Checklist for traveling with baby

Ever since having the nugget, traveling has been ... interesting.  It's become a running joke that we always forget at least one important (and totally obvious) thing.  When I went to her first pediatric visit, after having her at home for one day, I forgot her diaper bag! It hasn't gotten much better since then. 

So I finally sat down one day at wrote down every single thing I could think of that we needed for traveling with her. (I added the stuff I needed for myself for good measure.  Because, to be honest, I pretty much always forget my toothbrush or something, too.) 

I've used this a few times now and found it to be a nicely comprehensive list.  Of course, we won't need all this stuff every single time.  And some of it might seem weird to some people.  (Like, there are guns on the list, because usually when we go to my parent's place in the country, we end up doing target practice. FUN!)  But I thought I'd share the list just in case anyone else out there might find it to be a useful starting place!

Here it is!  Let me know if you have any trouble with the link -- I have never used Dropbox before.
