at the young age of 2.5, madeline is a seasoned traveller. she has already flown back and forth to the united states five times (let's see...seattle at 8 months, my parents in missouri at 10 months, my grandmother in iowa at 11 months, cape cod/boston and family in philadelphia at 19 months, back to missouri at 2 years, back to missouri again at 26 months). she has also flown to madrid at 6 months, copenhagen at 16 months, milan at 26 months, and egypt at 27 months. i think there may be other trips that i'm forgetting. isn't that scary?
