in honor of international baby-wearing week,
i thought i would take yall on a photo journey of our
baby-wearing, now toddler wearing, adventures!!

i don't know how i would have gotten through these two years with out it!

to have her close.
to be able to comfort her when my arms are dead tired.
to give her peace and rest in large crowds.

to nourish her with mama milk on...
our trips to target, travels, and at home.
to rock her back and forth when she was sick.

those memories, looking at these photos...
so raw. full of emotion.
i remember feeling helpless and wanting to be sick for her.
granted, they were only colds.
i remember the late nights spent soothing her in a carrier.
the christmas lights twinkling...

oh and we get to do this all over again!!!

the first year...

the second year...

we have used soft-structured carriers, woven wraps, ring slings, moby/sleepy wraps..
and by far our favorite go-to...
the Sakura Bloom ring sling.
great for toddlers.
so supportive, i can even wear her through pregnancy!!

ryan actually prefers our Sakura Bloom slings over everything.
i have to agree. :)
although, i would love a Solly Baby Wrap for those early newborn months. :)
i hated how hot our moby/sleepy wrap got!
