Giveaway!!

My day got better, thank you. My husband has a rather calming effect on me, Ibuprofen taken with copious amounts of caffeine will cure just about any headache (see my subtitle), and we took Zeke to the park after dinner so that Josh could see him on the slides and an hour watching my boys play finished off my very up and down day at a rather up.

So I feel refreshed and ready to present my LAST babywearing giveaway. And I might have saved the best for last too because this month I'm giving away a Mei-Tai from Miannaleesa over at Etsy.com. This one, in fact (although try to ignore the fact that I look a little scary and focus on the cuteness of the carrier...or of the baby):

Don't you just LOVE Etsy? And dont you just LOVE babywearing? And dont you just love Mei Tai's? Zeke and I do!!

My Mei-Tai was handmade for me by a very talented friend and I just adore it. Dont get me wrong. I love my ring slings and loved the pouch sling I gave away as well. They are quick and easy and small enough to stuff in my bag. And Mei Tai's are a little bulkier and yes have a little more of a learning curve to them, there is tying involved in putting it on. BUT they also use BOTH shoulders. And when you have a 20+ pound chunky monkey like me that is a wonderful thing. I can wear Zeke in our Mei Tai for hours without a backache. And when he is a little bigger I can flip it around to use as a back carrier as well.

So if you plan on babywearing for much longer then the infant months then I would definitly reccomend a Mei Tai carrier. And if you dont have a wonderful and talented freind to handmake you one, well then you can try to win one here!

So ready to win? You have until May 10th and you know the drill:

You get your first entry for leaving a comment on THIS post saying you want the carrier.

And you can get more (bonus) entries for any of the following:
-ONE entry for being a follower on my blog.
-And a whopping FOUR more for spreading the word and linking to this contest on your own blog.

6 chances to win this month. Good luck.

I am so glad that your day is going better! Everything will work itself out! No way will you not end up living closer to me. Zeke and Preston are destined to be best buddies! And I can't explain it but I really like the picture above of you and Zeke!

While I'm here I guess I should enter your contest! And I do follow you!

I'm glad your day got better! It doesn't take much sometimes... for me, it's a square of dark chocolate at about 3 in the afternoon, when I'm starting to lose it. :) It may come earlier tomorrow since I'm up from nursing Gideon at 2 in the morning.

I would love this carrier- I've always been a fan of Mei Tais- I love how they look, yet I've never had one! Thanks! (I'm a follower, too!)

My baby is due in a couple months, so this would be great to have waiting for me to use when he is born!

Glad to hear your head ache is gone.
I can certainly use a carrier. With a child that has to be carried almost 20 hrs out of each day my back is killing me. He gets bigger each day and turning 14 months in two weeks.
thanks for the giveaway
