This was my first back carry with Henry in the Ergo. He was very patient with the pulling of the tomatoes and zinnias and he eventually fell asleep.
Saturday was the most time I had spent in the garden since the pregnant days of spring. In May, I was observing new shoots and thinking about my baby's arrival. I spent a lot of time then worrying about how I'd stay on top of the weeding. On Saturday he was on my back and I was trimming or yanking out the whole overgrown plant and thinking about how much growth I'd missed in the garden because I was focused on Henry. It is wild how fast the time passes. Gardening and paying attention to the seasons helps me to stay more present, but, sometimes, just barely.
