We are on our way to Vermont to spend a weekend with my family, and I printed out our boarding passes earlier today, and the web page asked me if I wanted to change my seat assignment.
There were two choices that looked better, though one pair of seats was all the way in the front, which sometimes means there isn't any leg room.
While searching for our plane, an Embraer 145 Regional Jet, I came across seatguru.com that shows the plane, and comments on different seats.
As you can see the seats in row 3 are marked as "be aware", but the comment listed is that the seats are a little narrower due to having the food tray built into the seat, but that there is more leg room than an average seat.
So, I picked those seats -- we will see how it works. I hadn't realized how small a plane we are traveling on. We don't have any stops, but Heather does worse on the smaller planes.

We are here safely, with not much to report.
Jonathan got smiles from all the people in the airport, the one check-in lady was squeezing Jonathan's arms, and didn't notice the passengers "deplaning", and thus didn't open the door for them.
Heather was right in her guess that the "lots of leg room" meant "lots of knee room", but that was nice, because then there was a lot of room for Jonathan to sit backwards on our laps, and crawl around, etc.

Thanks for letting us know of your safe arrival. Have a great time. Stay warm -- I don't know where you are in Vermont, but in Montpelior today's high is supposed to be around five below zero. By Sunday it may get up to five above.... I guess Jonathan will be wearing slightly more than his onesie and shoes today.

18 below zero this morning in Montpelier! Wherever you are can't be much warmer.
