When I told Paul that I was going to write this post, he laughed at me and said, “You’re such a Southerner.”
The truth is, I haven’t been anywhere colder than Atlanta since Christmas 2004. And I think I’ve forgotten how cold up north can get.
I don’t know why we decided to visit New England in January except that we were thinking it would give Paul’s parents a chance to have Christmas with Savannah before it got too far away from the actual holiday. Now that we’ve bought the tickets, I’m panicking, wondering if we should have waited until April or something! Oh well.
I’m really nervous about flying with Savannah. Paul wasn’t able to get a direct flight, so I will have four take-offs and landings to deal with. I have been told to nurse Savannah during those – I’m just praying that I don’t throw up myself as I usually want to do! So yeah, I’m a little scared.
The other thing I’m worried about is being able to keep Savannah warm while we’re up there in the bitter cold. For those who live in New England, how do you keep 4 month olds warm in the winter? The warmest thing she owns is a bear outfit. We’re going to borrow some sort of snow suit. What other things should we get for her before coming? I don’t want to go too crazy and get her all these clothes that are too warm for Atlanta, but at the same time I don’t want her to be cold while we’re up there. Any ideas would be most welcome! :-)
