Today we are mostly boobin’ and cuddling! 

How is everyone else coping today? I think we have a few back teeth coming through that are causing this little bundle to want boobies and up-cuddles all day. I need my hands to cook for Noah,  so thankfully we know how to rock a back carry! I also think the thing of stroking an animal makes you feel calm works with a little person. I always feel better when I have had an up-cuddle and I know I have helped Winnie to feel better.  Yay baby (toddler) wearing, we are not letting bad anxious moods rule today!!

3 attempts at a family photo pretty much failed! Toddlers move around way too much 😆 #family #familyphotos #toddlersofinstagram #babywearing #wearallthebabies #connecta #failedphoto #sciencemuseum #mumlife #mummyblog #parentblogger #parenting

When people say you shouldn’t Co-sleeping or baby wear for whatever stupid reason they made up. This is worth more than any stats they think they know. We are not ‘making a rod for our own backs’ or making babies too dependent on us, we are doing the most natural thing and loving our babies in the most natural way. #wearallthebabies #babywearing #tula #connecta #parenting #parentblogger #everyonehasanopinion #mummyblog #mumlife #gentleparenting #attachmentparenting #bestforbaby

Today I carried Noah in the Tula for the first time in a really long time! Being pregnant with Winnie and generally a feeble mess since then meant he was just too heavy (and he is almost half the size of me!) I decided to take him for a ‘tula cuddle’ to calm him down a bit before bed as he was just getting too crazy for my liking.

I adore how his face lit up when he saw me putting the tula on, it has been such a long time since it was just me and him without a bump or a little sister. He happily jumped up and gave me a cuddle.
We just went for a little walk around the block, sang some songs and I silently resented how big he suddenly is.

I said I love you so much and he looked at me, squeezed me with his suddenly strong arms and said “I love you soo much mummy”, he did a little sigh of relief and put his head on my chest. I had to stop myself from being a big emotional mess and crying. Where has my little baby gone!?

I looked through Facebook and found lots of photos of our baby wearing journey, it is by no means nearing it’s end but it has certainly slowed down. I will carry him forever in many ways but for now the most obvious one will be in his day of the dead tula, while he will still allow it.
