Feeling The Love

I have been babywearing Liam since he was about 6 weeks old. He was a small 8 lbs and only 20 inches at that age. He was so small I felt like he was lost in the fabric of our then New Native Sling. But now at 2 1/2 and weighing in at 30 lbs and more then 30 inches tall, it takes every inch of our storchenwiege wrap to hold him. He really is quite old to be worn on the front and yet we both love it so much. His head is in perfect range for me to kiss on him, talk to him face to face, I am also able to have eye contact with him and my favorite part is that I am able to feel him cuddle down into my chest as he falls to sleep and I love to sniff his hair as I am going about my daily tasks. I really love to have him on my back when I am cleanining, shopping, or in a huge hurry and need to get him where I need to go faster. But there is a wonderful and nurturing power in wearing him on my front. I know that he wont be able to ride on the front for more then probably 6 months but I am still enjoying him there on my front so much. It will be a sad day for both of us when he can only fit on my back!

I can't believe you can still fit him on your front like that! It gives me hope I will be able to carry Kailey that long. You look great by the way, I love your hair in this picture.
