For the past 6 months I have participated in 3 crafty swap exchanges with babywearing parents in my area. Every three months we are assigned a new 'secret partner' who we internet stalk, spend some time to make them something we think they will like, wrap it up, get together either close or from… Continue reading Creative Collective
#Fluffmail Friday! So we've had a rough week, feverish sick baby, ER visit, sleepless nights (and days), cancelled plans, BUUUUUUT fluff mail makes it all better right? 😉 I think so.
You guys! I am super excited to have recently been invited to be a part of the Soul ambassador program!
Because grocery shopping at 11pm, after getting the baby back to sleep is far more convenient than I ever imagined it could be.
I've given in. There's no denying it now, I've officially tumbled into 'mommy blogging' territory. Instead of fighting it because of all the negativity and condescension that seems to come with that label, it is time to embrace.

Rucksacks and back naps! As some of you know I've gotten hooked into an amazing local babywearing community since the middle of my pregnancy. Not only are these folks super supportive and fast becoming friends but I am learning so much about wrapping, carrying, and all the benefits that go with. Right now I'm focused on learning how to back carry. Today I tried a new finish and for the last two days simply having Trent on my back has equalled pretty decent naps. My kid, the sleepless wonder for the first three and a half to four months (night or day), is napping.
It's true, this past weekend we were 'those people' on your airplane. In the past, as a childless couple we would often hope our flights were baby free.
