I thought that it wasn’t good to fly with a baby that young. I was reading because my friend and I had thought about going on vacation with her baby when she was that age, and I read that it wasn’t recommended. We never did talk to her Doctor but decided to post pone the trip until she was old enough. She looks beautiful and that little boy is sure cute.

Boy, that must have been one long flight!! Hope Cate breastfed Ignatius to relieve ear pain from the air pressure. It really works–I know because I did that on a flight from SF to NYC, then on to Copenhagen. Sure wish I could have been in first class for that flight, like Cate & baby most likely were on…

Wow, what a super mum!!! She’s making it look easy. Good for her- makes me think having a second one is not that hard after all!

The look on the lady’s face in the background cracks me up…it’s as if she was sitting next to them on the flight and is ready to be rid of them! Ha ha…

For a split second I thought Cate resembled Kirsten Dunst here. Maybe it’s the sunglasses blocking her upper face…

Don’t any babies wear hats anymore?

My daughter has never left the house without a hat and she’s 7 months old…
