A "new" wrap

So I don't pride myself on being a good housekeeper. I'm just not...and that's that.
My friend T loaned me this baby carrier she SEWED.
She sews everything (purses, nursing covers, blankies...) and I'm begging her to let me sell some stuff for her in my Etsy shop.

I'd never tried a back carrier (except for that mountain hiking contraption), and it was a little tough to hoist Story in there, but I did it (possibly incorrectly?). And I love it!
We both do.
Babywearing rocks.
I am off to bed and am wishing I wouldn't have eaten broccoli prior to this evening's run...

Ahem.

that looks like an awesome baby wrap! so comfy for all parties involved. i love that first picture....and i relate. not too great at the house keeping either :) wishing i had someone small enough to bathe in the sink still...(don't mind me, i'm just in that stage of idealizing babyhood since my youngest is about to turn 6).

so cute! i wear my son in a moby wrap, but i always do a front carry and it is kah-illin' my back! i would loooove to learn how to do a back carry. if your friend sold these, i would totally buy one! :)

Oh Mindy - the first picture made me laugh! How adorable and just what a busy mom's kitchen should look like - with the most prized possession in the sink! Love it!

Julie said...

I've never tried a back carrier either. That is a darling wrap! I think Story really likes it. :)

Gina said...

Broccoli before I run! that cracks me up, only because I've been there! I've slowly (and painfully) learned what I should and shouldn't eat before runs, most green things are one of those shouldn't eats. I love the wrap too-I loved wearing my girls in the sling when they were younger. Such great memories!

Oh my word. I love that baby in the sink. Fantastic. I think we could be friends.

I forgot you moved blogs like forever ago, and realized I had not seen a post from you pop up in my reader. Umm duh, cause I somehow didn't add your new one to it. Sad day.

I too am a horrible house keeper. I try. and I try some more.
But somehow my house is usually in a wreck. ugh.

LOVE that little carrier. Think I'm going to have to invest in something like that in the coming months. It will make having hands free to get things done a lot easier.
