Baby Wearing, Thrifting, and Adorable Baby Moccasins

I finally finished editing my blog. I was getting sick of the outdated photo on my sidebar along with a few other things. It was definitely time for a change. I honestly didn't get around to doing any of it until the wee hours of last night. I didn't even have an idea of what I was going to do and while I was editing these pictures for today's post my statement necklace inspired me.

These pictures were taken about the time I started to notice Zaden was teething. He was extra fussy and would only be happy nursing, being held, or in our carrier. I seriously don't know how other mamas get things done around the house without one of these. I was fortunate enough to find one secondhand on KSL Classifieds for only $30 when I was in my third trimester. I really want to buy another one though, preferably a silk Sakura Bloom Sling , I've only heard good things about them from a few of my virtual mama friends. Put simply, baby wearing is addicting and I want ALL. THE. SLINGS. (;

I thrifted this skirt on our vacation and absolutely love it. I own a moss green skirt similar to this but it's currently a bit too small and not near as comfortable. I was happy to find this little gem for $3 to replace it in the meantime. Also, a couple of months ago I decided to splurge and buy Zaden some adorable handmade moccasins from Feather and Filly. I love small business' and the mama behind Feather and Filly is an absolute doll. She is always more than willing to answer customers questions, is a great business woman, and does all of the work by hand! I can't imagine sewing hours and hours on end, this lady has got skills (; Not only are her prices affordable but her moccasins stay on Zaden's feet, which to be honest is a miracle.
