There is something about incredibly special about babies. Lilly and I were so gleeful today to hold our newest neighbor - just 12 weeks old. Lilly clapped her hands to her cheeks as she chortled with joy in delight over the baby. We dropped by so that I could loan a couple of baby carriers to the mother of 3 and give a quick lesson in baby wearing. There is really nothing much I like better than teaching that as I know it makes for such a happy mom and baby. My favorite was the Moby Wrap when Lilly was quite small and then the mei tai when she got bigger. When she is sad Lilly says: "Want you to carry in the sling." We really don't carry her that much anymore. I miss it but she is nearly 3 and weighs quite a bit.
Here she is with her adoring big brother and dad when she was still light as a feather and often carried for hours a day! Doesn't it look cozy?
And this is a close up of the decorative outer fabric on our much loved mei tai. I am not sure what I will do with it when we are completely finished with it. I would like to somehow salvage it and make a keepsake for Lilly.
