emi had her first ride in an airplane this week as we flew to san antonio for a week with julie’s extended family. she did great (as expected) and didn’t seem to be bothered by her ears at all. the passengers around us seemed to have a good time playing with peek-a-boo with her. everyone from the airline was very nice to her and we learned another important baby tip: airlines give you a free extra seat if you bring a kid with you! we could have paid for an extra seat when we bought our tickets but decided to just hold her in our laps instead. but the folks at the seattle and dallas gates made sure that we had an empty seat in our row just for emi. very nice. more pix as the trip progresses here.
