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?

Pay attention, friends, because there will be a test later!!!!  See this GORGEOUS Girasol wrap???  I bought it for Baby #4 but ended up hiding it away in my stash because as a busy mom to many little ones, I never had the time to wrap it properly!  As you know, time is limited as you watch your toddler sprint away naked down the sidewalk, and you need something QUICK to throw on!  So, long story short, there it sat, unloved but very much appreciated until the day that Erin offered to convert it into one of her amazing Wrapstar Mei Tais!!!  It’s not done yet, but when I show you pictures, think back to this blog post and remember how long my ER waited for its day in the sun!
