i've typed out two lengthy posts since my last post and each time i went to post it my computer froze and away went the post. hopefully this one will stick.
baschabad - i loved the montage! sooo beautiful
naturemama - the dedication dress is unreal. you do amazing work.
hlnmommy - i have a spitter also. dd1 wasn't, so it's new for me. faith spits up, and projectiles, fairly frequently. i have to burp her after about one full minute of nursing before we continue. i let forth a lot fairly quickly, so our nursing sessions aren't very long. if we have a long one and i space out, it's all over us.
and yay for smiles
zahirakids - i too love the leggings. and peace is beautiful
we had our last mw appt last friday and faith was just about 12 lbs also. crazy cuz she was 8 8 at birth and 8 14 at 4 weeks after the o2 ordeal - so basically a 3 lb gain in 2 weeks. she's making up for lost time, apparently.
i think your doula aspirations are wonderful!!! and i think the distance learning program is just right for having a child this age. and i think it's the perfect time - you can take your time, learn, research, learn some more, and see what the next step should be exactly when you are ready. have you checked out the aspiring midwives thread in finding your tribe? i think you might find it really beneficial. not sure if there is an aspiring doulas thread, but maybe.
i'm so grateful for our small, tight-knit community here. i can stay close with our midwife - not lose touch.
she's showing BOBB at her place next friday. i'm very excited. 2 weeks after that i'm going to start training with her. classes 2x/month for now and attending births/going deeper when i feel ready. not sure if i ever want to be primary, but i know i will love the training and the knowledge alone can be such a positive addition to my ayurvedic practice. right now i see myself using the knowledge more for prenatal and postpartum care. we shall see!
emese'smom - faith is outgrowing her 0-3 clothes also. such a little chunk
. she doesn't seem chunky, but she's a heck of a lot bigger than her big sis at this age.
(and i found the answer to my food question here
i truly hope your dh feels well very soon.
dahlsk - so sorry about the fussiness and crying
. i hope you can find what it is that your little one is struggling with, for both of you. and if it's just the incarnation process, i hope this stage passes soon.
jess - your girls are absolutely beautiful
i took faith (and laurel and friends with kids) to the hot springs pool today. she loved the water!
we are all exhausted after playing all day at the pool after being out at the ashram all night for shivaratri (special holiday...chanting all night). the kids could all sleep in the temple, but they ran around dancing for hours first. and mama is tuckered out
right now. i wore faith and she loved it. she's so mellow though, i can't imagine her really being unhappy about too much. thank god.
lots of love to you all
and happy new moon
