DIY baby wrap

i made a baby wrap:

it really works.

here's the basic instructions for making your own. i didn't use fancy fabric, though. i just used some muslin i had lying around to make patterns with. people pay hundreds of dollars for these things. don't. all you have to do is hem a parallelogram.

first minutes

here is a video of walter's first few minutes of life. (the stuff on his eyes is an ointment required by new york state.) (future dads, don't tell moms who haven't seen their babies yet that their babies look like yoda without elaborating immediately.)

just a driveby to say that walter paul radford and i are home from the hospital and doing great.

i went in for my OB appointment on tuesday and was told to walk over to the hospital to be induced that evening because walter might be 9 pounds, and they, all of a sudden, "never allow GD moms to go past their due date", even though they had said the opposite the whole time leading up to this. anyway, they tried for a while but i developed severe preeclampsia and had to have a c section. it was not ideal, but it did not spoil all the fun. i will write the full birth story as soon as i can. right now i'm in survival mode trying to breastfeed and get enough sleep. thank god mr V is being a champ dad so far. plus, my blood pressure is still crazy high, so i also have to try to do the absolute minimum moving around. tough when i never really got done setting up the apartment.

oh, and walter ended up weighing only 6 pounds 11 ounces.
