The Daddy is Ready

We're just testing out all the new baby gear for the China trip. The Daddy looks ready to me so send those TA's (travel approval) ASAP!

1). Northface Coat for Beijing...packs light and is perfect for touring the Great Wall in winter. brrrrrrr!
2). Diaper bag backpack from One Step Ahead...okay, I'm officially obsessed with this backpack. It has more pockets for organizing than a semi-OCD mama and daddy could ever dream of wanting!

3). Baby Carrier from Ergo Baby...carries baby comfortably in three positions -- back, front and hip.

ARE WE THERE YET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi, I have been to your site before but I saw you commented on your "obsession" with Ergo's and pinefores. I share your obsession and am fully obsessed. I am wondering if you have your TA yet? I cant belive how young your little one is. She is probably one of the youngest babies I have seen next to my Mia. MIa was 5 months 5 days old at referral and was only 6 months old on Gotcha. It was so amazing to get her so young and we have had hardly any bonding issues (actually none that I can think of). It is pretty cool and rare to get a baby as young as our little ones! Anyway, if you have any questions, please feel free to email me at anytime I can share with you what a 6 month old is like in CHina since most people deal with more like a year old. Anyway, let me know when you travel!!

Wow! Daddy looks like a real natural! I am also every excited for both of you!

Dave & Kris said...

He sure is! Let me know how you like the Ergo carrier once you get a test run. I've been debating between Ergo and Walking Rock Farms (and a third possibility).

Dave and I look forward to following your adventures through the blog (travel to China, parenthood).

Thanks for all your good wishes, we're keeping the hopeful home fires burning.

Hoping for a speedy TA...Kris

We are huge fans of One Step Ahead! I use their diaper bag as well (with the washable inserts) and it's wonderful!!! You may wnat to get some of their extenders too for onesies - which help make them last longer!

How exciting! We loved the Ergo carrier. So did Lilly! We were in China in July. I still use it from time to time. Lilly is 16 months now.
