Sunbeam, Star

Be sure to check out the brand new Maya Wrap website (especially the 6th picture in the slide show on the front page). A while back I wrote an entry about our day at the photo shoot and here you will see Miss Grace in "action." There is another picture of her in the photo section with her "pretend mommy and brother." I should mention that Cheryl Muhr, NC photographer took the picture I'm attaching (though you can probably tell that from the copyright! :) and all of the photos on the website. As you'll see on the site, she does excellent work!

On the subject of maya wraps, while babywearing seems to be a hot new trend among celebrities and regular mommies alike, there really are some great benefits to both baby and mommy/daddy other than the "style factor." Babies who are carried cry less on average than those who are not, being carried creates the ideal environment for learning, emotional development and physical development. If you've carried a baby around with and without some type of carrier, you can vouch for the fact that a good carrier can really help ease the strain on your back! So, if you've got a baby or toddler, give babywearing a whirl!
