Beautiful sunshine

I can't believe the weather here in southern Ontario. Today and yesterday have been beautiful and sunny, with highs well above 10 degrees Celsius. I love it.

I wanted to mention a couple of the great prizes I have won and received lately. I won an Evenflo Snugli Sway carrier at Mommy Goggles. This is a soft but structured sling type carrier for newborns (6-15 lbs). It's really more than a sling, but it is a one-shoulder carrier. The inside is a soft plush and the outside a more resilient fabric (nylon?). I love it and I'm sure it will be great when our little one finally arrives. It's got a really good price too, I think it's about $35 USD. This would make an awesome baby shower gift!

And today I received the organic Boba Carrier (by the makers of the Sleepy Wrap) that I won from Dirty Diaper Laundry. This is a front/side/back carrier for 1-4 year olds. It's even got foot straps for the comfort of bigger tots (over 2 years). I'm really impressed with the design and the quality of this carrier (and I love that it's made of organic cotton!). We chose the walnut, and it's a lovely deep brown. I had to get my husband involved on the colour choice as he's definitely going to take turns!

You'll never guess... today I also learned that I won an organic Sleepy Wrap at The Bragging Mommy! Can you believe my luck?! This one's for 0-1 year olds, and will fill in that gap between the Snugli Sway and the Boba. Unfortunately, The Bragging Mommy has recently switched over to US only giveaways - I'll definitely miss the giveaway fun there. But the site still is great for reviews, and if you are lucky enough to know someone in the States to be your 'postal drop', you can still enter.

A big thanks to both the blogs and sponsors! I know I have totally lucked out here. I don't think I'll be entering any more carrier giveaways for myself (though perhaps as Christmas presents for my 7 friends with babies!) - but I will still share them if I come across them :)
