Rocket’s First Flight

I took Rocket on her first airplane flight a couple of weeks ago. We set out early on the morning of Tuesday, October 22nd to visit Aunt Colie, cousin Ben, and cousin Alex in upstate NY. She didn’t have her own seat, but I set her in mine when I got up to rummage around in the diaper bag for something and snapped this photo of her looking like such a big girl.

First Flight

She was her normal sweet, smiley, cooing self for the vast majority of that first flight, only fussing a little bit a couple of very brief times. The passengers around us and the flight attendants were very taken with her, of course. I’m sure it would have been a whole different story if she had screamed and cried during the 5-hour flight, but we got lucky and she did great!
