A Thousand Words Thursday - my boys

Cheaper Than Therapy

It still feels funny to say that. The boys, my boys. I have two of them. It's growing on me! I have no terribly profound photos this week, just some everyday fun.
Here's MD wearing daddy's glasses.

Here's JC just being cute, and happy.

You can see more A Thousand Words Thursday, photos worth a thousand words, at Cheaper Than Therapy.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I also wanted to mention I have made my first baby sling. I've tried several store-bought slings that are just uncomfortable and don't fit correctly (I'm 5'1"). Baby usually ended up swinging around below my hip and my shoulder would hurt. I wanted to give baby-wearing a go (again) because this little guy is really needy and with 3 others I have a hard time just carrying him on my hip. I found a great Baby Sling Patten for free and used stretchy fleece. I L-O-V-E it!! Baby wearing will be SO much easier with this. It's snug, above my waist where it belongs, and I actually feel free to do my thing without constantly steadying JC with my other hand. The shoulder part is wide and really disperses his weight so my back and neck feel fine. He's getting used to it, I wore him most of this evening. I will for sure be bringing this to the mall next time I go. I'll post a pic tomorrow!

~UPDATE~

Us and the sling - it's reversable chocolate brown & baby blue fleece

They look adorable!

Don't you just love the bumbo?

So??? Where's the pic of the sling? Can you get one with you wearing it? I've thought one might be nice to have with Roo just so I might have at least one free hand.
