Ha! Eureka!

So, here it is, the last day of the conference... and I've successfully blogged a pathetic ONCE.
I'm not sure if I should do an excessive recap, or just blog about today, or blah blah blah...
Since arriving, I've met a number of really wonderful people. The overall impression I get is that the atendees at the conference are a bunch of incredible and devoted moms. It's funny, leaving the home environment where most people bottlefeed and overdose on strollers and gerber cans -- and then coming here... it's like a mecca for baby slings and "boob juice". Seeing all the attachment parentng is really heartwarming. Considering there are over a thousand children here, it's amazing that there isn't total chaos. There are generally very few crying babies or children that remain upset for more than a matter of minutes or seconds.

I'll have to write later, perhaps when I am home, to tell you about the sessions I went to. The posts that got deleted included all that information, and my baby just won't allow me the luxury right now of typing it for a third time.

Having a grand ol' time...

3rd time is a charm...

Okay, the blogger has eaten my past 2 blogs... so this is a trial run - if you see this, it's successful!

Darn the Luck

Readers,

Chana has written two lovely blog posts in the past two days, and blogger.com has LOST them when she clicked the link to publish. She is SO frustrated, as she has a lot to share! We are working on contacting the site and letting them know how difficult this has been for our neophyte bloggers!

We're here!

We're here!

I flew into Baltimore Thursday afternoon... Of course, my well-behaved child decided to pick that day to perfect her squawking technique :) After waiting about an hour for my flight to board, I became privy to the few public benefits of having a young child - pre-boarding! We picked a window seat, because I was pretty sure that she might be interested in napping. I saw that we were not the only family to be on this particular flight... Lots of kids, most of them crying and upset at being on the plane. MY baby, however, settled down to nurse within the first 5 mins of takeoff, promptly fell asleep, and slept almost the entire flight. yay.... She woke up about 20 mins before landing, and I could tell her ears were hurting from the change in pressure. Soooo, we nursed again :)
We were very discreet, and upon landing, the person in the seat next to me congratulated my daughter (and me) on a successful noiseless flight.

Now we're all checked in at the hotel.. it's really big, and a little confusing. I feel like I'm going round in circles half the time. The good news is, the hotel was very accomodating with our requests - I needed to be given a hotel room on the lower level because I am an observant Jew and do not use electricity on the Sabbath (Shabbat, Saturday). So, we got a room on the first floor. It's really beautiful - the whole hotel is.

Alright, my baby is tugging at me. Time for a nap, I think.

More to come soon!
