Update on the book!

First draft of my manuscript: DONE!

It was way harder than I thought it would be. Between the kids and I getting sick, and them being home for school holidays, it was a struggle to find time to write. But I did it! Now I'm waiting for my editor and project manager to read through it (hopefully it's not too much of a mess...), and we'll see where it goes from there!

One of the things I enjoyed most about writing the book has been finding out that there are like a gazillion new babywearing vendors popping up all the time. I haven't bought a carrier in ages, because quite honestly I have quite a stash already. This is despite the fact that back when I was buying slings and wraps, there really weren't that many brands to choose from. But goshdarnit, thanks to all these new vendors, I now have a wishlist a mile long and all that's missing is a baby to wear these carriers in (a baby is yeeeears away from happening, for anyone waiting to ask!):

And of course, the iconic Twilight Khadi by BebeSachi which Rita
so kindly let me borrow on my trip to Guangzhou!
Sigh...the more that I window shop and ogle these carriers, the more I find myself justifying the thought of getting myself a little baby somehow. Let's see how badly my partner panics when he reads this! Muahahaha! (I'm just kidding, hun...or AM I?).

Oh, and on a related note: the photoshoot has been pushed back because of the Chinese New Year holidays and stuff. I have more than enough models (thanks for all the submissions!), so now all I'm waiting for is the go-ahead from the awesome MPH folks and we'll set a date for the shoot. Exciting stuff!

We're also still actively looking for potential sponsors. If you want your company and your product to appear in the book, get in touch with me ASAP so we can get you in there!

The over-use of exclamation points in this post has not escaped me! I am not sorry!!

    2. Also, I'm pretty sure you did not mean it as a pun, but "wrapping up the first draft" was brilliant and I am sad that I did not think of it, haha.
