It is so, so close to me, but we are going to be out of state on vacation at that time!

Warmly~

I just decided to learn how to wrap and this conference couldn't come at better time. I live just a few blocks away... so, I'll be walking down for Sat. classes!

It is going to be so cool to meet you all.

I can't believe it's less than 2 weeks away.:

I had one point today where my email box was filling up faster than I could respond.... :

Jenrose, Mama to DD1, born 1993, DD2, born 2005, and DS1, Jan. 2012. Babywearing, cosleeping, homebirthing mom with fibromyalgia and hashimotos.  DD2 has a rare chromosome disorder.

I SO wish I could!
It's just a little too far to reasonably drive at 34 weeks, and flying is too expensive

I hope all of you who do go have a blast though!!

I wanted a booth, but it's too expensive. I'm planning on going Saturday.

Are you guys meeting at a certain time or place?

I SO BADLY want to go to this conference!!! I live in Salem, so it's only less than an hour away.....BUT......baby #2 is scheduled to come on August 1st so I don't know that I will be up for a trip up there. So sad! I am hoping that maybe I can at least go and check out the vendors and try on some different carriers.....You all enjoy it for me!

Mommyof2Bs...There will surely be a bazillion midwives and/or doulas there. If you go into labor, you'll be covered. And you'll have a new sling to carry your baby home in!

Kelly, that's the excuse I want to use to register for the Midwifery Today conference in Eugene in March.

Two weeks after I'm due.

Seriously, if it were a week or two earlier (closer to my "due date"), I think I actually would.

Just to let y'all know, I just found out from the college that we will have extra linens packages on hand so that we can accomodate overnight drop-ins better...woo hoo!

And the weather forecast is *PERFECT*...could not ask for better.

Should we try to coordinate somehow?

Mom of a 7 yr old, 4 yr old, and 1 yr old. Wow. How did that happen?

I'm here! Wireless internet access in the dorm room, lol

It's a good time so far, the classes have been very interesting. Exhibiting starts tomorrow, that should be fun. I got to see a lot of the fashion show carriers today, too, including an Amautik!
