Flying on an airplane

with 2 comments

We just got back from a trip to Atlanta for Mrs Bean’s youngest sister’s bat mitzvah, and Kai’s naming ceremony.  Kai did really well on the plane – she was complimented by a number of passengers.  On the way there, Mrs Bean nursed her on the way up, and she slept the whole trip.  When we landed, she woke up, looked around and became very perturbed (where am I???) and let a big wail.  On the flight home, she was really hungry, so Mrs Bean let her start nursing when we were on the runway – a bit too early, since we were 6th in the take-off queue.  We were worried that her ears would hurt on the way up if she wasn’t nursing, but she seemed to do alright, taking little sips as needed.

Kai got to see her grandparents and aunts and uncles again, as well as great-aunts and great-uncles, and a great-great aunt, and a whole bunch of cousins and family friends.  Mrs Bean kept Kai in a wrap most of the time at the synagogue, partly to keep too many people from touching her, and partly to keep Kai calm (or asleep).

Her pants fit so much better with one thin diaper

For the trip, we opted to use disposable diapers (seventh generation) instead of lugging cloth diapers with us.  The first time I put one on, I was amazed at how svelte Kai was – her pants fit easily and she could bend her legs closer towards her chest.  Unfortunately, her poop is more likely to shoot up her back in the disposable diapers.  It’s also alot harder for us (and her) to tell when the diaper needs changing, so we ended up (trying to) changing her every 2 hours.

Kai has also started to get the hang of inching forward when we put her on her tummy.  She hates tummy time, but I make her do it anyway.  heh heh.  She has also started to grasp at things, mostly with her right hand.  I can only imagine what’ll happen when she starts to get good at grabbing…she’s quite the curious girl!
