Babywearing // It’s the Little Things

Hello! I’m linking up with Ashley and Jess for “It’s the Little Things.” I love sharing in this link up since it’s such a great way for me to document and remember the little things as a mom.

Miss Harper had a respiratory virus last week and all she wanted was for mommy to hold her.  She didn’t want daddy to hold her at all:( While I love cuddling and holding her, it’s very difficult to make dinner or get anything done around the house in the evenings.  So I gave her a choice: being held in the baby carrier, sitting on the sofa while mommy works, or let daddy hold her.  She said, “Mommy, put me in baby carrier.”  It was so nice to hold her in the carrier and snuggle with her…she hasn’t been in the baby carrier in probably over a year.  You know she must not have been feeling well if she wanted in the baby carrier, ha!

He liked the Ergo the best but still wasn’t so fond of being carried. He preferred to just be held without the carrier! Once Harper was born, I tried to wear her more since I had a 22 month old to chase around.  I did end up using the Ergo more with her but still not nearly as much as I see some people use them.  My kiddos just weren’t that big into it.  However, I cherish the babywearing times I had and look back at these photos (and others from when Will and Harper were babies) and remember those times with great joy. I’m soaking up the last few moments when Harper still wants to be carried in the Ergo:)

  1. So sweet! I never had a carrier for Elin but would love to go back in time when she would let me hold her like that! Now she only lasts for a few seconds and then she will spot a toy across the room and dash off my lap!

  2. aww sad, I hope she is feeling all better. Aria’s last bout of teething sent her into major mama cling. I loved it, but I was bummed for dad whom she wanted nothing to do with. She was also not big into the carrier, she refused to be in actually…she also refused to be carried facing toward the body, it was facing outward or misery! She was so picky.
