39+1.

Please no judgement! Though I was having a safe and healthy pregnancy, I was having so much pelvic pain that I just couldn’t stand the thought of staying pregnant while I waited for my little man to come out naturally.

Since this is my second child

A little while back I shared how I edited a sunflower, butterfly design in my Silhouette Studio software. I wanted to share the finished product.
