Planning Number Two

24 months ago today I got pregnant. Yes, we know the date, the time and the exact rock show we went to that made the baby making happen. When we got our first positive pregnancy test, I immediately took three more. I was sick as a dog, but despite all the signs of being pregnant, […]

Still breastfeeding

Still breastfeeding

The twins are 16 months old. I never dreamed we would make it this far. My plan was to wean by 14 months. Instead I night weaned by 14 months and still nurse during the day. I don’t hate it. I don’t resent them. I love our quiet moments of reconnect. A normal day for […]

I Love. I Admire. I Know.

It’s been a long time since I have just wrote a blog about the things that I absolutely love and adore, and what I hope will be in store for 2013. I love my son. I know, pretty stinking obvious, but he captures my heart more and more every day. I am in awe of […]

I’m blessed to have good neighbors. Our neighbors from the trailer park are wonderful. Chris and Rex are super sweet. Chris has watched the twins so Jed and I could go on occasional dates or so I could go to doula training. They take care of our chickens and our dog when we are gone […]
