I have to say, one of the main reasons we were so adamant about taking this trip was so that my brother and his family could meet Owen. Owen is now 2 years old and my brother is the only one out of all immediate family who had never met Owen. With Owen's GI team pushing a surgery that I am not comfortable with at all, I thought it was important for my brother to meet him before the surgery took place. I know that sounds terrible but I would feel so terrible if, God forbid, something happened to Owen and my brother never got to meet me.
With that said, we had a wonderful visit with family. I think they were all very excited to meet Owen!
