Yesterday, Sarah and I were in Reagan’s closet when she spied the Ergo.
She asked me what it was, so I put it on to show her and then explained that I was going to use it in China to carry Reagan around.
I have never carried any of my children pouch style…. with both Nick and Sarah, I just used a stroller when we went places that would require us to carry them for long periods of time.
Some people prefer a stroller to a baby carrier and vice versa.
For bonding and attachment purposes, I am going the “pouch” route with Reagan.
At this point, I don’t have plans to take a stroller along…… and if by chance she does not like the Ergo, I have heard you can pick up strollers in China for the bargain price of $10-$15…..so that is what I will do.
She has been very inquisitive the last two weeks and has started to ask a lot of questions about Reagan. I think it is good and I believe she is getting anxious…. just like the rest of us. She continues to ask me almost daily…..”Are you going to China today”
Soon Sarah……very soon:)
So…. the Ergo is one of the very first things I am able to cross off the packing list. I still have a long list of things I need to pick up yet.
For those that have made this trip before…… what are the one or two things that you could not have lived without when you were in China? I would love to know.
I am just thankful that it will not be too cold when we go….. should make packing a little eassier. Ummm… at least I hope. I am one of those people who will go away for two days and I still need a supersized suitcase.
It will be interesting to see if I can scale back…. Pat is already placing bets.
Next thing on my list might need to be those spacesaver bags:)
