    My one year old just started walking and was down playing at play shoppe one day. Someone came up to me and mentioned that she was surpised to see how big my daughter’s gotten. She said that it was hard to tell how big she was because she was usually in the sling or at the breast. I just had to grin.

    To me natural parenting is doing what comes naturally. I breastfeed, have co-slept, use my sling everyday, we try to eat REAL food (not processed, I grow a garden, buy organic and local when I can, we clean naturally, and are creating a waldorf home.

    These are beautiful moments captured. My Wordless Wednesday reflects the joy I see while my 4 year old plays and explores nature.
