Out and About

We've been using stretchy cloth chest-carry wraps to schlepp the baby around town, whether on foot or by public transit.

A couple of times now I've tried sketching the view of the baby, snug in the carrier an layers of winter clothes, napping against my chest.

By contrast, when she's out of the carrier and wiggling around, it can be a lot harder to sketch her! I attempted this doodle with my non-dominant hand, while the baby was sporadically kicking that arm as she nursed, no less--adorable chaos.


  1. Congratulations on the new baby - and I'm sorry I'm just now catching up with your posts since then. It's going to be a treat to watch these preliminary sketches become a watercolor of a moment you're going to want to capture and cherish.

  2. What fun to see your baby sketches--she will love seeing these when she gets older!
