Mommy Melee asks Do airlines let you wear your baby onto the plane and in your seat? What was the biggest challenge traveling with Ivy?
We flew American Airlines and they did let me wear Ivy onto the plane and in my seat. I was even able to go through security while wearing her but it was probably because my sling didn't have any metal parts. I kept her in the mei tai most of the time until she needed to get out and move around. Then I'd put her right back in and this helped so much getting through the airplane & airport.
I am very thankful to have my awesome flymates with me- Sarah, Beth, & Arianne. I am not sure I'd ever want to fly alone with a baby. My biggest challenge was probably just making it through the airport with all our stuff- and there was lots of extra stuff because I was not only packing for ME but also a baby and had a car seat/stroller and a ton of extra changes of clothes that still wasn't enough and toys and, yeah.
Heather of the EO asked Is Ivy feeling better? Did the awful cough leave your home? Who is your very most favorite blogger from the conference?
I think Ivy is feeling better but the awful cough has not completely left our house yet. I probably have it the worst.
And I know Heather was kidding about that last question but I will say that there were certain people I was really looking forward to meeting for the first time and I did, certain people that I was looking forward to visiting with again and I did, and then there were some nice surprises- probably my favorite thing was meeting people that I hadn't really known before online or in person.
Shannon introduced me to her friend Amber from The Run-A-Muck and we hit it off right away. I had just recently learned about her blog and there was something about her that just made me fall in love instantly. I was up late in the night with Ivy and decided to read through her blog. Trust me- it's one you will want to read all the posts in one sitting. She's so amazingly beautiful from the inside out.
Amber, Ivy, & Me
It wasn't until the next night after we met that I realized that... wait for it... Amber is THE Mom that the Mother Letter Project was for!!
