After four kids, ten moves and nearly two decades, we are still blissfully in love (most of the time) and I found myself back in the state I was born and raised in. It has definitely been a journey. In fact, on our 18th anniversary we pulled the last of our stuff up over the pass and into Montana, leaving our surprise love, Idaho, behind. But Montana is a great place. The last best place according to some. And we fully intend to explore as much of it as we can! Join us on our continued adventure through life, love and other stuff that comes with it.

Babywearing is beautiful!

And babywearing is beautiful!

Meet my brother-in-law.  He's my husband's baby brother.

What you can't see is that he's about 6'4" and he was a starting tight end on his college football team.  A tough guy, but a real softie.  (And when I met him about 16 years ago, I was taller than he was.  Nobody believes me!)

He is great with our kids. Yesterday he was in the front yard teaching Grace how to do a running catch.  I remember handing Grace to him when she was first born.  He was a little intimidated. 

But yesterday (5 nieces and nephews later--on our side anyway) he was holding Carsten and I simply could not resist wrapping them up. 

He thought it was pretty cool.  And Carsten did not complain even a teeny tiny bit.  I believe I have one more convert--more likely two counting his little wife. 

How are you celebrating International Babywearing Week??
