#MLBMobyWrap ~ Giveaway

As promised, today Friday the 13th and its my Blog's birthday! Four years ago I got on to the internet and started to type away.

My life with wearing wraps started with my eldest daughter, as one usually does right? However the first couple of attempts were problematic. They didn't fit well or my eldest became too heavy, as baby's do.

Skipping the baby carrier, whether it be wrap or pack of some type, was something I thought I could do. So on my first visit with my eldest to AT&T Park, home of the San Francisco Giants, was with me, my daughter and the stroller, as you can see she wanted out and I had to hold her the rest of the tour, probably cut short because of me and her.

The second time I visited, my husband came and I thought I would be smart. Bring the Baby Bjorn, I thought. As you can see my husband nor the Bjorn helped with my eldest's feelings of being miserable. I wished there was another option.


Two years and some months later my youngest was born and a few months after that Moby Wraps came out with their MLB line. I was over the moon excited to see the first few teams they had was the SF Giants! They had both the "Orange" (really Sienna) and Black, so I bought both! 
much better with the Moby!
So decided to give you my readers a chance to win one yourself! Here are the current teams, hopefully your home team or favorite team is represented. I know one team I would love to see (maybe have) is the Minnesota Twins (click here for my reason)!

Atlanta Braves (Navy)Arizona Diamondbacks (White)Boston Red Sox (Red)Chicago Cubs (Gray)Chicago White Sox (Gray)
Cincinnati Reds (Red)Detroit Tigers (Navy)LA Dodgers (Gray)LA Dodgers (White)New York Mets (Gray)

Take me home to the ball game #MLBMobyWrap

In October of 1987 I was 8 years old, a girl and never had a baseball bone in my body. My step dad spent his Saturday in the living-room glued to the afternoon TV. I wandered in, sat down and what I did not realize a program that would change my life. 


The program was the 1987 World Series. The Minnesota Twins vs the St. Louis Cardinals. I watched my step dad arguing with the TV and I wondered why. Then questions started.


Why are there four balls to three strikes? Why is it called a home run? Why after three outs do they changed sides? How many people are there on a team? Who, What, Where, Why, When and How. My step dad tried to keep up with the questions. With each change in the game there were new questions. The games I watched with him started a bond that he thought would never come to be with me. 


The Twins won the World Series and became my #1 team for that year. I didn't know about American Leagues or National Leagues, I didn't know much about the sport of Baseball, rankings, play-offs, even about the A's or the San Francisco Giants; however I knew that I bonded my step dad, I loved this new sport and life would never be the same after that fall of 1987.

For my Blog Birthday - An MLB Moby Wrap! - UPDATED


San Francisco Giants Black (Mobywrap.com)
I have been thinking about what to give readers for my blog birthday and now I know what to give one lucky reader. An MLB Moby Wrap of their chosen team!

This fits perfectly with my Blog Anniversary because the Major League Baseball All Star Break happens to be the same week!

***Details - Moby Wrap WILL BE sponsoring this giveaway!! Though Major League Baseball will not be sponsoring this giveaway!***

I am doing this because I love two things - BASEBALL and WRAPS!

I will be posting a few stories about my past visits baby wearing at AT&T Park with my oldest Bella and how my experience has changed with my youngest Grace.

Each post will have something to do with Baseball and Wraps whether it be the Moby Wrap or other ones I have used in the past. I will be placing a key word in each post and it will be used in the giveaway as well.

During the week of the All Star Break, July 9-13, I will post my final "Wrap" up posts for my love of Baseball and baby wearing. On my Blog "birthday" Friday, July 13, 2012; I will be posting a Rafflecoptter giveaway for that weekend for one of the awesome MLB wrap of your choice!

Thank you to the fine people at Moby Wrap for giving one away for this Blog-a-bration! And I have worn both of the SF Giants Wraps and just love them!

FAQs -
  1.  What if I don't live in the USA? Its fine! Just make sure you are in an area where Moby can ship to!
  2. What if I don't like baseball? WHAT?? This is also fine, if you love the Moby Wrap show your city pride, every one will think you love baseball!
  3. What if I win, however I have a friend that I won it for? Fine by me, when you get the winning email just let me know a name and address to ship the wrap to!
  4. What if I won and they don't have my favorite team? That is an issue! Right now Moby Wrap has 8 teams on the website. I hope that by the time the All Star Break Week comes around they will have more to chose from. If not, you can always go with the MLB team that is closest to your city. 
  5. Are you, Amanda going to get another MLB Wrap or another item for blogging about this giveaway and Moby Wrap? I am not nor will not receive any prize other than the joy of sending one lucky person their own MLB Moby Wrap. Its my present to you!
