Teague's First Swim!

We met up with some friends and took the boys swimming at West Edmonton Mall last week. It was Teague's first time "swimming", and my first time using the watersling I bought right before he was born. It was lots of fun!
And here are some fun pictures from the rest of the week....

I love that sling. I saw your post on Dreena's blog and came to check out yours and wouldn't you know we're practically neighbors! I live in Red Deer. I've been looking to buy ring sling (just had my baby in August) I was wondering where you got yours? Also that waterproof one. I think I'm addicted to baby carriers :)

Oooh....Red Deer! I don't think I've actually ever been to Red Deer (because stopping at Gasoline Alley just doesn't count, haha.). From what I've seen, it sure is getting big!
The water sling is a Hotsling, and I ordered mine from here: http://tadpoles.ca/index.cfm?Action=ViewCategory&Category=28. It's an Edmonton-based online shop ru by two moms. (Hotslings are great, btw. I can still wear my oldest son (26 mths) in one)
And I got my ring sling from a friend who makes them and sells them at a store in Ed. called Birth Source. But I have been dreaming about this one for months: http://tadpoles.ca/index.cfm?action=ViewDetails&ItemID=849&Category=145
And, to feed your addiction... have you ever tried an Ergo? They are the best for carrying bigger babies. :)

Okay, those links didn't work... so just search around on tadpoles.ca. :)

Thanks so much! I'll go looking now. And yes Gasoline Alley doesn't count =P I just moved here last year from Montreal so I can't really say what it was like before I came here. But I think everyone says it's growing. Compared to where I'm from though, it's very small! lol
I haven't tried the Ergo, I'll have to put that on my list of carriers to buy.

The sling is really neat Julie, but we love the little guy in the sling and the sling-holder! Wow is he changing!
