sakura bloom sling diaries: discovery

Thursday, December 6, 2012

our christmas tree stands in our living room, at the front of the house.  and as you come down the stairs, at first it's hidden by a wall, but then it comes into full view when you're a few steps from the bottom.  and, every morning since it's been there, parker has exclaimed, "oh woowwwww!" as he comes down the stairs in our arms.  or, something that sounds a lot like "oh wow."  he discovers it as though it's new every single day.  mom!  dad!  come quick!  there's a tree in our living room!  he points and looks at it, entirely fascinated.  i know what they mean when they say christmas is so much fun with little ones.  he couldn't be more surprised and delighted to see it there every morning.  

slowly, the ornaments have moved up from the bottom of the tree.  at first, a few safe ones were down below.  one broken one.  one tugged too hard.  they moved up and up and now most of them are out of his reach.  so, you can imagine his delight when i put him in the sling to gaze at the tree from my height.  all the ornaments!  within his reach!  i pulled them off, he touched them, held them.  and, bonus!  mama was hands-free and got to drink her coffee.  (it was early, after all.)  

discovering christmas through the eyes of parker is altogether sweet.

this is my third entry in the sakura bloom sling diaries

  7. Yep, you're making me want a little one.

    Probably a stupid question- but geez how does he not fall out of the sling? Every time I see those slings, I wonder how mommas make them work without the baby falling out. Is that strange? It just looks so frightening to me!

  11. His cuteness kills me every time you post pictures. I can't wait till my little is more aware that christmas is happening (she is only 2 months, though she does really like the shiny lights all over the house).

  12. @emily baker, steve did! good right?!

    @jessica, not a stupid question! he's really snug, and then, under his butt the sling sort of scoops up, and then behind his back it's high enough... it's hard to explain but i assure you, there's no falling out if it's on correctly!

    @michelle, f21, yes!

  19. you're totally my inspiration for getting the Sakura bloom sling. just wanted to share a friendly tip. it felt a lot better on my shoulder and back if I put the fabric over the whole shoulder, instead of bunched closer to the neck. :)

  22. The first and last pictures -- breathtaking!
    My seven-month old is so enamored with the garland and twinkle lights wrapped around our stair rail. She could stare at those lights for hours I bet. It's like she's thinking, "Mom, why don't we have twinkle lights all over the house all year round?!"
