Today I am . . .

  • Missing my mom. Her week here sped by way too fast. 
  • Glad that Bart has the rest of the month off. 
  • Snuggling my sweet little baby (and trying to figure out the Moby wrap that Merrick made for me).
  • Watching Craigslist for a double running stroller.
  • Eating the leftover enchiladas a lovely friend brought for dinner over the weekend. 
  • Wrapping and shipping a couple of last Christmas presents.
  • Rejoicing that I now have more than five items of clothing to wear. 
  • Taking a little family walk to the park.
  • So sad about the shootings last week – it just breaks my heart.
  • Patting myself on the back for having ordered Christmas cards.

    I LOVED my stretchy wrap and, not that you asked for them, but here are some good instructions I always send my friends who are trying to figure out the wraps.

    This is a link to the wrap I always used.

    Here is the newborn carry I will definitely try next time, but didn't know about this time.

    Here is a chart that shows a lot of different wraps and how to do them.

    Weird, it seems to have deleted all my links, so I guess if you want instructions, let me know and I'll send you the links. 🙂 Congratulations on another darling baby!

    She is seriously so sweet. I tried to ask Bart to send more pics, but did he? NO. 🙂 (I would welcome an email full of as many pictures as you want to send.) Sounds like a great day. Enjoy it!

    Figuring out your moby will be the best thing you've ever done. Okay maybe that is too strong, but it's a worthwhile endeavor!

    Oh, those cheeks! And I borrowed this post idea… Hope you don't mind 🙂

    That's a pretty good list for just having a baby 🙂

    I am also re-reading The Happiness Project right now! Thought that the end of the year was a good time to read this book and make plans for improving next year. How nice that Bart gets so much time off with the new baby!

    She's so cute. Enjoy your holiday!

    I definitely recommend finding some you tube videos of how to use wraps for various carries. It helps so much, and I find myself going back to a few sites as my baby gets older to learn about other ways to use the wrap.
