Oh how we love our Ergo! I'm thinking a trip to the washing machine is needed for this week, but I'm petrified it will lose some of it's "magic."Claire spends hours each day happily "up up Mommy's back" which is great since I have my hands free to do other things (like blog, wink wink). On the other hand, she's been cutting her teeth on the straps and now they seem to be discoloring a bit. Ewww...here we come washing machine.
