Great blog

I really enjoy checking in on the babywearing blog- if you are into babywearing, too, check it out! (Click on the title "great blog.")

Note: It seems the above blog has not been updated in a while!! The past posts are good reads, and also check out www.thebabywearer.com for LOTS of babywearing info!

Cute Quiz!

This was from another webgroup I am in (Slightly Crunchy Attachment Parenting in yahoo groups)- a quiz to take to see how "crunchy" you really are... I am "pretty crispy" which sounds about right! (Click on the title "Cute Quiz" to see how you do!)

Ah, nature

We just got back from a trip out to San Diego, CA and visited the zoo while there. It was so fun to see the momma animals with their babies. We were in the monkey area and there was a chimp momma nursing her little one- he would run around and play and then come back to the breast, nurse a little, then run back to play! At Sea World we were given a behind the scenes look at some of the animals there. They keep the momma & baby dolphins out of the public eye while they are nursing so that they have "privacy" ! And, at the Wild Animal Park we saw nursing deer (we took a tour guided train and I was nursing Gray at the same time, too!)

I'm a Mei Tai girl!

Well, I got another baby carrier the other day and think this one is "the one!" I wanted to try this traditional style carrier since I already use the ring slings and a pouch. We're going to San Diego next week and I wanted something that was great for a lot of walking, and this one has two shoulder straps and I have heard that it's very comfy. Well, I love it. Here's the pic right after I got it out of the mailbox (me without makeup and sporting crazy hair, but that's kinda normal!) Before I was done taking photos, Gray was asleep- showing his approval, too! Now I am determined to take a break from buying anymore carriers... altho I have yet to try a wrap! Maybe further down the road!

He's so happy!

With family recently, Gray was so happy and smiley (as usual!) and everyone was commenting on how happy he is, how early he is smiling (earlier than my other boys did) and how he is just the best baby! Then my grandmother gets this scolding look on her face and says "it's because you hold him too much!" .... wha? So would it be better if I didn't hold him often and he was a sad, unhappy baby? I don't really understand! He is a wonderful baby and I love holding him and cherishing his baby-ness... it doesn't last long- believe me I know this!
