Blissdom, backwards. With a baby on my back.

blissdom babywearing, mei tai


I think the best way to write up my experience at Blissdom is to work my way backwards. It's better for my brain this way.


Sunday was our day to go home. We had late checkout so I figured Sarah, Ivy, & I would sleep in pretty late considering we didn't get back to our room until 3 in the morning. (I can't wait to write that post.)

But I actually woke up a bit early. I started getting my things packed and stepped out on our veranda (it was an indoor hotel but we were in some sort of biodome and our veranda overlooked the wild gardens --it was awesome.)


It was peaceful and quiet, and I even blogged. I had (and still have) so much to say, after the past three days. It really washed over me that morning. It's so hard to explain, but I'll try with my next few posts.

Ivy woke up and I finished packing and getting on my makeup by putting her on my back in the mei tai.

When we got in line to board the plane I put Ivy in the mei tai again (front carry) and she soon fell asleep. She ended up sleeping like that throughout the entire flight and woke up after landing.

That was also super awesome.

    I seriously want to take our picture every time I've got my babe in the carrier. I think they're just darling tucked in there.

  12. ok, I know I have said this several times, but I really wish I knew about babywearing when my kids were young! Many of our conversations about my children, with anyone, is how they were always in one arm! Yes, I used this thing they called, a snuggli, when going to the mall or grocery store and yes it worked well for those things, but I can tell you, my right arm, is NOT just slightly stronger! And I will never apologize for holding my children! Steph your an absolute doll and your children are amazing, but your love for your family is far beyond words! Love it! Love your Blissdom trip!

  14. I love babywearing. Elizabeth isn't that excited about it at the moment (wants to go places! by herself!) but maybe this is just a phase.

  19. I just got the Mei Tai at BlissDom (from @momalovebug), and I love it so much! But I'm kind of afraid to try the back-carry. It seems ... daunting. Like she might fall out or be all wonky in there and I'd not have a clue how to fix it. Or how to get her off! Maybe I should just stick with front-carrying for right now. :)

  20. I wish I knew you when I had littler babies. I mean, Davey is three and I didn't do it with him either, but I so wish I knew you back then so that I could wear my bab(ies).

    You are a shining star. Your smile is so bright. I'm so thankful to feel your warmth!
