Cross-Country Skiing With Baby

Lil Community: Praise For a New Dad

No need to stay indoors with baby just because it's Winter! Just ask user Elka Karl, who has nothing but good things to say about her brother, a new dad and avid cross-country skiier. Check out how he brought his lil cutie along for the ride!

Okay, so I'm going to get sappy here, but my brother is a new dad and is kicking serious butt. One of the many things that both my husband and I and my brother and his wife agreed about when we had our babies (the cousins are five months apart) was that we wanted to maintain as much of our pre-baby lives as possible. For me and my husband, that meant taking our little one on trips, including backpacking trips (he went for the first time this Summer and rocked it), and for my brother and his wife, that meant going on trips and skiing.

My brother was a nationally ranked junior olympics cross country skiier, and has since gone on to complete the Birkie in the top tier of finishers for many years in a row. Since becoming Daddy to Soren, he's put Soren in a Moby (and zips his jacket up over him) to go cross country skiing, and also put a Burley on skis to pull Soren for longer trips.

Seriously cute! We're taking Uli snowshoeing the next time we're in Tahoe, but my brother is inspiring me to also take Uli cross country skiing as well . . .
