Our Saturdays, when Peter isn't shooting, are some of the easiest days. We usually end up staying in bed well past 9 am, and we take quite a long time to get ourselves ready to adventure as a foursome. Some of our adventures only include hot chocolate and coffees, some include lunch and museums, and some include meeting friends and family for quick day dates. It's always super low maintenance and supremly wonderful.
I've teamed up with Ergobaby, to document a few simple, yet special outings using our Ergo baby over the next few months. The thing is friends, I've always loved Ergobaby. I remember when we first had River and we were way too broke to purchase one outright. We already purchased so many other wraps and carriers, and I couldn't justify it at that time. I had searched all over Craigslist for one, and hardly ever saw one listed. Even the family Yahoo groups I was a part of hardly ever posted one. Many parents hold on to their Ergo with dear life. I don't blame them. Their babies, like my babies, fit comfortably in them from the newborn stage, well into their toddler years. Eventually, we went and purchased a new one, and it was so worth it.
Does your kid insist on going by herself in that turnstile? Mine does. Every time. ;)
Sometimes mama gets a break from baby wearing and papa takes over. I find Peter hot on another level when I see him baby wearing. You've probably heard this enough from other moms. But it's true. Irresistible.
I'm so happy that Ergo asked me to take part and document this time in our lives. We are approaching this new world of exploring in New York City with a toddler and a baby, with optimism and joy. Having our Ergo along just seems right. It's functional, easy to style around, and most importantly, comfortable for both Oak and I.
