no, i'm not talking about what's going on in mack's diaper, although they could frequently fall into that category.
this heavy load was actually mack himself, strapped to my chest (love the bjorn!), as we took him for his first hike last weekend. the kid has to be like 100lbs now, or at least that's what he felt like as i climbed a steep hill carrying him all the way. talk about a great workout! i think i'm going to have to make this a daily thing, since we have such great weather and i could use the exercise.
anyway, he slept the entire time, which was so sweet. i love holding him close to me, sweat and all. ;)
the good news of the day was that even with the shift he caused to my center of gravity, i didn't fall down a single time. i wound up having to slow myself down several times to ensure it didn't happen (clutziness is kinda my thing), but it worked and no one brought home a souvenir bruise or scrape. last thing we needed was a trip to the emergency room.
all in all, i would call the adventure a huge success, loved the family time it provided, and will definitely be going again. bring on the family bonding!
