A Visit, A Walk, and Good Stuff

Yesterday was a very exciting day! First, Auntie Marsha came to visit. Now, for those of you who are not, perhaps, New England natives, it is important to note that this is pronounced AHNT-ie Marsha--not ant-ie like the insect. I suspect that Steph will be "antie," like the insect and the rest of the country, but we here in New England don't cotton to no outsiders' pronunciations, and really it should be pronounced Ahntie Mahsha.

So, the exciting upshot is that Marsha let me take a photo! Of her! And the baby. She even smiled for it. I'm so proud.

Adam looks at her skeptically in that photo, but he had a good time and cuddled cheerfully. And, because he's so cute, let's look at him again.

Then, because the weather was actually pretty darned nice, and because we mostly stay in the house all the time, we decided to go for a walk around the block and try out the new sling. Now, I still need to learn how to use it properly--I've been shown with dolls and in pictures, but never in person with a real baby. So we did what seemed right theoretically, and he was all curled up and asleep, but I'm still not 100% sure it was right. So I kept my arm wrapped around him the whole time.

He's outgrown all his newborn hats (already! My boy's growing up so fast!), but he fits pretty nicely into the adorable one that Liala made for him, and it was good that he had something plenty warm on his head.

And I love the sling! He was easy to carry, it was comfortable for me, and most interestingly he seemed really comfortable! He doesn't really like the Baby Bjorn (his legs dangle in that one), but if sleep is an indicator (and with a newborn, I think it is), he loves the sling. Which I got for a great deal from this lady online. It cost about half of what the one I was looking at in the store did.

It was a really nice walk--we went to the Italian food store around the corner and got some fresh mozzarella and some fancy foreign sodas, and we walked home with a sleeping baby on a mild November evening. Life is pretty good.

We say "aunt" correctly in Minnesota, too. :) I am not an insect!!

I'm so glad you like your sling--I still use mine with Sarah (19 months)!
