Packing Is The Hardest Part

I can't believe that the trip we planned five months ago is finally here.

We are flying to Sydney tonight and on Sunday I get to see my old friend, Sophie again! I am so excited I could pee in my pants!! :)

I feel like I have been organizing, making piles and lists, prepping and stressing for weeks. With less than 10 hours until our flight, we are as ready as we will ever be! I think I have packed everything, but the kitchen sink.

By the way, 80% of the contents in the luggage in the picture is your stuff, which means undoubtedly I will not have enough to wear. Guess that means that mommy will get to go shopping!?!

This was by far the hardest trip to pack for despite Sophie's suggestions. Apparently the weather could be very temperamental this time of year in New Caledonia, and while she has most everything that we'll need while we are visiting her, 15 hours is a very L O N G time (think: books, food, formula, snacks, blankets, diapers, toys, extra clothes, etc. etc.) to be on an airplane with a toddler. Not to mention, we have several days in Sydney on each end of our trip. I'm looking forward to being on the plane and on our way! I'm ready for a new adventure.

I am going to take this opportunity to unplug and disconnect from my computer for a while, even though I just went public with my blog to another group of friends (you know who you are), but don't worry, I'll be back.

The best is yet to be.

Day 57/100

Dear Lucas,
I hadn't read this one before today!!! I'm laughing a little, because your Mommy did find some space in her suitcase to bring back some stuff from here!!! But that was an excellent excuse to go shopping for clothes. Maybe she got some time to do so in Sydney.
I won't write anything about your trip here so that Mom has the exclusivity, but I just wanted to tell you that I LOVED EVERY SINGLE MOMENT I spent with your Mommy and that I HAVE TOTALLY FALLEN IN LOVE WITH YOU!!! I also wanted to tell you that I am in BIG TROUBLE now because, after meeting you, my daughters want a little brother!!! I don't know if you managed to change Luc's mind about baby n°3, or if I'm ready to have a third one (how could I be sure I'd have a boy anyway???). Emma and Noémi absolutely ADORE you and I know they were OVER THE MOON to be able to take care of you. Pictures don't lie!!!
I miss you and your Mom very much already. It was lovely having you over and catching up with your Mom. She's really MY BEST FRIEND! She always manages to make me laugh, and I like the look she has in her eyes.
I hope your trip back to SD goes well, and that you'll be a good Baba with your Mommy and Daddy. You are perfectly able to do that. You just need to change activities every five minutes, but you'll get to learn that one cannot do that on an aircraft. You'll get that soon!
Tell Mom to put Skype on her computer so that we get to see and talk to each other often!
Lots and lots of love and huge hugs,
Sophie xoxox
