11 weeks to go! 43

February 13, 2011

Where has the time gone?  Have the last few months flown by for you as they have for me?  I can’t believe that in just 11 weeks – give or take a few days! – I will have on of these for myself!  A brand new, squishy baby, to have and to hold, to comfort and to gaze upon, to amaze and be amazed by, to wallow in the joy, and triumph in every success!  Now I’m getting sappy, but truly, I couldn’t be more excited!

Family portrait 42

February 12, 2011

Since the birth of my first baby, all family portraits at my house seem to feature my favorite-at-the-time baby carrier!  Whether it’s because I babywear all day long – I do! – or because I feel like my carriers are part of the family – absolutely! – or because a family photograph wouldn’t even be happening without the help of my trusty rusty carrier – probably not!  most of the pictures of me have baby carriers in them!  At first, it was my home made ring slings, thanks, Mom!  At around Baby #4, I settled into my happy Soft Structured Carrier routine, and my Becos became an integral element of our photos!  When Baby #5 was just a little guy, we jet setted off on our whirlwind tour of New Zealand and Australia taking only, gasp!, 4 carriers so the same ones were pictured frequently!  Branching back out again for Baby #6, I venture to guess that more BabyHawks, O&As, and Wrapstars will be gracing the pages of my photo albums since my stash has grown incredibly since we returned home!

PS!  Auckland, New Zealand is WINDY!!!  Can you tell?

Moms can do anything! 40

February 10, 2011

Moms not only CAN do anything, they have to do anything with baby on their back!  Just because you have a baby now doesn’t mean that you get to stop doing the laundry, cooking, cleaning, or any of the other wifely duties you command!  Strap baby on your back in an uber comfortable carrier to keep your hands free and get back to work!

Ever seen something so beautiful it took your breath away?  Stopped you in your tracks?  Made you double look?

The Beco 4th Generation was the first Soft Structured Carrier I had ever seen other than the Ergo, and it amazed me!!!  The simple straps and inadvertent buckles didn’t detract from the beauty of the carier one bit, and the Echino fabric used on the Cocoa Butterfly 4th Generation was, in a word, PERFECT!

Don’t tell my husband, but I am now the proud owner of 2 of these beauties; that’s how these babywearing addictions go!

The thought of wearing a newborn again makes me feel all fluttery!  I have been looking at waaaay too many squishy pix recently, and am just so excited for my little newbie to arrive!

8 day Fiona thoroughly enjoyed her outing in her GORGEOUS Grace Beco Butterfly, and I’m so happy that Laurel shared this sweet picture with us!

Traveling with a baby is never easier than with the help of a wonderful Baby Carrier! In this case, Jillian and her sweet family sight saw (sight seed?) around San Francisco with the assistance of their custom Sky Temple Beco Butterfly!
