Favorite Babywearing Photos: My FAVORITE Photo

My favorite babywearing photo, circa 2008.

This photo brings tears to my eyes, I love it so much.

It's from our first photo shoot as a family of six, taken by Beth.

I'm wearing Ivy as a newborn- she was just 1 1/2 months old (look at her cute little face peeking out!), in my favorite newborn carry (tummy to tummy) and oh the feeling of holding a baby close. This is babywearing for me.

The sling in the photo is an UpMama sling which is a ring sling with a wider pouch area (and it has a pocket in the tail. Gray used to stuff that pocket with leaves and other things he'd find at the park. And when I gave it to Beth's sister Sarah to use for her new baby the other day, I found $5 in that pocket! YAY!)


[The winner of Round 2 of the Sakura Bloom Triathlon will be announced tomorrow, and I'll also feature my favorite from the photos linked in the comments on this post.]

The winners of the pouch giveaways:

Hugamonkey goes to Melody!

Petunia Picklebottom goes to Elita!

THANK YOU for your prayers and support for my friend Anissa and her family. There has been some GOOD news in the updates! But please note she is still in very serious condition and needs prayers prayers prayers.

I decided to go ahead and post as I planned today. Anissa would want us laughing and enjoying life this very moment. All good things to come, I just KNOW.

Thinking of you, Anissa!

That is what I have (I made it myself, though-didn't purchase it from the company), and I LOVE it, but I just wanted to hear your thoughts :)
