I do declare, he loves it! I decided to buy a sling for Roman. I have never owned one before because normally my babies aren't fond of them. It seems like the carriers you buy at the store are very limited, however this Etc. Sling is wonderful. I can carry him facing out, in, on my hip, on my back facing out or in, carry with one shoulder or both. This is the sling for me. This sling fits me and even Levi, because you can tighten it for either size. This sling can be worn by a tiny baby or a toddler, okay there is no pay off for me sharing this, so believe me when I say its been amazing for me.
When I pulled it out of the package I was relunctant to get too excited, but it came with a dvd showing you how to use all the positions, thankfully, because at first I was down right confused. Then the lightbulb went off and now I feel like I am an old pro. I actually can get him on and off all by myself very quickly.
I guess I am sharing this, new to me, invention because it has been a lifesaver while I am running around. I was at wrestling practice from 5:30-8:00pm last night and he slept most of the time while I wore him. Normally I am trying to figure out what to do with his little body so it doesn't get trampled over at these hectic, kids rolling around, activities. There were so many coats, shoes, sweats all over the gym that I was afraid to put him on the blanket for fear he would look like all the other mess and get squished. I also loved the idea that he wasn't laying on the drafty, hard, cold gym floor. He was right where he belongs, listening to my heartbeat and smelling my Chai Tea breath...hehehe. (He doesn't have to know that isn't what regular oxygen smells like yet.)
So Saturday is going to be crazy. Dennis is in charge of bracketing and staging, River and Isaiah will be reffing, Levi and Abram will be wrestling. I am committed to an entire day at the concession stand for our Little Guy Wrestling tournament. I was wondering how I would accomplish this with little Roman and everyone else preoccupied, but then thought I would cross that bridge when I got to it, (this is how I normally solve the world's problems), but now I know. Sling!!
Dennis saw me wearing him at wrestling practice and he said, "Oh honey, that is just the sweetest thing I have ever seen. It almost looks you are pregnant, but we get to see the little guy." I cocked my head to the side optimistically and said, "Well maybe YOU can wear him for awhile on Saturday too."He chuckled heartily, shook his head, and said, "Are you kidding me? What part of looking pregnant did you not understand, I am not wearing him at a wrestling tournie." *Giant smile* Hmmm...Welp, you can't blame a girl for asking.
