Discovery and Babywearing

24 Apr

Yesterday, we bundled up and went on a walk despite the change in temperatures.

Her sleepy owl hat almost doesn’t fit anymore and it really made me realize how quickly she is growing. It’s sort of hard to believe that she has more than doubled in size in the past 3 months.

Anyway, Hunter strapped her in the Ergo and we were on our way.

Side note: If you have a small child or are pregnant, get one of these.  They aren’t that much more expensive than other carriers and have been a life saver.  Not only does she love it, it’s also one of the few carriers designed so that your baby is in a natural seated position and helps prevent hip dysplasia from developing (see articles here and here).  Ours is so comfortable.  It doesn’t hurt my back and I feel like she’s safe and secure in there.  Hunter loves it, too.  And you can use it until they are much older, unlike a lot of carriers.

Normally, she goes to sleep within 5 minutes in that things, but yesterday she was alert and interested in everything around her.  If a car went by, she watched it.  She had her eye on some birds and the dogs made her smile.  I’m so excited to watch her explore the world and to introduce her into the things I loved growing up.  I do, however, hope her mud pies are more tasty than mine and that she doesn’t try to pick leaves out of a hornet’s nest.

She’s also discovered that she can chew on toys.  I caught her trying her hardest to get her Sophie in her mouth this afternoon:

She eventually got it there, chewed on it for a second and then dropped it.  I guess she needs some practice.

      Haha, yes! I don’t know if you remember this, but when we were little we totally decided what we were going to name our kids, put it in a tin container and buried it in your yard. When I got pregnant, I seriously considered going over there and digging it up!
