check out inmotion entertainment. they rent dvd players at airports. each day's rental includes a free dvd. much easier than bringing your own player (if you have one) and it was a special treat for our dd who doesn't get to watch tv at home. also, we found that having dd in her carseat for the flight was really good. she's used to relaxing, falling sleep, et al. in there and didn't get really anxious to get out and run wild around the plane (which we couldn't do...
my dd's all broke through the gums at the same time. i wasn't even thinking about teething until one night when we were brushing her teeth and i noticed they had arrived! definitely explains her irritability (that and being almost 2.5!) and unwillingness to eat anything significant. now that they're all through her appetite is back, attitude is still "eh" good luck! this too shall pass!!
can i just say i'm exhausted?? ds is up 3 times a night to bf, never sleeping more than a 3 hr stretch. augh. anybody else bfing that much at night? he doesn't sleep more than an hr total during the day, and always has huge bags under his eyes. i feel so bad for the little guy, but not sure what to do. dd was an amazing eater and sleeper, so this is new territory for us. just started ds on solids and he is LUNGING at the spoon. the kid's nuts about rice cereal. i still...

i've been lurking for a while, but am losing too much sleep to not post now! ds was sleeping so well ... and now wakes up every 2-3 hours to eat. i think his sleep is disturbed by us (dh snores LOUD - augh!) and would love to move him in with big sis. she's an extremely light sleeper though (will wake up in the middle of the night, sit up and talk, and never go back to sleep). any suggestions? i
