The Babies of BlogHer

July 31st, 2009

Much has been written about BlogHer. How over-the-top everything was.  The big sponsors. The huge bags of swag. The blow-out parties. The larger-than-life amazing, inspirational speakers. The networking.  It’s true – all of that was amazing.

But what really blew me away was something much smaller.


The babies. The babies of BlogHer.

They were everywhere you looked.

I’m old enough to have  graduated from college at a time when I thought I needed man-tailored suits, a leather briefcase, and  short hair to make it in the Big Apple.  My first byline was the androgenous “L.A. Miller,” lest I appeared like a “Southern Belle” for using my full name – Lynn Anne Miller.

I remember being one of the few women in the room at most of the 300 or so conferences I attended during my years in corporate marketing.

I’ve never, ever been to a conference with babies.

It was amazing.

Amazing to see women free to pursue their own interests, all while caring for their babies.


So now you know who I am. I was that woman running all over the place taking pictures of the babies of BlogHer. I wish I had captured them all. But here are eight of the wonderful babies of BlogHer, some pictured alongside their smiling mothers.

If you recognize the babies (or their mothers) please leave a comment so I can add a caption to each picture. (Or similarly, if you would like a picture to be removed, just let me know!)








This last picture is of my Big Boys and their Dad at the airport, soon after my return from Blogher. After looking at all those little babies, it  made me realize that my boys truly are not babies any more. They’re growing up much too fast.

    Great pics! I loved that there were tons of babies at BlogHer and sad my boys are growing up too fast (not sad enough to have any more of my own babies though, lol!)

    I’m so glad you liked the pics! I was amazed by the energy of those women. When my babes were that small, I was lying in bed!

    Great post, probably my favorite BlogHer post yet. This was my first BlogHer and I loved seeing all the babies there. The only downside (for me) was that it made me miss my two more (and they aren’t even babies anymore).

    of the shots. Thanks. :)

    Amy, thanks for your sweet note!

    Kristen, Actually, I’m not sure I’ve got it right….I had some of the babies and moms identified by blog name, so when you responded as Kristen, that threw me. Can you help me out with which shot is of your baby and which blog you run? Thanks! — Lynn

    I’m now 19 and experiencing being a dad. I must say although it feels good it’s still hard. I knew it wouldn’t be easy but to be honest, the hard part is having to balance time. My daughter is great and makes managing her never dreadful. -Teen dad

    Hi Teen Dad, I looked at your blog tonight and was really impressed with what you are doing. You’re right…balancing time is one of the hardest things. Best wishes to you and your girlfriend and daugher. (And I love the name of your blog). Hope we can help you to incorporate some more “green” into your family’s life. — Lynn
