We had only brought one suitcase and the hanging wet bag full of clean diapers. I left the suitcase with Jason and just brought diapers and some of Jaxon's things home with me. So this was my checked baggage, lol.
There was only one flight I could take and get home in time to get the kids, so I ended up being in New Orleans for only 12 hours. Thankfully, my husband made sure I got to visit the place that was the top of my list: Cafe Du Monde. I had been to New Orleans when I was a teenager, traveling with a family to help with their children and babysit for them so they could have some couple time. That was more than 14 years ago but I still remember how amazing the beignets we ate while we were there were. So I really wanted to visit Cafe Du Monde again and I was glad we had time on the way to the airport to stop.
We were very lucky and the flight was not full. So I not only got to bring Jaxon's car seat onboard for him to have a seat, I also had the row to myself, which was very nice when it was time to nurse!

Jaxon was great during the plane ride! He nursed during takeoff and landing and played with me the rest of the time (strapped into his car seat - the pic above was taken before took off). He didn't sleep until we were landing, but I was really proud of how wonderful he did during the flight. He was so good and never cried or anything! Anyway, what started out as a negative experience turned out to be a little fun mommy/baby flight!
