looks like nothing happening today :( new washer and dryer are finally in so 1 1/2 weeks worth of laundry to do and she likes to run around the house and help (she's actually good at laundry!) but tom will be another big outing, need to return some of the stuff we bought yest and the stroller isn't needed for the size of bag this time!
marcia glad you are enjoying the ring sling! always love the power of a momma's will! there's not much we can't do one handed when needed!
holly glad you got to enjoy your date/dinner!
Thought I'd post a pic of Olivia in the O&A from last Friday at the zoo. No BWing today - we were having a blast in the yard this afternoon so never went for a walk and dinner was simple today, pizza.
Hopefully some of these videos will be useful for you. I really like the Sakura Bloom videos!
Please ignore the lady in the beginning. It's always safe to carry this way, even with newborns, as long as the baby is properly supported from knee to knee and the wrap is tight enough. Moby is always a bit slow. They were recommending back carries in them (which is VERY dangerous with any stretchy wrap) up until 18 months or so ago. :roll:
(If y'all can't tell I finally have INTERNET! :yahoo:)
Okay, LOTS of babywearing today. This kid probably spent more time in a carrier than out of it today. I wrapped him probably 4 different times. The first time was in the double hammock and he stayed up there for almost 2 hours before I got tired and handed him over to DH to wear him. DH wore him probably 3 times throughout the whole day. The joys of finally getting all of our household goods arrive to our new house!

(yep, my husband wore him while in uniform! :lol:)
Love the uniform pic, haha :D
Addy's been living in the Ergo the past few days as we have been dragging her all over Southern Arizona with our friends who were visiting. All through the antique stores and art galleries of Bisbee, on a long hike through the national park...girl's been riding everywhere. Even the power of BW wasn't enough for her to make it through a cave tour (she actually loved the cave, but HATED having to wait around while the guide talked...I ended up finding our way out and we played outside while we waited for everybody) but then we went on a tram ride up Sabino Canyon and she was so far overdue for her nap that she fell asleep like she'd been shot. I had her in a front carry so I could sit down on the tram, and she took her whole hour plus nap in there. We stopped at a waterfall, and I put my feet in the river and lay down on a little sandy beach area with her sleeping on my belly while everyone else swam. It was DELIGHTFUL. I got a couple of impressed comments from old ladies :) I'm sure I'll have a bunch of pics to post, but I'll have to wait for my friends to upload them.
Wow, that's great that she napped and everything! WTG babywearing! :D
Wore DS in a ruck tied in front at lows (always something missing in every house :roll:) and then wore him in a ruck tied tibetan as I picked up organizational stuff at Target.
Went for a stroller walk to Shopko today and ended up wearing DD in the RS while pushing the stroller around the store and back home. Felt a little silly pushing an empty stroller but so glad I had my RS in the diaper bag!
WOOHOO! got dh to wear her today! he likes that she's on his back now, going to try a ruck carry with him next time, he likes her right up high like a backpack! so proud of him! as for me, wore her to and from playgroup, inside my jacket i don't need to fuss with shoes/boots and jacket to go play inside! then wore her home from papa's (dh wore her there!) we're back to the moby style wrap on the back until i can figure out something else that works for us, for now she likes the leg support knee to knee and i like the weight on my chest instead of shoulders.
mel she looks enthralled with that camel! tfs pic!
jackie yay for internet! lol! aw what a cutie, tfs pics, the double hammock looks so comfortable on you! jade still complains about the way it is on her legs and it's leaving light red marks, then again she is 30lbs now (dh weighed her today!) what is your dh using? i love the uniform pic too! glad your stuff arrived!! i love the first shop in a new place!
leigh that sounds like a great day! teehee i would hate to try anything other than bw'ing in an antique store or art gallery!
becky i always have the moby in the diaper bag even when she wasn't wanting it for months, you never know when you'll need the stroller for carrying stuff home, and being able to take them out is soo handy! lol i know the feeling of the empty stroller though!
I had to rethread my RS and when I put in on to fcheck all was well DS wanted up so I wore him downstairs to get the nappies out of the machine.
Glad i rethreaded though it feels more secure and sits better
