I am absolutely grateful for every symptom, every run to the washroom, every nauseating car ride, every headache, every uneaten meal, and every medication I must take to get them here. I am grateful that despite how long the road has been so far, that the real journey is just beginning.
Babywearing through pregnancy has turned out to be an unanticipated challenge. With a toddler whose independence I strongly encourage, the pains and aches of late third trimester, and the close-to-home nesting, the need to wear has dropped significantly. This isn't to say that we aren't wearing at all. As an active member of a local… Continue reading Ruck with Pregnancy Support Pass
We announced our second little one in early March. I used a program called RPG maker to create a 'game'' that revealed our good news at the end of a scripted sequence. Knowing that the vast majority of people would not take the time to 'play' the game, I recorded myself going through the game using a program called xsplit (local recording feature that saves the raw footage right to my computer). The 'game' was still quite long and I did as much editing as I thought I could get away with, but still it was a bit longer than I would have liked. We were sure to include our son Trent as the main character and it worked out just right.
Very recently I played host to the Luluna Fusion Coral of Vine that is currently travelling around North Texas. I love hosting wraps and this was my first experience with Luluna Slings. I was impressed with the soft floppiness of the wrap as soon as it was placed in my arms. For a wrap that was rumoured to need some breaking in, it felt as if it had held a magical number of babes even before it was our turn. Seven days to wear and discover seemed
Last year I decided I would attempt to take a photo every day during 2017. I didn't quite get there but I did end up with SO MANY great memories captured. Not gunna lie, most of the photos are of my son, but to say he has been one of the biggest factors in our… Continue reading 365 Project 2017

Buckle carriers are quick and easy to learn once you find the right… Continue reading BabyWearing Fails
As my son grows older and more independent, my babywearing days grown shorter. Nothing saddens me more than the realization that these days will soon come to an end. My passion for babywearing has not slowed down with the need but rather increased. My stash has grown, my friendships in the babywearing community have grown,… Continue reading Let’s Try: Flipless HJBC (Half Jordan’s Back Carry)

This month one of our local babywearing groups challenged wrappers to try a double hammock carry (in any variation) every day for the entire month. We certainly didn't manage every single day but we did participate often enough that the scary double hammock is not quite as scary anymore. Here you will see one of… Continue reading Let’s Try: Double Hammock!
As a creative person by nature I just love making all kinds of things. Discovering all the fun things that I can make for my son has been an awesome epiphany and has allowed me to explore new materials to create with. My comfort zone is paint and pixels but this past week I began… Continue reading Creative Momma
