It's me... I'm around I fell behind midway through last month, and I've barely kept up so far this month, but never gotten the chance to post. I only have a second now, so I'm being self-centered and not doing personals I will try to asap.
Menfolk - I have to stand up for mine I'm really sorry so many of you are struggling. I get so mad for you. But they really aren't all like that, I swear! My DP and I still share everything. He firmly believes he is an absolute equal in the parenting front in everything but feeding And he is. Although I don't ask him to change nappies at night, and he lets me sleep in an hour or so in the morning - however long I get before Kaia wakes up. We're still both at home doing the daycare together, and I love it. He worked at a brewery before and he took 2 months off for Kaia's birth, went back to work for about a month and called it, he missed his little baby girl so much He quit and we've been together since Even when he was working elsewhere though - he worked while I went to school, then I got pregnant so getting a job seemed pointless, I just worked on our house and did daycare for 2 hours a day. I felt so weird not working, being at home, and him making all the money. And guilty. And he told me over and over about how it was our money, that we were both working toward our future and it didn't matter who the check was made out to. Even so.. I felt weird about it up until we were both doing exactly the same thing, minus him nursing Which he also wished he could share, and sometimes so do I!
Did you miss my ridiculously long posts?
I've been soooo busy between daycare, working on our house, x-mas / birthday crafts for the nieces and nephews, and we're trying to open up an etsy shop We're going to try to sell organic hand-dyed, hand-screened onesies and hats, and hopefully some other baby apparel, too. But the first order is in for just the onesies and hats. And some little toys I've made, like the bugs I may have posted here before, maybe some cherry teethers I don't think I ever put up online, and gnomes. We'll see. Anyway, I'm still working on all of it, and my banner is far from done yet, I'm going to put a real image of the little character on the right, for instance, and make the entire thing more finished, but I would LOVE to hear some critiques on my banner / avatar if anyone is up for it. Oh, it's called Juise, of course! Here it is That's all the far I've gotten on the page, obviously.
And I'll sum everything else up with a couple picture. Went to Renaissance Festival. Yay! Used the Tutu and crown I'd made before, dyed her onesie with some Chlorophyll and painted some wings on the back - Ren Fest 1 Ren Fest 2
Got her Halloween costume in, the 3 of us are going to be punk rockers, haha! Our little punk.
There are a bunch of other new picture up on Flickr for anyone who is interested in them, and there's my blog, too, of course, but as always it's a little behind. Kaia is still all over the place, still no teeth. She can stand on her own for about 10 seconds max these days and thinks it's absolutely thrilling. Loves getting into things, and to that effect we've set up a couple metal bins, I think they're planters, filled with driftwood, little wooden pegs and rings and various other things we find that she LOVES rummaging around in. She also LOVES playing the drums. Definitely will have to get a video of that up - so funny. Still our happy, chill social little beebles, but you guys are scaring me with these "omg sudden personality change" stuff.
We just got a new refrigerator yesterday : Our old one didn't shut all the way so it ran all the time and cost us more a month than this one will a year! Very exciting. We also finally got around to getting a video camera, so I'll have to get some videos up soon.
Have missed talking to you all, to all, I think I've monopolized this page enough now
