Our First Class Baby

The week before last, I had to go to Atlanta for business. I took Cooper with me, so I could keep nursing him … and we thought it would be easier if each of us (me and Mike) each only had one kiddo to care for on our own. Cooper is a super easier traveler at this point. He sleeps and he eats and he sleeps some more.

Since I travel so much I get upgraded to first class on pretty much every flight I have. This trip was no different. So, at 3 months old, Cooper has already flown first class. From Tucson to Atlanta, I held him in my lap, since he didn’t have a ticket … BUT from Atlanta to Tucson, they offered to move people around in first class, brought me Cooper’s car seat (which I had checked) and he got his own seat in the first class cabin. Talk about one cool baby.

I heard a number of people grumbling about their crappy seats in coach and how the couldn’t believe a baby was up in first class. Me too … I couldn’t believe it. But I didn’t complain! It was pretty awesome. Cooper slept nearly the whole time and I only took him out of his seat for a quick diaper change (that’s when I snapped the picture of him sitting in my seat).

Did I mention that we also got the bulkhead seats, so I had even more leg room than most of the first class folks. Enough that I was able to spread Cooper out on the floor, change his diaper and let him stretch a bit. Seriously, this is the only way to fly with a little baby!
