Halloween in NYC

We had such a festive Babywearing Halloween this year! We had a Boo at the Zoo gathering earlier in October. The Bronx Zoo welcomed costumed trick or treaters every weekend until Halloween. We started off that day with a ride on the Monorail through South East Asia.

If the children would stay seated for at least half of the ride we can call it a success. Most of the animals were resting in the shade since it was so sunny out. I managed to catch possibly the worst close up shot of one of the zoo’s two female elephants in her enclosure.

The kids had a blast, climbing stuff, running wild, screaming, it was a real zoo.

What’s a Babywearing meet up without Babywearing?

And what better way to end a long day of fun than to sit back, kick your feet up in mama’s face while you nurse.

But wait, there’s more!

The weekend before Halloween we hosted a Babywearing Halloween party in Central Park’s East Meadow. East Meadow has been one of our go to gathering spots in the city. It can be found in an easily accessible central location. It’s a fairly close distance to all major public transit routes making the trek back home not so bad after a long day. Moms and kiddies alike all came dressed in our spooky costumes, the Moms all contributed to the party in their own ways. There was a lot of candy, cupcakes, arts and crafts, and little squishy babies to pass around.

Carolina and I discovered the wonders of tutu making this year. Many many layers of glitter tulle later we emerged victorious. Adorable and easy to make, these tutus really made the girls and our pockets happy.

And yes, we baby wore…

 

Hold on, man. We don’t go anywhere with “scary,” “spooky,” “haunted,” or “forbidden” in the title. ~From Scooby-Doo

Finally! Halloween was here so Carolina and I met up in The Bronx for an afternoon of doorbells and overflowing candy buckets.

It was really a fun filled Halloween this year. We are so glad it’s over tho! LOLOL

Fostering Love at The American Museum of Natural History

Today we packed up our littles for a day at the American Museum of Natural History here in NYC. We spent the day learning about different cultures worldwide and the wildlife that once roamed our planet. The American Museum of Natural History is the home of many fascinating fossils. Check out Carolina and baby Gabey standing in front of a mama Barosaurus protecting her baby. She is the tallest free standing dinosaur mount in the world!

Carolina is wearing Fostering Love – Comfort by Smitten. This wrap was designed to bring awareness to all of the amazing foster families out there.  This wrap is a 60% cotton 40% mercerized cotton blend with a 230g/m² making it a medium weight beauty that rises to the challenge. We found the wrapping qualities to be supportive and airy on a hot 90 degree day in the city.

Apple Blossom Wovens Under the Sea Turquoise weft

Attached has been partnering with the lovely Lisa Carter of Apple Blossom Wovens to convert wrap scrap donations into various items to be sold. 100% of the proceeds acquired  from these items go towards funding World on My Shoulders. The mermaids are just so stinkin cute and I was sad to see them go but I feel that way about everything I create. These mermaids are extra special because of the name of the wrap scraps used to create them. The two on the outer ends were created from the remnants of a woven wrap called Under the Sea! How cool, right? The mermaid in the center was made with scrap from The Secret Garden woven wrap. When I think about mermaids I can’t help but wonder at the life they would presumably live under the waves. I could imagine gardens of seaweed and kelp, conch shells and anemone. I guess what I’m trying to say is that maybe mermaids under the sea have secret gardens of their own.

Carolina and I have had the pleasure of hosting Under the Sea turquoise weft this last week. We also happened to be celebrating little baby Gabriel’s first birthday. Of course we went shopping with all of our littles in tow. Halfway through our trip Carolina needed a break from the carrier she was wearing so I gave her Under the Sea and commenced with the spamming.

The name Under the Sea is such a true given name. Everything about this wrap screams summer, beach, seas, oceans, everything aquatic! It has all of these stunning blues and greens gradually rolling into one another very much like waves. This is a 100% cotton blend with 290 gsm but it also comes in tencel and linen options. We both found UTS to be very supportive, just enough grip to keep passes in place while it was also able glide easily to allow necessary adjustments while wearing. Under the Sea spoke to our mermaid loving hearts and we give it five stars. We made a little in action video you can check out here.

Princess for the day!

While celebrating our littlest Attached baby’s 1st birthday in The Bronx’s St Ann’s park, we had the pleasure of participating in The Social Club’s ‘Princess for the day’ event. The president of The Social Club, Bianca Rodriguez is pictured below with my two year old.

Bianca and her amazing team spent the day making lots of little girls feel like the princesses they are by handing out cute little goodie bags, snacks, and princess attire. The little princesses were met with smiles, tiaras, and Sophia the first tattoos and then were handed goodie bags filled with wands, and general princess themed goodies. On behalf of our community I want give these wonderful volunteers a huge thank you for coming out and showing that you care. We appreciate you!

 

You are a Princess. Destined to become a Queen. Your own wondrous story has already begun. YOUR Once upon a time is now.DSC_1330
