My Girl, My Girl 2.0

Slings and Arrows

Today I busted out the Pippalily sling I won from Mommy Knows last year.


It worked like a charm and freed up my hands to…well, to blog.  Jolie’s still nestled in the sling as I type this.  Sure, I could take this opportunity to fold some laundry or something, but I think we all know by now that I’m not that kind of girl.


I was glancing through some old photos on a forgotten memory card and came across this gem:


It speaks volumes, doesn’t it?  An angry Avelyn in the midst of a meltdown while her wearied mother tries to smile through the pain.  At least the mom’s a MILF.


  • Jolie looks so cozy in her sling, must be nice to be packed around all day, eat when you want, sleep when you want….why is it we grow up?

  • Beautiful pictures! Love the sling!

  • Oh, that last one? PRICELESS.

  • LOVING that last one! The photos of Jolie in the sling make me want to go back to sleep :)

  • You look amazing! Your hair seems to be growing at an astronomical rate. Either that, or you haven’t posted a picture of yourself in a while.

    Thanks for letting us see a new photo of your new little gem!

  • “but I think we all know by now that I’m not that kind of girl”

    I laughed out loud at this line. As in, totally LOLed. I’m so glad she enjoys the sling. It’s a whole new world when your hands are free.

  • You look so fantastic!!!
    And seriously, your girls?
    Cute cute cute!

  • Jolie looks like an angel. And you…total MILF.

  • That is a lovely sling, The fabric –ooooohhhhhhh! I’m totally a babywearin’ mama. I hope you can enjoy the benefits of wearing your wee babe.

  • You are hilarious. Also: that sling is LOVELY. Do you think it would be weird if I bought a sling just to hoist Iggy around in it? I think it could be very good mother pug bonding. Maybe if he were sedated.

  • LOL!!!

  • Oh my gosh, you look so great! Here is hoping that is 8 weeks I can pull myself together enough to actually accessories and outfit.

    Love the sling. I got a Hotsling this time around and can’t wait to test it out.

  • Did you just call yourself a MILF????? K, you’re hilarious!!

  • Hahaha!!! You look great, as does Jolie! Love the sling!

  • that sling is so cute, i definitely want one ..when i have kids, i mean. none yet though!

    jolie is beautiful & so are you! :)

    oh and that picture of you & avelyn is hilariously cute. at least YOU look happy!

  • I’m so glad you like it. Looks fab on you both. Jolie is perfect … just like Avelyn.

  • Whew! I rarely read comments and barely post them…after reading some of these comments I don’t feel so bad for being a non mom who reads mom blogs : )

  • jeez…you have a bitty baby and yet you look incredible. no visible under-eye baggage, perfect hair, and you even managed to accessorize! (the necklace, i mean, though the baby is a nice accessory too). not fair.

  • I love your hair – wow, it’s really grown! Postpartumn hair loss hitting yet? My drains are clogged…

  • Oh my gosh, I can’t wait to wear my baby on another part of my body that isn’t my stretched out belly.
