Tulppaani No. 26

Oh how I love the wraps. I started with a Moby (why didn't I have this with Logan? I had pouches, slings, and a bjorn, but not the most comfy baby carriers!), then a Vatanai wrap, and then a Girasol Tulppaani No 26. It is so lovely. So perfectly rainbow colored. How am I affording all these wraps while on maternity leave? Craigslist! I have been selling things that have been lying around the house. And it has been profitable. Hooray! I also did a couple graphic design jobs that brought in a little cash.

Since the girl is a carseat screamer I wear her a lot. A whole lot. We can't push her in a stroller or she will fuss. I wear her around the house too so I can do things with Logan and she will sleep. Sleeping babies are good. Soooooo good. Awake content babies are good too. It works for both. Hooray! Mostly I just like being close to her. She is sweetness.

The boy is 3

THREE!!!????!!! How did that happen? He had an absolutely wonderful birthday, including a fun-filled day at He really liked touching the bat rays and the dolphins. We had breakfast with Shamu, and that was really cool. We were so close! He had his typical observer thing going on, so we couldn't tell if he was really into it or not, but I think he had fun.


It was also 85 that day and we were so hot.


Then he had a family birthday meal and celebration. He and I spent Monday making this cake...


And the directions to make it are here. It was delish!

Then Auntie H and Uncle M came over for a party on Friday. Yes, he had a full birthday week. Expect nothing less! Here he is in his super cute hat.

Birthday boy

Doesn't he look like such a big kid? Where did my baby go? I think because Aurora is so little, I have been waxing nostalgic about Logan's infancy. I mean, it was no easy stretch there in the beginning, but he was so adorable. And he didn't talk back or kick things. So yeah, times have changed.

Quickly in Aurora news. I got my first giggle out of her tonight. She loves singing, which is quite a switch from her big brother who looked at me like I had three heads when I tried to sing him songs. I will have to get a video of it because she is so cute.
