Ribbit Ribbit

There has been quite a lot of frog talk these days on Rachael's website. I couldn't help but do a little reading on the myths of our green friends.

As you can imagine, the myths run the gamut, but the one I thought was most appropriate was the one that said that frogs represent fluidity, cleansing and tears.

So, Rachael, just short of an Egyptian plague, I wish you, Brien and Lily many many many frogs to cleanse your hearts and lullaby you to sleep each night.

I love the symbolism! I can't stop thinking about Hannah!

And regarding your mei tai question, as long as the baby's head is supported (if the back of the mei tai goes high enough) then it is just find for a newborn in a mei tai. It's not as convenient to put on while holding an infant vs. a ring sling, but mei tais are my favorite and are a wonderful way to carry baby!
