We took another walk today. I am very proud to say that I did much better. You would all be really proud. I even pushed the stroller a little faster. Who knows what tomorrow will bring?

I have always wanted to be a "baby wearing kind of mama". You know carrying a baby in a sling or something similar. While pregnant I researched and looked around for the best way to "wear a baby" and what to use. For those interested there are like a zillion different sling type things to use and about a million different ways to "wear your baby". Total overload. I found two slings that I really, really liked. They weren't slings that I found on my own however. I actually found both slings by reading other mommy blogs. Anywho, I ordered one and Kaky gave me the other for Christmas - love them both!. I am still trying to learn how to use them and how to get a baby with wires and monitors to fit into it, but I think I am getting the hang of it. Being oxygen free has been a huge help. Today I attached one of the slings, inserted Morgan Kate who immediately fell asleep and we were able to take a walk around the backyard (not before taking a photo of myself). The sunshine sure was nice! 

In the last week or so Miss Morgan Kate has found her fingers. It is so darn cute to see and hear. Today I was able to catch a photo of her in action. Goodness, I could eat her up!
