While it's rare for me to wear Gray anymore, I still find the occasional occasion that merits it necessary. Out shopping downtown the other day, even an itty bitty stroller wouldn't work in & out of the small shops I had to go to. And I wasn't even going to consider just letting Gray walk and hold his hand. Too many things to touch and see and, uh, he'd have to let me hold his hand. So I dug through my pile of slings and carriers for my mei tai (figured I better do a back carry) and we were on our way. I'd say that within 35 seconds of getting him on my back, he was asleep. The magic of babywearing. I can't explain it, but it is mine and Gray's "thing" and I love it.
And while I was digging through my carriers I thought I better get around to writing about all my slings, so how about this Tuesday, if you'd like to play along, we'll post pictures of all our slings or our favorite ones and I'll have a linky up so you can link here, too. I get lots of emails about which carrier is best for a baby, a big baby, a toddler, and so forth. I have my favorites, but I'd love to hear your suggestions as well. So take some babywearing pics and spread the love! In the photo above I am 5 months pregnant even though at that angle it doesn't really look like much belly is there. But trust me. It's there.
