We made it. Max dealt better with the long flights than any of us did. He fussed a couple of times, but was wonderful and charmed the pants off of the flight attendants. We had a wonderful reception at the airport - greeted by Aunt Dawn, Aunt Moo Moo, Maddie, Myles, Aunt Missy, Uncle Paul, Peter, Olivia and Auri.
We finally heard him cry on the way home - he finally pooped (one statement that only mom's are proud of)! I'm too exhausted to write anything else.
