So that they can still get things done while holding their young.
To free up my hands I keep practicing with my wrap. I do use the mobywrap sometimes but Ember seems to hate it.
Ember LOVES the Snugli front carrier I have. But I don’t. So I’m stubbornly going to keep working at this one!
When there is a day where Ember cries any time I put her down (today) then the Snugli comes out. She LOVES this thing! Weird baby… it doesn’t seem comfy to me.
I came out from putting away laundry to find Payson like this:
Today I cleaned out my junk cupboard and one of the things in there was a stack of pictures from when we lived in Texas. I sat down with Payson to look through them and ask him who was who.
He guessed Brooklyn right but he called Sierra “Payson” and called his cousin Ellie (she was a baby) “Ember.” Which he pronounces, “Embowww.”
I showed him a picture of my little sister, Jeena, and said, “Who’s that?” And he said, “Mommy!”
This was the picture he was looking at:
I finally got Ember to sleep out of my arms by using the swing. She actually doesn’t like the swing all that much but once in a while she’ll tolerate it.
I took a bazillion pictures of her after her nap.
I just can’t get enough of that cute face and those sweet little smiles.
She gets prettier every day.
She’s been starting to coo a teeny bit more. It’s so funny to watch her little mouth going and her try so hard to get those noises out.
I love taking pictures of her feet. I should take a picture of them every day and then I can have a slideshow of her adorable toosties as my desktop background.
Ember hates Payson’s old bouncy chair but loves this pink one… it is a lot softer.
She enjoyed looking at the toys while listening to the music it plays.
Then she got really sleepy.
It’d be nice to be able to lay down and take a nap with her.
