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.
