Baby Wearing

Yesterday we went to our second babywearing meeting out in Virginia Beach. My Orion (pictured), arrived this week so I took it to try it out, and learn how to use it better. He fell alseep immediately with his thumb stuck in his mouth. I tucked his head right in and he stayed that way for quite awhile. The Orion a light weight gauze wrap that is going to be our mainstay for the summer and at the beach.

My Inka showed up in the mail today. It's a cloth woven wrap that I'll be utilizing now that Jules is too heavy for the stretchy Moby. Hopefully I'll get some pictures of it up soon. It's a beautiful stripped pattern, and very colorful, but will be too hot for the summer time.

Today is was nearly 70 so we got up and took an hour and a half walk in the Orion with Nico. Then we came home, showered up, and trekked out in the Inka to the coffee shop, the movie store, and then the library. He napped cozily for most of the time, and we were able to peruse the books for a long time before he was over it all. I love this weather. It's so nice not to have to use the car and to be out and about as a family.

Congrats on your sweet boy. Boys are the best.
