My babyhawk came today! Liam is asleep in it right now, I will have to take pictures later when I don't look like such a mess. It was my Christmas gift from Andrew but I wanted to use it before Christmas and at commissioning next week.
This time of year is really hard for me, especially with the news about Mighty. Almost 5 years ago my dear aunt passed away from cancer, she was like a second mother to me and took care of me when my parents were having trouble before their divorce. I just think about how this is another holiday without her and how she isn't with her two girls, one who is my age and the other who is 10 years younger than me. I miss her so much
Beemama - I hear you on downsizing. I feel like I'm constantly getting rid of things, I can't stand clutter and am very minimalist about what I like in the house. Andrew, on the other hand, is a collector and hoarder of things, and he refuses to part with a lot of it. We need the space for all of his Army and sports junk, but he takes advantage of that and brings even more stuff in.
leanbh - So sorry to hear about dh's friend, he and his family will be in my prayers.
EricaE - That sounds like a great Christmas gift!
KurumiSophia - Have you thought about getting a baby carrier of some kind, like a sling or moby maybe? That will save on you having to carry the stroller and carseat to the bus stop, you can wear babe and that leaves your hands free for everything else
