    Oh I'm so glad I asked! SOOOOOOOO cute!!!! What an adorable little munchkin (I love the swaddle escape pic especially, hahah! I know that pose well.) And ohmygosh look at those little tiny toes...baby feet are the BEST.

    Oh yeah PS, when A's miracle blanket was dirty during naptime the other day I discovered that putting pants upside down on her arms behind her back works really well to keep them pinned down at her sides too! And then the blanket over it. No escaping that one...

    Izzy's the shutterbug between the two of us. He's so happy to have such a cute subject at his beck and call 24/7 .

    Brilliant discovery with the pants!

    I had a wonderful visit from a very good friend (the one who married us in Mexico) yesterday. She was on her way from Istanbul to Costa Rica and wound up in Tucson (because THAT makes sense ). She was sooo excited to meet Teagan and I was pretty excited to show her off.

    I have a question to ask you ladies. I asked it over on the Oct BB but I figured I could ask for your advice as well.

    Here's my dilemma. My Grandmother's 80th b-day is at the end of this month. My family is throwing a big party for her in my hometown. I would love love love to go and I think it would be a pretty awesome birthday surprise to bring Teagan to meet her Great Grandma. Problem is the party is over 3000 miles away! I'd be going by myself. DH can't miss class/work and we can't afford the ticket and pet care. My mom offered to buy my ticket for me because she was planning to come out the following weekend and if I go back east she can skip the trip. Oh, and there are NO direct flights. Although, a layover may be a welcome break in what would be a pretty darn long flight.

    So, my question is, am I insane to even consider a solo plane trip with a 1 month old? I'm not concerned about nursing in the airport or on the plane. Folks can bite me if they have a problem with me feeding my baby. I can request a seat next to an empty seat if it's available. How do you change diapers on a plane? If I nurse her when the plane is ascending and descending, her ears should be fine, right? I need to make the decision soon so we can get affordable tickets. WWYD?!?!?!!?

    Yay for a good visit from a friend!
    I posted my experience of our BB but in a nutshell I think you should go for it!

    If you have a carrier you're comfortable with and can pack light for both of you, I'd say it's totally doable. Go show off your new baby!

    I think you should go for it too! My cousin got stationed over in Germany a couple years ago and he and his wife have 3 kids. When number 3 was born, his wife flew back to the states when the baby was just a couple months old by herself with all 3 kids and has since done the flight several times by herself with all 3 kids. I've never talked to her about the flight, but I assume it can't be too traumatic for her if she keeps doing it.

    I can't imagine what part of it would be so bad, maybe I'm wrong as I've never flown with my kids, but I'd almost imagine a newborn would be a heck of a lot easier than a toddler I don't know about you, but I can change my LO's diaper on my lap so I guess that's what I would do on the plane too.

    yeah, I think you should go for it...when they are that little it HAS to be easier than toddler (which I did to/from florida with DH with us, and it wasn't too bad). The only tricky things were going through security. Bring slip on shoes (obviously) and keep the bags to a minimum. DH and I struggled to put all our stuff on the belt, take shoes off/on, etc. and wrangle Nathan. Be aware, though, that they will make you take LO out of a carrier when you go through security...but that is pretty quick. Not sure if they make you take off the actual carrier or not...but baby has to come out, unfortunately.

    Oh my gosh, GO FOR IT. I traveled two weekends in a row with Adair at just before and after she turned 2 months (once with DH, once alone) and it could not have been easier. She didn't even nurse (wouldn't) at takeoff/landing and had no ear trouble. Especially if she will sleep in a carrier and you have a rolling suitcase--then just throw your wallet, phone, and a book in the diaper bag and you're good to go.

    ETA, actually that's not true about security (posted above). You can leave the baby in the carrier and ask to be wanded/patted down instead of removing her. Sometimes that's more annoying than it's worth, but if she's sleeping, good to know it's an option. I did both (taking her out vs. wanding) and both ways took about an extra five minutes. Just pick your preferred hassle
