We are a family that loves baby wearing!

When I saw posts on moms talking about baby wearing, I always though I loved my stroller too much to start wearing Lillie. But as I was doing daycare and could not afford a double stroller, I decided to buy a sling for Lillie. I loved my sling even though sometimes it was hard to use. I then found the mei tai and loved how it looked, but knew I couldn't afford a good one. That is when I started looking on line for paterns. Eventually I found a patern and changed it to look more like a Baby Hawk carrier. Then I went to work. I found an old curtain to use for the fabric and a part of some cool sheets we weren't using anymore. I used one of the think fabric pads you can use to change baby on for head support for a littler baby (the head support was tucked in on this picture for some reason). Doesn't look exactly like a Baby Hawk, but good enough for me!Anways, I have loved my mei tai and am so glad I am a baby wearing mama now! So much that when deciding to go for a walk and pick up the boys at school, I used a stroller for Lillie and she just kept saying that she was going to fall out. She ended up walking the whole way! My oldest boy loves to carry Lillie too. I will post one of him when I can find it! :)
And on another note: Can anyone tell me how to post a picture on blogger and not have it the first thing on my post?

Hey Karrie!

Jumped over from your comments on my blog ;-) I love the sling you made...I want one that doesn't hurt my back but am not very savvy to make one, I think...

About the can just click and drag it to where you want it in the post. Or you can click on the html view, copy the image code and paste it where you want it. Hope that helps!

If you want to have pictures in your blog instead of right at the top of the post here's what you can do.
On the new post page where you post, in the right hand side you will see Edit HTML. Before you go there, add your picture, then go to EDIT HTML and you will see what the HTML looks like. Copy the HTML code.
Type what you want to type then at the end of what you typed (where you want the picture) go back to HTML and paste the original photo you wanted there. I hope this makes sense.

Thanks for visiting my site...You have a beautiful family!

Howdy from SW Washington! Love baby wearing, but with the baby now being almost 3 and a wiggly boy, I don't get to do it very often anymore...sigh.
