Up and Away

Today was Veronika’s first airplane ride!

Okay, maybe not really, but with stronger neck and head muscles, it was time to take her for a classic baby airplane ride.

Start sitting up, with your baby’s tummy on your shins. Gently lean back, holding baby securely, then lift your knees up in the air.

Whee, we’re flying! As baby gets older, there are fun ways to vary this. I used to joke to Travis that his take-off had been delayed (we live near LaGuardia after all!), earning huge giggles. You can also do fun landings, sound effects, silly turbulence, and more.

Thanks to big brother Travis for the pics!
