As I mentioned, Annabel tagged along on my whirlwind trip to visit my friend Maya. It was Annie’s first time out of state and her first time on a plane. And, as I also mentioned, she did amazing on both flights. She made lots of friends,
and didn’t even peep during a mid-air diaper change.
The flights were just bookends to a very fun first trip for Miss Annabel.
if you can’t see the video above, click here.
She’s not the only one who’s exhausted. I need to sleep for a week.
Still, we can’t wait to go back in August and see the rest of our friends!
amazing photos amazing music. Go Annie go !!!
I love it !!! How awesome ! You do realize her sweet 16 video of her life will be like 4 hours long after editing? Spectacular .. Go Annie your a SUPERSTAR !
Annabel is such a cool customer! Just chillin’ in the Big Apple.

Love it! We have lots of pics of our eldest (then aged about 9 months) sleeping in her pushchair in front of famous NY landmarks When she’s older and wants to travel, we’ll pull them out to show how “boring” it all is!

Catherine Lucas says:
Totally funny… Recognize (I think) some of the sights. It’s neat to film her on location, so we can see it is New York allright.
Well done Annabel, you and the big Apple are made for each other

Not only is Annie delicious, but she’s an awesome traveller! I bet your friends loved her!
.-= Lynn from For Love or Funny´s last blog ..Bruno is a girl’s name =-.
Love the video (and the adorably delicious baby!!!).
Okay – I have a pressing question about your stroller. I am going to be popping out my first in a few months and it’s time to start thinking about things other than adorable little outfits. I noticed that your stroller is parent-facing (and I would assume it also turns away). I love that idea! Would you mind sharing the type of stroller and whether you like it? Thanks!!!
It’s an Orbit, and it’s a fantastic stroller. The seat can turn so that the baby faces you, faces forward, or when you are at a restaurant, it can turn to face sideways. I highly recommended it!
Love it! She is a city girl for sure!

Love, love, love the video! She is such a little cutie-pie! Looks like you guys had a great time! : )
What a great video!! Can Annie get any cuter??!! Oh My Gosh!!
I can not deal with the cuteness of these videos!!!! They brighten my day every Friday before i leave for work.
PS – I love how you you got a shot of Annie with the Andy Office Mug. LOL.
Have a great weekend!!

Assertagirl Amy says:
I’d be afraid to take Nate on a plane at this point…he is so busy! Did you have her on your lap for the flight?
.-= Assertagirl Amy´s last blog ..Time to move on. =-.
yep, on my lap for both flights. I had her in a baby carrier thingy…the one I used is a LilleBaby, and it has a harness INSIDE of the carrier, so she was double-strapped in. But I don’t think I could fly with her strapped to me again…she weighs too much!
Once again – you’ve managed to put what seems like ALL OF THE CUTE in the ENTIRE WORLD into one blog post, nay, one video.
I love it! Those are going to be such hilarious videos for her to watch while she’s growing up when you tell her stories of her life before she can remember..and then cringe at as you show her first boyfriend and she yells at you to stop…and then loves again when she realizes how freakin’ cool of parents she has
.-= Erin´s last blog ..Some News =-.
Glad you got a plane with a changing table! The ones that don’t have one are just plain evil in the form of air transportation.
Karen Junge says:
I have been reading you blog for a while now and I love this New Your video. Glad both of you had fun…
Such fun! When the video was 1st frozen, and she was biting down on her top lip, I could NOT believe how much she looked like Maddie!!! WOW!! You can tell their sissys!
Glad you had fuh and I hope your baby girl i feeling better.

Sooooooooooo cute! I can’t imagine having to change a diaper in the plane’s bathroom. I feel claustrophobic just thinking about it.
.-= Deborah´s last blog ..Drawing FAIL =-.
then I won’t tell you that her diaper was poopy! blech.
Love, love, love that video. Annabel you are one adorable little munchkin
Looks like you guys had an awesome trip. I wish I was heading to NYC this August too so I could meet all my fabulous friends in person and snuggle Miss Annie. Stupid brother-in-law and his stupid wedding

Hysterical! I am still debating if I am going to New York in August. I know Blog Her is sold out but I think it would still be fun!
go, go, go! You need to go!
rachel cortest says:
She is SO good-natured and such a doll i love the video and it was just what I needed this morning.
I love your creative videos! Annie is both a very cute baby and a good traveler- how wonderful!
She is so darn adorable!! Love the video!!
.-= Java´s last blog ..Follow Friday 40 and Over!! =-.
That is an awesome video! Annabel is so cute and I love all of the “on location” shots you did of her.
What software do you use for your editing? I’ve been trying to figure out a good program to use. The one that I have doesn’t cut it anymore.
We use iMovie, it’s a Mac program. But before I had a Mac, I used windows movie maker. iMovie is SO. EASY. I mean, MIKE can use it and he barely knows how to turn the computer on (true story). Movie Maker is a little bit harder to learn but it can do all the same things!
Thanks for the info. I have an old version of Windows Movie Maker. I was working on a montage for my daughter’s birthday and it was quite the pain. Kept freezing up and when I burned the DVD to show at the party only part of it was there. Maybe that’s a computer issue rather than a Movie Maker issue. It seems like my Movie Maker always does that though. I should probably look at upgrading. I’ve seriously considered getting a Mac. I might have to do it just for iMovie.
We were in NYC last weekend as well (sans kids for our anniversary) and really enjoyed everything. Wasn’t the weather just fantastic??
.-= Melissa´s last blog ..OH, The Anticipation! =-.
it was! Although I forgot about the humidity in the city so I felt very BLECH after walking 60 blocks! I hope you had fun!
She is too cute…
will you come spend the day with me and teach me how to make cool videos?

when we landed back in LA, the woman behind me said, “I didn’t know you had a baby there!” it was an awesome compliment.
Wow Annie, you are such a good traveler. Looks like you had a great time. I love NYC.
Thats so precious! I bet it was exausting!
I hope you flipped off NBC studio’s for cancelling COCO!!
HA that’s so funny you say that because Maya and I were yelling “TEAM COCO!” when we walked by the Tonight Show display!
You are my HERO! I fully intend to visit the NBC lot when Im in LA next month and give Jay Leno the STINK EYE!!
Hope the Spohr family has a great Memorial weekend, I think about Maddie every single day!
I wish Annie was my bff! Haha she’s so cute and stylish!
i love your video things! They are so cool and entertaining.
Sarah Swimwood says:
Super cute. Good video!
Lindsay from Florida says:
NYC is SUCH an amazing city. But I was 16 before I saw all those sights for the first time.
I was 23 when I went there for the first time! This kiddo better appreciate it some day, hee hee.
Lindsay from Florida says:
Some of the best trips I’ve ever taken (including that first NYC one) have been mother-daughter trips. And they’ve made me love to travel.
I’m sure Annie will feel the exact same way!!
I love that for the really boring stuff she was asleep, but was WIDE AWAKE in toys r us!
.-= Emily´s last blog ..Bloggin’ =-.
You two were less than a block away from me at the Empire State Building! Would have loved to have met you both and gotten a slice. Glad you enjoyed yourselves!
I know, I have so many people there that I wanted to see but I just had noooo time. But in August I’m there for a week! So we’ll have a fun meet up for SURE!
Yaaaaaaaay! Annie will get more love than she’ll be able to handle, and I’d be thrilled to meet you, hon.
Marti from Michigan says:
So cute how she’s forming “ooohhh” with her little mouth. That’s probably what she thought of the Big Apple!
By all means, after August, bring her back for her Sweet 16th birthday! Make sure you have plenty of cash so she can shop!
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and a great Memorial Day.
Fiorello’s! You were totally in my neighborhood. Looks like gorgeous Miss Annie had a wonderful time; love the montage.

You do know you have the cutest baby every right?!!! I just can’t get enough of her. I come here everyday just to see her sweet face. Keep it up!
I love your video’s. What program do you use to make them? They are so cute! I need to start doing cool video’s of my kids, or we will be all bored to death with the footage I have of them now!
I use iMovie for the Mac. It is AMAZINGLY easy. Before that, I made Maddie’s videos on Windows Movie Maker. It’s still an easy program, although it’s not quite as intuitive as iMovie. Hope that helps!!!

Sweet. Thank you for the birth announcement.
She so cute, dude. I can’t even deal with it. I have physical PAIN when I think about how much I want to give her baby hugs. GIRL BABY, WANT.

cutest sweetest little video ever!
I am in love with your daughter. She’s so beautiful.

Awesome Annabel!!!!Oh there is a big, magical world out there for you to explore. And a safe nest with mama and daddy for you to fly home to. Lucky little duck. You are so cute! And I would be remiss Annabel if I forgot to thank you for the wonderful birth announcement. Here’s to your grand adventure!

Did you see that Bethenny from The Real Housewives on New York had a premature daughter? I instantly thought of you!
AWSOME! that video is great! She did so good traveling. I have 18 month old twins, and still havent taken them on a place. I just need to stop being a wimp and take them!
Im SO happy you had fun on the trip!
I seriously can’t get over how cute she is… she is perfect… that smile kills me!
And what a rockstar… no big deal – just went to NYC for the weekend!!
Sounds like she did awesome on the trip! Glad you had fun!
That was adorable. I’ll have to consult Annie on all the best sites before I make my first trip to NYC.
.-= Rachel´s last blog ..Moving is Bittersweet =-.
I love the video! I need to start getting more creative with mine. May I ask what kind of stroller Annabel has? Looks like something that would work well for our 3 mos. old daughter, Greta.
It’s an Orbit. I LOVE IT. It has an infant seat, and then an attachment for an older kid. I used the bigger attachment for travel because it folds down more compact.
I love the name Greta! So cute.
LOVED the video! I’m so bummed I won’t get to see ya’ll in NY in August. Give Annie big hugs from Texas.
.-= AmazingGreis´s last blog ..I’m not a Princess, this ain’t a fairy tale… =-.
Oh lady…if it helps, ignore the choosing yourself part. Recognize that you’re helping Annie too. The better you feel, the happier she’ll be. She loves you, and while breastfeeding is lovely, all she really wants, is a happy mommy :).
And that response went in the wrong post! What did I just do??
Annabel is a cute little city baby! looks like a fun trip!
