I live in a pretty progressive part of coastal Maine so though I don't know of any specific co-op houses we do have an Eco-village in the neighborhood and a number of small eco-village type groups of people who bought communal land but still have individual small plots and houses. DH and I briefly considered buying into one but when it comes down to it I think I'm too much of a private person. I love close knit community but I don't want to have to discuss plans for my land with more than just DH.
danielle- DH has a onesie, or a union suit as we call it, and I'm always so jealous in the winter. I need to find one for myself. It is pretty lovely living out in the country with a little one. Now that the weather is better he just let's himself in and out all day long (sometimes whether we like it or not). He's still too young for me to let him be out all alone (our house is right on the road and all our property is out back) but soon enough he will be and he's old enough now that I can go work in the garden and let him play in the woods, dirt, sandbox...without worrying too much because I can always see that he's not near the road.
15 wks yesterday!
