Wore DD yesterday in the morning to go to the grocery store, and in ther afternoon to go shopping for new washer/dyer set (so two different stores). Found the washer/dryer we wanted and kept DD happy!

My Ovulation Chart
Yay for keeping these babies happy!
I wore Aiden out shopping. We stopped in Pet Smart to show him all the critters there.
Erin and I had a Very Special Episode, double BW day today...I'm too tired to post the photos right now, but I will tomorrow. We went to the Botanical Gardens and saw the Butterfly Magic exhibit, Ergos in full force. The girls were a lot more interested in the fish than the butterflies, funny munchkins. But a good time was had by all!
(Erin, as you guys walked away across the parking lot, Addy started waving madly and saying "Bye-bye! Bye-bye! Tea Tea? Tea Tea? More! MORE! Tea Tea? MORE! ...Bye-bye!" Teagan actually looked back and smiled. It was pretty awesomely adorable.)
That's great! I can't wait to see a picture!!!
(And yes, petsmart is a great free "zoo" especially on the days when they have puppies there. )
Wore Addy at the (actual) zoo this morning...it was WAY better than the stroller, since she can't see most of the animals from the stroller so it's a constant in/out...she was content to be worn and walk for much longer periods this way, and I was hands free the whole time. Yay! I definitely need to keep working on how to carry all my stuff, though.....it needs a bigger pocket!
Leigh, I got the Ju Ju Be Quick last week and it's working out great for us. I can fit a pocket cloth diaper (or two flats!), my full wallet, my keys, my phone, small thing of wipes, and 2 reusable envirosax in there! I clip it to the carrier and we're good to go. I honestly not sure if I'll carry my purse anymore since while I can't carry everything in the Be Quick I can carry enough. Everything else I used to carry in a purse I threw in a bag in the car so I can get to it if need be (extra wipes, diapers, clothes, etc). It's rare when I really need to keep a bunch of stuff ON me. Most places I can run to the car if emergency strikes.
Wendy, if I went "swimming" more often I'd totally want a water sling!
We don't go often, and it's not something I would have bought myself but I won it. It was a life saver when we moved house when Ronin was 3 months old to a house with no bath tub. He showered with me in the sling for months.
Our Butterfly Magic adventure reminded me of another reason I love the Ergo. Up-downs are quite frequent with a toddler, as we've discussed. The Ergo not only handles up-downs like a champ but it also doesn't look ridiculous when baby is down. Try looking cool in a Moby without a baby. I dare you.
Great picture! Love it!!!
Erin, try remaining COOL period in a Moby. Any coolness factor (which I'm not sure how much there is of that) would be lost quickly due to the sweat.
That's why I want a shorty wrap if I keep with wrapping. Easier for up-downs and it's easy to pack away or tie like a rebozo and wear like a ring sling.
