Your hair/eye color- curly Brown/green
DH - JAke
Kids & ages- Sophia Rose, almost 11 months
Birthing experience- Don't have it posted anywhere because I STILL haven't written it but here is the skinny: A planned homebirth that ended up being a precipitous homebirth. The midwives arrived as Sophia was crowning and I was delighted to have such a wonderful experience. THe entire pregnancy, I dreamed I would have a super fast unattended birth on the toilet...maybe next time?
Reason you picked kid(s) name(s)- Sophia has always been my favorite name, waaaay before it became popular. A few months before we found out we were pregnant (which was a big shock), I dreamed I had just given birth to my daughter Sophia. It was very vivid and real, and even though we were planning on waiting a few more years, I felt like she was coming. Sure enough, she picked me and I knew it was my Sophia!
Who does your babe look like- Earlier she was my clone as a baby. Now she looks more and more like DH. We're hoping she gets my curls.
Color of her hair/eyes- Brown/blue-green
Baby walking or crawling- crawling and standing forever but no steps yet!.
Baby's personality thus far- very willful around us, super super noisy! But morphs in to shy quiet little girl around other kids. too weird.
Baby's likes/dislikes- LOVES cats, water, Shakira, yogurt, and momma. Dislikes blankets, being snuggled and clothes!
More kids - For sure, I'm hoping 2 more, DH just wants one more. I'd like to start trying now but have too many school loans and need to work a bit.
Fav foods/dessert- LOVE LOVE LOVE spicey indian food and chocolate. All fruits and veggies. For the most part, I am super nutritious but have a major weakness for sweets
If you won a paid vacation anywhere, where would you go- Mmhhh, probably Germany. I've been there several times and love it.
Last movie seen (dvd) - Kill Bill 1 and 2
Fav movies - okay, very hokey but the Thomas Crown Affair. I just LOVE pierce brosnan.
Reading a book? Yes, lots. Knitting books, Breastfeeding and natural childspacing, vaccine and gentle discipline books.
Last book read? I've always got something on but the last fiction book was life of Pi
Fav stores - In general, TARGET!!! It gives me a MN-fix. For me, Ann Taylor and Ann Taylor Loft and JJill. For Sophia, I avoid new stores and rely on gifts and hand me downs and target sales...I could get soooo into cute girl clothes.
