  1. I'm looking forward to see the toddler carries! I loved wearing my toddlers and even preschoolers.

  2. Love Throwback Thursday pics and Toddler Tuesday.

  3. The photos all week are going to be fun. I've got some ideas for Monday. ;)

  4. I am looking forward to all the pics but can't wait for some stash shots on wed.

  5. I can not wait to check out all the different carriers

  6. Love your IBW facebook/blog days! I will look for a hilarious pic to share tomorrow of our very first attempt with a moby wrap when my son was 2 weeks old. Hello to all the Slingers, I'd come visit at the park playdate if I was still local!
