Dear Ergo Baby-
As our love affair gets closer to the end, faster then I’d like to admit, I would like to share my true feeling with you. I don’t know how I would have survived the first 4 years of motherhood without you. You have been a part of every step.
I purchased you when I was in the hormone filled first months of being a mama. My biggest regret is not having you there from day one. I had registered for another inexpensive baby carrier that I used a few times and my back hurt so bad I knew I needed something different. I read some blog posts about the best baby carries and I discovered you. You have been with me ever since!
When Shane was a baby I would vacuum my whole house with him. It was great to have him close to me and get things done. He loved it so much sometimes he would even fall asleep while I would vacuum.
Shane and I went on countless walks with the ergo baby. I feel I have a much closer bond with him because of it.
Chris wore Shane all over Disney World, even on the rides. We would walk by hundreds of strollers in the stroller parking and I would feel so great full for a place to keep our baby close.
Then when Shine was born and Shane was only 23 months old everything changed. Shane still has a lot of needs and I had a newborn to take care of. I do not know how I would have made it through the first few months without my ergo baby.
Shine was not the easiest baby. She wanted to be held all the time. Somehow I still had to make lunch for Shane and play blocks with him. Luckily I was able to keep Shine close and happy and still be Shane’s mama at the same time!
Now that Shine is getting bigger I use my baby carrier much less. But it still makes life with two kids much easier. I still use it at trips to the grocery store and on the sideline of soccer games.
I know soon my babies will be to big for me to carry. I will always be grateful for the days when I was able to keep my babies close while still having 2 free hands. Thank you ergo baby!
