We left for Disneyland when Isaac was just 7 weeks old.
I was SO nervous to go on vacation with a newborn and I debated and debated whether or not to stay home while Jeff took the older kids.
I decided to go but after last year's Disney incident (you can read about that here) I wasn't too sure about things. I sat on a park bench the entire first day while everyone else rode the rides.
I had zero expectations for this trip. A fussy newborn who doesn't like to sleep in new places can sure ruin a vacation.
Isaac turned out to be a traveling rockstar!
He slept the entire drive. We only had to stop about every 3 hours so I could feed him and change his diaper.
He slept great at night (4-5 hour stretch, eat, 2-3 more hours).
We discovered he LOVES his stroller and he happily napped in the stroller all day long. I got over my anxiety after the first day and rode some rides with my older kids.
Another reason I love Disney:
They have a baby station in each park where I could go every 2-3 hours and quietly feed Isaac. They even provide rocking chairs! How amazing is that?! I would go in there, sit and rock, put my feet up, close my eyes, and just relax while I fed Isaac. It was heaven!
A few more of my favorite photos from the trip.
I can't tell you how many people tell me they think Jake looks like Justin Bieber.
Haha! What do you think?
I'll tell you what Jake thinks. He hates it.

This was fake vomiting.
Isaac's first character encounter. He slept right through it.
Party of Seven (!!!) for Mickey's fun wheel.
One of Isaac's first and only rides. It's a long ride and as soon as we got on....
...he blew out his diaper.
This took a good hour to clean up and I just threw the clothes away. (His first time wearing them, btw)

Disneyland 2013 was a smashing success!!
Can't wait to experience it several more times through the eyes of my sweet little Isaac as he grows up.
