I got lots of comments on my last entry about being nervous about flying with an 18 month old. It turns out with Sabrina, airplane travel equals sleep. Our trip was a four hour flight from Phoenix to Baltimore, then an hour from there to Long Island, and the same on the return. She was asleep before we took off and stayed there for the first three hours of the trip. An Elmo video and snacks took care of hour four. She got the crazies out in a quiet part of the Baltimore airport and was back to sleep as we taxied to the runway, not waking until we landed. She repeated this when we went back to Baltimore on Monday. For all our worry about popping ears during takeoff, she slept through the first three of them.
Flying from Baltimore to Phoenix, she was up for three hours. (Eh, you can't win 'em all!) She slept through the fourth hour, deplaning, baggage claim, the bus ride to the car, and didn't wake up until getting strapped in the car seat. It works out to sleeping for just over 60% of the time. Not too shabby!
Here are some pictures from the wedding and baptism we went to, as well as the big reveal of the top secret dress. Enjoy!
