I think I can
I think I can
I think I can
I think I can
I think I can
look who can stand! (sorry, used all the disk space again on my harddrive... no pics today.. can't open my Adobe photoshop to make my RAW pics into JPEGS for the blog... will add later :) )
Not for long but he practices every day.. every hour... every chance he gets to be on the floor.

I got a new sling the other day. I love slings.. makes being a mommy so much easier. I am told so many times that my kids don't whine or cry when they are babes.. WEll, it's because they are ON me! literally ON ME! I have been approached by strangers to check out the sling- wish I could sell them for the company and make some extra money! lol! I think for any mom- first time or 3rd time- this is the way to take care of your needs as well as the baby's. The other sling has been worn out and is almost threadbare! When I opened the package with the new one Mr. T was so excited to see a new one- I got the same fabric! He was jumping up and down on his tush he was so thrilled.. the girls said the other one can't be destroyed but then I explained I would tear it apart and make a LO for their scrapbooks explaining my reasoning for purchasing one in the first place.
They make nursing discreet. My brother, who calls me a LaLecheLeagueNazi, can never tell that I am nursing in front of him. HA! It just looks like the baby is sleeping :) so nice! When the baby is small it keeps *most* people from coming up and touching the baby over and over because they then are invading MY space! (doesn't that drive you nuts when someone invades your space?? ugh! that is for another blog another day)
Anyway, if you know of someone having a baby get one of these slings! I got mine from Over the Shoulder BAby Holder. But there are others out there.
MayaWrap makes one without padding. It folds up nicely in your diaper bag or whatever. I just looked it up and it seems as though they are doing one with padding! how 'bout that? hmmmmmm I love the fabrics they use- Guatemalan style- yummy! Maya Wrap is a good alternative to the OTSBH that I have in that it is made from natural manmade weave instead of a machine weave. When I got my first sling I was desperate to get things done in my house. It may not be the most fasionalbe thing in the world but I do use it every day and love it! ok. off my box.. told you I should sell them! lol!
