Speaking of babywearing…

My Wordless Wednesday post this week is a pic of me wearing Julian in the Moby. I don’t use the Moby all that much now that he’s such a big boy (and nearly 9 months old) and the fabric stretches out a bit. My carrier of choice is actually the Ergo. (Love it!) But I must say that even though he’s a chunk-a-monkey, I still love wearing him. There are so many times (on hikes, in stores, at the farmer’s market, etc.) when it’s so much more convenient to wear Julian rather than try to maneuver a stroller. He has actually only been in a stroller (our two-seater jogging stroller that’s still out of commission due to a missing wheel – oy!) a handful of times. Otherwise if we go out somewhere, I’m wearing him. He loves being near eye-level with the rest of the world and I love the closeness and knowing he’s safe and comfy.

Segue into a couple cool babywearing contests… ;)

Steph at Adventures in Babywearing is giving away a cute and colorful Baby Dagny Peekaboo Pouch. I’d love to get my hands on this! I really need a quick and easy carrier for those times I want to pop Julian in for a few minutes to get something done (like push Ava on the swing in the backyard and keep him from eating dirt and grass). ;) Also worth noting is the fact that Baby Dagny is currently having a big warehouse moving sale – 75% off prices!

Also, When 2 Became 3 is giving away a beautiful wrap that she made herself. Very nice! :)
