Catching Up.....Baby Wearing {Big Bear Photographer, newborn, child, family, wedding}

For those who don't know I'll give a little history.
A few years ago when we got our adoption placement with our daughter Ava, my friend Summer told me all about a special thing called babywearing. At the time I have to admit that I thought she was perhaps a little, errr...over zealous? She told me about a website called and so I checked it out and before long I was learning about the benefits of babywearing and wanted to give it a try. We had gotten Ava when she was 7months old so when I learned of the bonding value as well as the developmental value I was sold. I immediately starting buying and trying out different kinds of carriers. I found a very talented maker in Norway so I decided to write her and order something custom and special. I was so sad to learn that she wasn't selling them to the US yet. But somehow amidst our conversations back and forth, and in my journey to create bonding with my new baby daughter I was also bonding with a special girl all the way across the world in Norway. I don't know exactly how it happened but I knew that every time my inbox showed a letter from her I smiled from ear to ear and my heart smiled even bigger. We were just meant to be friends I think. Over the course of our friendship in the last couple of years we have sent eachother fun packages and she has made a few custom carriers for me. Ava is so small and so my toddler sizes were just a bit big to wear and so recently I asked if she would make me one last baby sized carrier. So a few days ago I tore into my package from Norway and almost fainted when I saw THREE new baby sized carriers. I couldn't believe that she took all that time and talent to send me all that love contained in one little box. I am overwhelmed by her friendship constantly and can't wait until the day when I fly out to her beautiful country and knock on her door. Thank you Carina! I love you!!
