Sadly, the peaches were decidedly sub-par – hard and not very sweet.
Disappointment major, especially since we’ve successfully visited this
same orchard before. Alas, we just had to fill our bags with tomatoes
and “nee-nee” (zucchini) and flowers instead.
Also, I know I’ve mentioned before how much I love baby carriers, but I seriously do. When we went to Africa when Nat was about 4 months old, he pretty much lived in the Moby Wrap. It was comfortable and he was a lightweight (still is…) so it was great for traipsing around and having an extra blanket and being able to nurse completely discreetly even while walking the streets of Madrid or on safari.
Moby wasn’t quite as great. It’s lovely for when babies are really
small and want to snuggle in close and sleep, but not so much for active
toddlers. We’d had a Snugli in
Nat’s first weeks of life (before I knew about some of the positioning
risks) and when he got bigger, it was hugely uncomfortable when I wore
it for more than 15 minutes. So we looked into and purchased an Ergo, which I love dearly. I (and Dan) wore it all around Africa and Nat contentedly rode around and slept on my back. It was so fantastic for having my hands free and saving the stroller space for carrying our stuff (it is so so much easier to carry a 20-pound toddler on your back in the Ergo than it is a 20-pound backpack).
