We all look down at our babies from time to time and think, "man, that's nice. I wish some one would carry me."
 
And sometimes adults DO get carried:

One of my friends in my mom's group posted this recently:

And who wouldn't like to be snuggled and warm, carried, and comforted? In an enviable position, sitting pretty in "the catbird seat."

Not going to lie, until recently, I didn't know what this term "the catbird seat" meant (read more here). What stuck with me is that it's the enviable position, the better place to be.
I immediately thought... THE BABY! She's in the catbird seat! All kissable, snuggly, and with food supply a-ready.

But... that's not true.
It's me.
I feel her heart beating against mine. I catch her eye as she's learning something new. I feel her hand reach over my back to be part of what I am doing. I smell her milk-breath with every sleepy sigh. I brush the hair out of her angelic little face.
Envy. Me.
For every time I wear her, I realize that this time will far too quickly be over and gone. Our baby wearing days will be a distant memory before I am ready... but not yet. Currently, I'm sitting pretty in the catbird seat... and the view is glorious.
