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.
