I'm Becoming One of Those Moms

It all started innocently enough. Browsing a popular mom blog and seeing her gorgeous baby wearing skills. Then I started looking around and found other mom's blogs. When I stumbled across Four Little Men and Girly Twins and saw her wearing her twins I decided to look into it a little more. My only experience with baby wearing was a Snugli. I have nothing against the brand, but it did not work for me. A homeschooling friend of mine started talking about wearing her little ones in a homemade wrap. Since she had literally worn her old wrap out she made a new one and gave me one of the extras.

(this is the only baby wearing picture I have. bleh!)
She showed me the basics; that was enough. I am so in love. Wrapping makes it possible for me to grocery shop with all four kids and only one cart. It's so nice not to lug the car seat to the mall, store, or fair. No strollers to mess with either. I'm on my way to addicted though. :) I'm a saver by nature, but when it comes to stuff for my kids it's a different story. My poor husband needs to be forewarned. I could easily spend a lot of money on this stuff. After all, look at the money I'm saving. No stroller..... um, I'll work on that list. ;)
Now I just need to work on eating with her in this. Breeley was covered in powdered sugar after I tried to eat a funnel cake at the fair last month. Oops! :)

Awwwww! LOVE it! I had one of those baby carrying things when Bubba was little, but it was super uncomfortable so DB ended up wearing him around in it. I think I may try a sling with the 4th as well!

You look fantastic and Breeley is ADORABLE... powdered sugar and all!

I wore Stunt Man too but I did not have those cool slings but I did use a store bought sling. It was wonderful. He was addicted to mommy the first 5 months of his life and would cry if anyone else held him. Crazy. But I cherished every moment.
The picture of you is gorgeous. Breeley is so cute too. Love all her hair. Sweet. :)

Awww you look fabulous wearing a baby!! :) I can't believe how big Breeley is getting, I just love her hair, what a little doll!

I loved my Moby Wrap and you can wear them for longer than most slings. And sometimes it's necessary like when a little one doesn't feel good and just wants to me close to mama all day :o)

I don't know what I would do without babywearing! I would definatly have a whole lot more stress. I love both shots babywearing is the best!!
