The hardest thing to me about not knowing what Spawnie is, that it puts a halt on all of my urges to shop. Sure… This may be a good thing now, but it really just means I’m going to be spending more later. I’ve been a good girl though. I honestly can’t remember that last time I bought something for myself (besides my crazy food cravings) so my normal splurge money has been stored for my mini me (or mini hubs).
When I first started chatting with Lana from Clementine Rose we had talked about working together on my blog but I was so torn. I LOVE so many things in her shop but I can’t lunge my favorites into my shopping cart until I know if the little one I’m carrying is a he or a she.
Even silly little things like hooded towels make a difference to me. Call me silly but if Spawnie is a girl most everything must be pink! It’s my favorite color and my girl will just have to wear it until one of us tires of it. As I browsed around I found something I thought could work whether boy or girl. I got the Camden Baby Sling.
I know I want to be a baby wearing mama… I have loved the idea of pretending to be a kangaroo since I saw my first baby sling. Now I can’t get enough of them. If it weren’t for me not knowing what Spawnie is yet I’d probably have several by now, but for my first one I decided to go with my favorite, which happened to be blue (and cause deep down I know Spawnie is a boy).One of my best friends had a baby a few months ago and her little girl is who I like to call my “test baby.” She adorable, photogenic, and happy! I couldn’t ask for a better model. …She’s also Spawnie’s future BFF or girlfriend! First off, Happy Birthday to mommy Heidi! (I had to through that in there). My model friend Heidi bought a baby sling for her baby Zoila a few months ago so I asked her to compare mine to the one she has. At first glance she told me that mine was a lot bigger and softer than hers.When she put Zoila in she said it was really comfortable… And unlike her other sling, baby Zoila likes it!! I couldn’t help but snap a few cute pictures.I’m not gonna lie, one reason I’m pretty excited about having a carrier to hold my baby in is so (hopefully) I can still do some browsing online after becoming a busy mom, with Spawnie hanging right on me!I’ve heard some pros and cons of baby wearing but I think if it works for us, I will definitely be a baby wearing mama!
