Today was a bit of a wonderful experiment. We bought a moby (and was given a moby), but until now we've only tried it on Griff the once. Having a c-section left my abdomen quite sore and today I decided it was time to give the moby a proper try.

It has been awesome! We each had a turn, I had Oscar in the Kangaroo hold and Griff had him in the Hug Hold. Oscar slept beautifully each time. AND we were able to get so much done today! Usually as soon as you put Oz down for a nap he wakes himself up after 10-15 minutes. In the Moby he just snoozed. I was able to do laundry, wash bottles and pumping equipment and tidy the living room a bit, organize his closet and start packing for our trip to the States next week.. This was all done very SLOWLY, but it was done, without any interruptions or crying. For Griff, I think it allows for some very special bonding time.

We are so impressed with how today went, I hope it hasn't been a fluke. I am really hoping he keeps enjoying the Moby, I think it will be great for when we want to take Oz for walks on the beach in 2 weeks.

In other news, I was able to finally get in the bath with Oz. I was so excited and no sooner did we get in and settled he took a GIANT poo all over me. *sighs* Griff thought it was hilarious and I just looked at my Little Man and told him he was the only person in the whole world I would let poo on me. So it was a bit of a task emptying the tub, showering off and then refilling the tub. But 2nd time settled and it was fantastic. Bathing with Oz is so so so much fun because he loves the water so much. I can't wait to get him in the pool!

(I know his neck looks weird in that picture but he LOVES to throw his head back when sleeping. He breathes just fine, so I'm figuring that's okay? It's how his Aunt Mimi likes to sleep...)
