Christmas in Winston-Salem

Over the Christmas holiday, Jason and I managed to go on our first overnight trip with Emma. We headed to Winston-Salem to spend time with Jason's family. We stayed for 4 days and 3 nights and pretty much packed up the whole house. Traveling with a baby involves a lot more than we were used to. We used to just travel with two dogs. But for Emma we brought diapers, bouncy seat, pack-n-play, baby bathtub, three suitcases, boppy pillow, monitors, bottles, etc. the list could go on. After we packed up the car, we could have all taken a nap. About halfway through the trip (1 hour) we started to smell something horrific. Emma had made a big ole poopie in her pants. So we stopped at a rest area and changed her in the back seat of the car. I know I could have taken her inside the rest area, but it had already started to snow and was well below freezing outside. So in the back seat with Sandy (our dog) observing, I changed a poopie diaper and then fed Emma. After we were all situated and Emma was back asleep, we headed out for the rest of our trip. All in all the trip was not that bad, but I can't imagine making a longer voyage with an infant.
