been a bit but wow what chaos! not much wearing lately, the weather has either been so gross we're inside or so nice that she's bouncing and needs the walk! lol! today will be bringing it for sure though, it's her birthday and we're going to west ed waterpark, considering she woke up at 6:30am i'm thinking it would be silly not to have it handy for a nap at least!
sounds like everyone has been having fun! some great scores and good outings (and some not so great! lol!) i currently ride around on the most roomy vehicle i could get… the bus! lol! haha have a great one ladies!
Ha, if the bus near my house ran more than every 1/2 hour and didn't take such a ridiculously winding route that would make going nearly anywhere other than downtown (which I hardly ever need to go to) take one million times longer than necessary, I would totally take the bus more! It's so much easier to walk out the door with DD in the Ergo and hop on the bus than deal with car seats and driving. We rode it to the rodeo in February since we weren't in a hurry and parking there is a nightmare--and it was delightful!
No BW for us the past few days...no need.
Happy Birthday, Jade!
Wow! Can't believe Jade is 2 already! I still very clearly remember you announcing your pregnancy. Hope she has a fun day.
I wore DS at the park today at a cloth diaper meeting. He played some and was worn on my back some in my woven wrap.
I think I saw one bus here once? It can't go on base, so wouldn't do me much good cause I'd have to walk a good ways to get to it's route. I can't recall ever seeing bus stop signs honestly here so I'm not sure how useful it is. I've never lived in an area where the bus route is actually close enough to me to take. In TX it was a 20 minute drive to get to the closet bus stop that just took you up and down the main drag of the city. I remember being surprised that there was a bus there period, so I looked it up. lol
Oh my aching calves. We took a family hike yesterday after the Easter Bunny extravaganza. I wore T in the Kelty frame pack. We hadn't taken this trail before so we weren't aware of how difficult the terrain would be. The way out was mostly down hill and covered in slippery rocks, which is incredibly difficult being top heavy with a toddler who is making it her mission to try and throw you off balance by leaning as far as she can to either side. I was exhausted about an hour in. DH offered to wear her back but he's got a bad back that just gets worse the longer he's wearing her so he put her up and took off practically running up the hill. Chasing him up after the work out I got coming down was ... not fun. Anyway, it was a lovely hike aside from the physical exhaustion and T had a great time. The pack did its duty. We're just out of shape
Happy Birthday Jade!
yeah, Erin - no way I'm doing that kind of hike with a child on my back! I went to the gym Saturday and lifted weights for the first time since 2008 - can you say sore - my legs are still killing me! No way I could hike, I'm so out of shape!
No BWing since Friday. Yesterday was so busy with family here and the meal and such and today was an easy dinner and daycare day. My legs hurt so much I'm not sure if we'll do much tomorrow either...we'll see!

My Ovulation Chart
Erin pretty sure at this point I wouldn't last the hour!
So I made sure to bring my Ergo out and about today because I knew I needed to go to Target and Meijer (grocery store)...and Beni was TOTALLY into the cart today! Lately, she's been SO anti-cart...totally silly. I only ended up wearing her for the check-out at the second store and out to the car. But, hey, even those 15 minutes were made easier by wearing!
Happy birthday to Jade! I'm planning Beni's second birthday party now too...crazy!
As for me... I was trying to go on daily walks, but I guess it seems we've just been really busy... or I have been talking Beni to the park instead. But when I walk, I use the stroller, and I have constant contractions (just BH, but still). There would be no hiking for me right now!
Mara & Joel, 2009
yep bus SUCKS but its cheaper than a car so we deal! ITA easier though!
hope the meet was good! LOL when everyone drives they dont see a need i guess!
glad you had a great hike erin! and i wouldn't even want to try uneven terrain at this point i'm soo used to flat city walks! great job!
sometimes it's those little wears that makes or breaks the day!! good luck with party planning, today was chaos but good! lol!
wave pool was a blast! jade lasted till 7pm when we did early bedtime, 15 min crash in the ergo, then 10min crash in the car was it for nap (usually 1-3 hours still) but she was soo good! EVERYONE at the pool thought it was genius for wearing her in the wave pool (she had fallen asleep and i wanted to stand in the pool!) and for wearing her up the stairs (many stairs) to the inner tube rides!!! ergo buckles into a thick belt so it was great to wear her up, belt it and go!!
for your viewing bw'ing pleasure! the washable ergo!!
and thanks for the bday wishes jade loves seeing all your kids in the siggy's!!
Sounds like a good day Mara and happy birthday to Jade. Ronin loves seeing kids in siggies as well and yells bubba at the screen and tries to touch them.
Guess whose getting and SSC this week, yup, me. I am finally shelling out the cash for a Boba and because my Mum can pick it up and is coming past here on the weekend I get it by the end of the week. So excited, I can use it uptown rather than the pram and we have ANZAC day coming up so I can wear him for the march.
