Cking,

that little one is smart-waiting until the hub bub subsides.

Drink some cocoa and take a nap (if you can)

we are still trying to sell the prius. you interested?

bought the bed; should be here in two weeks. bought the table (or, i'm leading on it--and it's not the saarinen knock off that is basically worthless but the guy wants thousands for), and i'm looking at a lounge set but ryan's feeling hesitant. LOL

hawk is *loving* the beach. i've been trying to teach him to swim a bit . . .blowing bubbles and such. but that's about it. i love to swim, so i definitely want to teach him (for safety and fun reasons).

oh, and yesterday we did laundry in the YHA, and i usually close the door. both ryan and i were in there, and hawk was one moment playing with the laundry basket, and then the next, ryan was like "where is hawk?" and i didn't know. He'd opened the door (first time for that), ran down the hall, got on the elevator, and ended up on the ground floor!

the ground floor's front door is wide open and opens onto a street.

thankfully, one of the hostel workers grabbed him and then made an announcement over the intercom. i was screaming down the stairs and running each hall way as quickly as possible, while ryan was waiting for the elevator to head to the ground floor and check the kitchens and front area.

literally, it was like 5 minutes. but of terror!

so, there's no rest now! LOL

Between Sebby and Hawk--what's going on over in that part of the world???

Glad you got to him (relatively) quickly, so sorry for your terror! I am amazed he made it that far, though.

i was amazed he made it that far too! today, he started walking off with another family. i happened to be in the bathroom and ryan was talking to a friend (see? see?)

the bottom line is we need to pay closer attention to him while we are out.

no crises today. great time at the park.

Checking in on Christina. I know of 3 baby girls IRL born today, a single and a set of twins. Plus today is the birthday of 2 women I'm really close to. Seems like it's a good day to be born.

that's awesome! I hope I am able to do this..if not with a wrap at least a MT. I just made another one because I learned you need a 'tall bodied' MT for a newborn high back carry.

Hmmm. I always used a normal MT, and just tied it above the bust instead of around the waist. It seems like a tall body one would give the babe too much room to slip around. Are you supposed to fold it down or something?

well, this was based on the fact that my other mei tai (which was made using this tutorial) was extra short-bodied. By tall bodied I mean Kozy-size - not super tall, but with enough room to fold the bottom straps up under the baby's bottom. The way I understand it, if the top straps are tied snugly around the baby's back they won't be able to slip around.

He's here!

Baby boy King was born at 8:32 pm. Very quick - midwife arrived at 7:45. Not sure how long 'active labor' was. Still working on a name, hopefully we'll decide by the morning. oh, 8 lb, 12 oz.
