She made me buy it...

While on a trip to our local natural baby care store, Eliza and I tried out the Kangaroo Korner Pouch Sling.

As soon as I put her in it, she was all like: "Mom, you MUST buy this for me." And then I was like: "Eliza, it's kind of pricey, and we already have two other carriers for you", to which she said: "Pshaw, Mom, each carrier has a different use, don't you know? THIS one is perfect for quick in-and-outs, and the fleece will keep me super warm in this crazy-ass cold weather you make me live in." So I said "Honey, you make some excellent points!"

Okay, so some of that might have been embellished for the sake of dramatic effect...

Here's what actually happened: she looked up at me and I melted into a puddle of "okayhoneywhateveryouwant!"

I'm screwed (but isn't my new sling great?? :)

Hahaha, I always wondered how this happened to parents! I never knew about the voices...

It is pretty cute, though :D

That is such a cute picture! I absolutely love that carrier! Love your 'conversation' too!

Love it!! Wish I could get another sling. The Ktan is nice (and I really do love it) but sometimes B seems a little too squished! Plus it takes a little time to get on. This looks so easy!

LOL!!! Love the picture!

Alyssa said...

Haha! How cute (and the carrier looks comfy). Does she have Daddy wrapped around her finger yet? :D

Heh, sounds a lot like my experience. The first time I tried one on, Patrick was asleep in it in under 5 minutes. Bah, you're tempting me to go buy one! What size did you get? (Did you get one Andy can use too?)

The spoiling has begun. Next thing you know it will be a puppy, then a car and then a tattoo of two cherries on her bum...just lettin' you know :)

that sling is so cute. What Natural Store did you get it at? I am curious to go take a look at the store.

And she keeps getting cuter every day :)
