The Muffin's room and a few sling questions answered

Baby Ellie's room is "boring" as her Daddy says, but she loves her ceiling fan!
The Muffin's room isn't quite complete, but it's more together than any other room in the house, except maybe the kitchen.

As for Joy's questions about my sling choices, I only have two and I happen to love them both. The first sling that I purchased when The Muffin was a wee little thing, was a New Native. It's white mesh, very cool and great for use in water. It's a pouch style sling and very quick and easy to put on. Of course, it's not adjustable and even though I ordered a medium it was a little big. I purchased it from a seller on e.bay and she gave me instructions on stitching it to make it smaller. I re sized it and it fit great. Right now I use this one the most.
When I was pregnant with Baby Ellie, I decided that it would be necessary to wear her so that I could also watch out for The Muffin when we go out to run errands. I purchased a Sweet Pea Ring Sling from e.bay again. This company has beautiful slings and they'll custom make one just for you. This is a ring sling, so it's fully adjustable and hopefully, Big Daddy will feel comfortable enough to try it out sometime soon. He prefers the front (Baby B.jorn type)carrier. I'm not as fond of it because it's not as healthy for the babies physical development when it's used for extended periods of time.

Stay tuned for more pictures of the new house, hopefully for a Wordless Wednesday post. We'll see how busy I am.

I LOVE Muffin's room!!! It is so beautiful!

Thanks for the sling information, too! I can't wait to find something that'll work for us, pending this baby even wants to be held all the time (Abigail didn't want to be held at all as a baby!).
