The weather has been unseasonably warm here as of late and since I was feeling a bit like super-mom, I decided to take all the children on a walk to the post office and the library (about a half mile round trip).
I put Keian in one of my homemade ring-slings (the blue and white toile that screamed “MAKE ME INTO A SLING” from the fabric aisles of WalMart–ironically enough, it screamed the same thing to a nice lady I met at a homeschool conference last year when we both realized we had the exact same homemade sling!) I put Lia in the baby jogger w/ my 5 yo pushing and my oldest child walked alongside me waiting his turn to push the jogger on the return trip.
Now, keep in mind that baby was 10 lbs at birth. He’s well over 13 lbs now and 13 pounds gets heavy after a while no matter how you carry it.
