Sakura Bloom Sling Diaries: Delight

Monday, October 15, 2012

I'm incredibly excited to be a part of the next volume of the Sakura Bloom Sling Diaries (thank you, Sakura Bloom!!)  Over the next six months, I will be (along with 14 other amazing women) posting an entry dedicated to babywearing once a month following a certain theme.  

Babywearing has been one of my greatest joys since having Parker.  As someone who seriously couldn't get enough of pregnancy, I was rather reticent, emotional, downright weepy to give birth and then let that relationship between Mom and babe go.  So... I wore him.  I wore him, and wore him, and wore him some more.  "What, you want to hold my baby?  Sorry, I'm wearing him!"  I wore him as I walked, as I shopped, as he slept, as he cried.  His ear against my chest, he was never far from my heartbeat.  

Now that he's a walkin' man who never stops, I don't get the chance to wear him as much.  When I put him in the sling, he started hugging me and touching my face.  He quickly remembered, "Ah, yes.  We've been here before."  I know we both like it a lot.

Up high by me, we delight in a post-rain walk in the woods.  A wet pumpkin, some damp leaves and dewey, fallen pine.  We discover fall together.

I wear Parker in the Sakura Bloom simple silk sling in midnight.

What we wear: my shirt // Parker's shoes

  1. There is too much cuteness in one post.
    Babywearing is a beautiful thing! I wonder if its something you can get better at with practice? I was too antsy with the first two. Maybe next go round:)

  2. Love that this is a series! I mean sometimes I randomly think about things that I want to do one day as a mom, and wearing my baby is totally one of them. Can't wait to learn more through you!

  3. i love babywearing too and debated a sling but always kind of thought it would hurt my back. I'll be curious to see what you think of it comfort wise (especially in another six months)!

  4. i can totally see myself being that kind of mommy. you two are two peas in a pod :)

  5. Can you teach a photoshop class? Because this are beautiful, and beautifully edited. Love them all.

  6. love these photos you look so good!

    Babywearing is the best. i have about 12 babysitt kids and a few siblings. i always wear the babys while i play with the toddlers... or do anything else... it is just the best!

  7. @rachael, i used picmonkey for these ones... played around w/ the curves!

    @anna, wearing the third is a must! you'll need your hands free to chase the other two! :)

    @ashley, i love it so far! so does he...

  8. I always smile when I see your parenting and natural health posts, because our styles seem to be very similar. We even have matching age gaps in our marriages. ;)

  9. Hello there!
    Is that a peruvian hat your baby is wearing?
    My sister just came back from a trip to Peru and brought a baby rattle and little tradional shirt. No, she doesn't have a baby... She just bought them because they were too cute :)
