We got this fancy swing for Cheetah at the garage sale next door when the kids killed our little travel one. It was so close to the ground they just couldn't resist swinging in it, stripping the motor. This little beauty is much more fancy. It goes multiple directions, plays music, heart sounds, my ipod, and is the perfect place to catch a meal up safely away from prying older sisters.

snuglie and ended up with a maya wrap. With the girls I moved to a peanut sling for when they were smaller and then a mei tai for when they got older. I loved both of them and still have them, but with my last pregnancy my friend Liz had a moby like wrap that was so adorable and comfortable looking I wanted one just like it. Unfortunately I could never find one similar and so I decided to make my own using instructions from here. I went to all the fabric stores in town but ended up buying my 100% cotton jersey at Hobby Lobby using a 40% off coupon. I got six yard that ended up costing $25. I then picked up a yard of the flower pattern, once again 100% cotton jersey for about $4 at Hobby Lobby. I brought my white fabric home and because it was 60 inches across decided to make three wraps instead of two. I cut the fabric into three long strips. I then cut out three rectangles of the flower pattern. The first wrap I did for a girl at mops. I actually hemmed down the edges of the flower jersey before sewing it onto the middle of my long rectangle. It was a huge pain...huge! I was cursing not having a surger. Then I decided why bother. The edges aren't going to fray and hemming it under doesn't make it looking any better. So when I made mine I actually just pinned it down and then went around the edges using black thread and my flower petal stitch. It ended up looking pretty darn cool. So much so that Dr J thought I'd bought it. Just a tiny bit of work and I ended up with three wraps, $10 a piece.
