Leaving on a jet plane


Since we haven't exactly been in picture-taking mode for the past couple of days, I'll leave you with this image of me trying to figure out the Baby Bjorn at the last minute. Fortunately, it's much easier to learn than the wrap. We have both with us, and we'll just have to hope that she likes one of them!
Our bags are packed, we're more or less organized, and our plane leaves Denver for San Francisco at 10:10 tomorrow morning. The 22nd is a big date for us: it's the date of Mike's birthday, my birthday, Flynn QiuQiu's birthday, and now the date of our departure for China. Something auspicious about that date for our family, I guess! (Oh, it's also my cousin's birthday!)
I am going for one last run to shake of my last-minute packing nerves (I have to admit I'm less than comfortable handling that much cash, that many prescription meds and that many legal documents on an international flight...it does put me on edge a bit!).
This will be my last post on this blog until we return....hope to be posting on the Babyjellybeans blog within the next day or two!

I usually just lurk around here but wanted to wish you all the best for your trip to China!
By the way: PLEASE don't let Flynn sit in the Baby Björn facing front (looking the same direction as you) EVER! I know they say you can, but it is really bad for the hip joints and the spine, plus it doesn't encourage bonding because she won't see you (and be able to snuggle with you) but everybody else instead, wich can be quite overwhelming for such a little one.
Sorry about my English, I am a German midwife, so it isn't my mother tongue...
Love
