You pock up some new talrnts when yiu have a nww born babt.
Such as typung onw handrd.
I'm prdtyy good at it, if I do sqy so myswlf.
Seriously. They always want to be held.
And if I could have it my way, I'd hold 'em all the doo long day.
But alas, I have a litter of kids, so no sitting all day with the cute
& cuddly baby. Moms have tried so many different things to fix this.
I myself own a Snugli, Baby Bjorn,
some kind of new born sling & The Mother Wrap.
Wow, quite a collection.
But each of these requires some commitment to wear,
or space in the diaper bag, or only fit for a few months.
I love each one I own. They each have a different use.
But I've always wanted one of these guys.
They are $50 on the website I've seen them on.
$34.99 on Etsy. But a friend of mine had one,
& she let me copy the measurements.
I fooled around with it, and figured out a super easy pattern.
Only $8 in fabric & 20 minutes of my time.
Yup, they are so easy it was only 20 minutes to make.
They are wide enough to use as a blanket,
have a curve to fit the kid's bum,
can be used as a sling (Elliott is too long already for that),
& I can also carry Charly around on my hip or back.
They are so easy to put on, and take up no space.
Sigh. I'm in love.
So yes, I folded laundry, cleaned the kitchen,
& other stuff, all with my cute wittle bebe on my hip.
She loves it. She gets to be held, & I get things done.
Woo Hoo for the Mommy!!
