Hi everyone! I'm so excited about these new babies and still happy one of them isn't my own quite yet! I am thrilled to live vicariously though you all for a few more months!
Raina, 2 11lbers!? Wow! I love/hate fast births like that. I had a run of 4 births I missed in a row (all for reasons that weren't my fault) and it was super frustrating! I agree with Sarah Lynne, I wish you lived closer because I would love to have you be my midwife for my next birth!!
Sarah Lynne, I don't know that being upset about your morning is extreme at all, I'd be super pissed/frustrated about a morning like that and I'm not pregnant and am not adjusting to no meds so I don't think it seems extreme at all. The part that would get me is DH not helping through it all: you see I need help, help me or bear my wrath!
I hope you adjust to your pregnancy soon, but I completely understand needing time to adjust. It was a huge shock and not the best timing so it's not at all unreasonable to be ambivalent for a while. I'm glad your job is still a possibility!
Lauren, I hope today is better!
slgt, James is trustworthy on the stairs now BUT he goes down backwards. I hate when they try to walk, it scares me so much! I don't remember when I didn't really worry about Grace walking down the stairs, maybe close to 2?
Rynna, I like that you and Mike are so dedicated to coparenting your kids and giving them daily access to both of you. How does Mike handle the HRH situation?
Dea, I can't wait to hear about your ultrasound today!!!! Many good thoughts coming your way!
Emily, great to see you!
Helen, I didn't know you were a practitioner! I'll have to remember that. I'm glad you are having a nice easy pregnancy thus far. I hope it continues through your babe's arrival!
Gena, I'm really sorry things are so rough right now. I hope everything straightens out soon.
Carrie, much love coming at you!
We are good, James is talking more and more and doing new things all the time. I love this age. He has the best little mischievous smile that gets me every time. He's a much easier kid than Grace was. He is very laid back and does fine when I need to be gone, which has been frequently lately. I have several doula clients right now and still working 1 day a week on a research project and teaching my class. It's a great balance for me right now. This summer will die down and we will have vacation and I won't have clients due so that will be nice too. Grace had her first overnight away from me last weekend, it went really well. It didn't bother me at all either because I knew she was ready and she loves her papa and mema. The garden is growing, I'm having a garage sale this weekend (if it doesn't rain), and getting my house in better order. It's been a pretty good past month, thought of course there are daily rough patches, over all things are good here. I hope everyone has a great month!!
