wear, oh wear have my babies gone?

With her hair curled tight...



























and his smile so bright.

Wear, oh wear can they be?















Oh how I love my new carriers!

My Kozy Carrier from www.Kozycarrier.com is roomy, beautiful, easy to use, and takes up very little space in my diaper bag. It will hold my 'babies' until they are 40-45 pounds.

My ToddlerHawk (by BabyHawk.com) is reversible. BrotherBear says this one is just his size and I have to agree. At 37.5 pounds, he fits the best on my back in this one.









Both are Mei Tai's known as ABC's (Asian Baby Carriers). Children can be worn on the front, back, or hip. Mine were purchased off of Ebay for half of what they would have cost new. Technically, since the woman
I bought them from gave me the second one for free, I got them for a quarter of what they would have cost new. If you are interested in purchasing a used carrier like these I was able to search Craigslist - city by city, across the country until I found two and then asked the seller if they would be willing to mail me the carrier. Both people I contacted were willing to work with me, but it turned out the Ebay seller had the larger ToddlerHawk that fits my kids better so I went with her. Out of the kindness of her heart she included the Kozy Carrier for free.

Tonight we're having a candlelight ski event at the park. I'm hopeful that I will get a chance take at least one of the kids around the trail on my back. If not, there will be hayrides, S'mores, and hot apple cider to keep us busy.

Have a great weekend everyone!

  1. Those carriers look GREAT!! I wish I had one because I would love to still be able to carry Cameron. The one carrier that I have which doesn't look as bright and beautiful as yours is definitely too small for him now.

    Looks like your kids enjoy it!!

  3. I've really been looking into these now - as I KNOW I'll need one to have my hands free for the other two. I saw a pattern (my MIL is a master seamstress) at Walmart but it had buckles...and I don't think I want buckles. I'm going to research these like you said though - don't you just love the internet sometimes?! thanks!

  4. I love the Toddler Hawk, how do you know that the one you have is a toddler hawk? Does it say toddler hawk on the label? I am asking b/c I have what I think is a baby hawk but m/b it's a toddler hawk
