My 2 year old had been cranky, moving from tantrum to tantrum with barely a break for a few hours, fighting a nap and generally making me crazy. Within a min. of wrapping her up I had this. Blessed Peace!

Why is babywearing awesome for you?

Yay for babywearing!

I think it's awesome bc:

1. I can get around w/out lugging a huge stroller that my lo doesn't even want to sit in.

2. I have 2 free hands to hold my older boys hands, push carts, browse merchandise, etc., etc.

3. I look so darn cool doin' it!

You ladies are making me long to wear my 2 y.o.! I haven't been able to do it in a while because I'm pregnant and due to have this baby anytime now. Can't wait till I'm back in babywearing action again! My carriers are getting lonely.

because DS loves it, because I can be active with him and unencumbered by a stroller, and because I get so many double takes when I carry him. It's our bonding time and this weekend we'll go for a walk in our first HBC.
