Here!

Skye has suddenly hit the big girl phase- we went on a picnic yesterday and she took a couple of dozen pictures of sheep with daddy's camera. I'm so proud! She's talking more and can do all of this new cool stuff. It's great.

So when are the babies due?

I'm here! No April fools baby, so far...

The due date is April 11th, and Matt just had an offer this morning for an expense paid trip to Newfoundland for the launch of a new anthology he's been published in on April 24th. So there goes my laid back "whenever the baby wants to come" attitude...

Neela is delightful. She made me a painting today with "a battalion of colour". Do you think her father is a poet, perhaps?

And yes, snow. It's gone now, but certainly an April Fool's joke. I've been reminded by my darling child to please make more polite requests of mother nature. The proper way to ask is "um, excuse me, snow... could you please go away?" Then she made up a song requesting more sun, which hasn't been very effective yet.

"Guess what? It's a magical world. And when I sing, my songs are in it."

We didn't actually have snow here, but we saw some on a car. We were with a friend and her little guy, coming back to her place after gymnastics drop-in (FUN!) and there it was, a car ahead of us with snow all over its rear window and trunk. My friend and I made disgusted noises but the gist from the back seat was "what the heck are guys complaining about, we LOVE snow!!!" I tried to remind Rowan about all her "when is it going to be spring?" questions but somehow that didn't compute. Ah, to be 3 again.

It is drizzly and nasty here. My mom comes tomorrow and she has her cardiac ablation procedure next week, so I'm going over to Vancouver so they'll release her from the hospital while she still has sedative in her. She's all excited about being able to see her insides on a monitor while they do it. Truly, she missed her calling - if she'd become a doctor she would have totally been a female House.

Sorry to hear about all of the crappy Canada weather! We've been enjoyed sun and warmth off and on for the past week, but I still remind myself this is the midwest and we aren't really out of the range of snow until May! I remember one year in Ohio taking pictures of snow inside of the tulips that were in full bloom!

Mel, glad to hear everything went OK with the dental procedure - well, except the lack of sleep part!

Spughy, I hope everything goes well with your mom's procedure and she has fun seeing her insides. Yechk!

Fern, I sitll can't believe you guys are going to move! It seems like you've just found your groove in LIttle Fort!

My EDD is next Friday, the 10th. Nothing new to report in possible-baby-coming news....still have insomnia every fucking night : and still trying to keep him anterior (he's been flipping posterior every couple of days), and just generally in limbo. I didn't think I wanted to go back to work after spring break last week, but it's been good because it's been keeping me in the world, so to speak; otherwise I think I would just be lost in that weird end-of-pregnancy zone that I lapsed into last time. And I'm just trying to really savor these last few days with Brynn. It's really bittersweet....

Ever-evolving mama to my beautiful Brynn, and my little dimple-face Noah .

Spughy, your mom sounds like a hoot.

Mel, a battalion of color! What a gorgeous image.

Amy, I remember thinking at the end of both pregnancies that it wasn't so much that I was done being pregnant, I was just really, really done with the insomnia and the heartburn!

DiD, I'm with ya: I realized I didn't post once in March, and that both March and February were whirled into one foggy out-of-time experience in my mind.

Helen, her pictures must be darling! I've thought about putting together some sort of little collage with Woody's pictures; that way, I'll forever remember Joshua's shoes, the houseplant in the dining room, the ceiling and half the curtains, and what my face looks like from 2 cm. away.

Fern, moving! Wow! What is Kaslo like?

I'll be back with more Woodson and Fox news later. Right now, warm carrot muffins are calling... Mmmmm....

***

OK. One's napping and the other is at the window enthralled with the recycling truck doing its thing.

So, we're fabulous. Just truly fabulous. Fox is doing so amazingly well that he's not even giving me the chance to be that mother who can never quite relax into her child's well-being. Thriving doesn't begin to describe the day-to-day with this happy, bright (blue?!!?)-eyed 14 1/2 lb. baby.

We went to a 4-day music festival this past weekend with both my sisters and their children (4 and 11), and despite the squall line bringing on-and-off hard, fast rain and whipping winds, we had a great time. We swam in the Suwannee River, huddled together in each other's tents reading books to the kids, drank bathtub sweet-cherry wine, and danced in the meadow to bluegrass tunes and the voice of Richie Havens.

I go back to teaching Monday, albeit part-time, 8:00 to 12:30. There are only six weeks left in the school year, so I'm hoping it will be just enough time for me to feel a sense of completion without getting burned out. I'm planning projects that I like to help me through it!

HT, your boys sound beautiful!!! I am so happy that everything has settled into peace and thriving. The music festival sounds amazing! I love Richie Havens. I hope teaching goes well, and I'm glad it's just six weeks to start with.

Amy, I hope work continues to help somewhat, and that you get some relief, even before birth, from the insomnia and heartburn! What a strange, wonderful, hard time.

Boo on the Canadian weather.

Yay on the preschool, Spughy!

Mel, I hope the timing of the birth happens just perfectly. And I'm glad Neela's dental procedure went well and is behind you.

Thinking of you and Amy so much in these final days of pregnancy!

Helen, Skye sounds precious. It is so fun to watch them grow and grow, isn't it?

Fern, the move sounds exciting (and crazy, yes, but you sound so positive and sure about it). I am feeling a bit better, overall, but just when I think I am making progress, I have a bad day, or like this morning, greeted the day throwing up I am So ready for this part to be over. It's coming, though, I know. And I'm so grateful to be pregnant, and am so so excited to have a homebirth and do things so much more naturally and better this time.

Finley is a sweetheart. He has been so patient and understanding with me while I have been under the weather, and we have enjoyed a new spot called Eaton Canyon which is a nice respite into nature, with a creek, rocks, etc. Makes me yearn for more country-esque living. And he seems quite excited to be a big brother, which is exciting for me. I think he will really love having a little brother or sister.

DiD, how's everyone doing at your house?

Q of C, I hope you are feeling better, and hope you are having fun with your etsy shop! I'm so excited to see it!

Ok, I think that is all the rambling from me for now.
to you all.

Barcelona, I hope your nausea subsides and you're feeling well soon. How wonderful that Finley has been understanding through all of this

HoneyTree, good luck with being back to school! Will you be taking both boys with you? I'm glad to hear that Fox is doing so well after the challenges of his early days

Neela is beside me on the couch sleeping off some exhaustion, dehydration and a lingering fever from a terrible gasteroenteritis that plagued her since Friday night. She ate a few bites of toast and has kept down fluids this morning (so far...) so I think she's on the mend. Her puking was enough to stop whatever early labour I was having on Friday afternoon/evening, though.

Eventually I will find the time to have this baby, right? I'm amazed at how full my life (and my calendar) are, though mostly things are cancel-able and just there to keep me occupied while I wait. I'm off to pull weeds out of some communal plots at the community garden this afternoon while Neela and Matt have a DVD date

Oh Mel I am so happy for all of you - sounds like a great birth! How special for Matt and Nora to share a birthday - and I love her name!
How is Neela doing? I think it is wonderful that she got to be there and see her sister born.
Now you are twice blessed.
Happy babymoon, Mel. Give both girls a smooch from me!

I've been thinking of you all day, Amy

We're doing well here. My milk came in quickly and nursing settled into a great rhythm. Nora is miss sleeps a lot so far- it's kind of crazy (Matt asked me today if something was wrong with her...). Last night she slept a 4 1/2 hours stretch, but Neela woke up twice during that time!! Neela is really sweet with Nora and giving her kisses and love, but she's freaking out a bit at us and had more meltdowns than usual. She's also been sooo rude with strangers and visitors, and generally keeping us on our toes and working on our gentle discipline every day.

Mel, I'm so glad that nursing has been going well, and that Nora is sleeping a lot! And that Neela loves her
As for her meltdowns and behavior with others, I'm sure it'll ease up as she adjusts to the big change. And, I hope that you and Matt aren't too strained on your gentle-discipline toes.

I'm so glad that things are going so well, overall!!!

...and Amy, cannot wait to hear your news!

HELEN!!!! OMG!!!!

Amy, hope all is well with you.

No news here. I am definitely NOT pregnant. It is a beautiful day here though and we are off to see our cow's new calf this afternoon. I think my cheater cauliflower plants got frost-killed last night though. The grass was crunchy this morning, and the spray nozzle for the hose was missing so I opted to forfeit the $1.50 they cost and let them die rather than freezing my thumb off and getting cold, cold water all over me in a possibly vain attempt to make the hose spray anyway. I am a cruel and selfish person, but I'm ok with that.

Mel, melt my heart! The picture is beautiful!!! Thank the gods for eventless nursing! Fox sleeps 4-5 hours at a stretch, too, and once I finally calmed down about it, I was really, really glad for having that much time for my body to heal.

HELEN!!! : and : and Oh, girl!

Amy, I am waiting anxiously for splendid news!

Foxy's lost his hair on the sides just like Woody did, so he's sporting quite the funky faux-hawk these days. And he's staying huge. I don't know exactly how much he weighs, but I think it's close to 16 lbs. He's out of clothes that fit Woody until 9 months. But he laughs as soon as he looks at you, and he grabs things with his feet! I'm so in love.

As for Woody, he's having a bit of an adjustment going back to school. He's had three accidents in two weeks. I think he is just getting too distracted to notice the sensation until it's urgent, and then he still needs me to go in the bathroom with him when he's not at home, so by the time he finds me and I get to the point where I can leave the class and we both get to the bathroom...you see the problem. I'm hoping that's all it is, but there might be some other difficulties--he did spend 24/7 with me from mid-December to mid-March.

In other news, we planted a new 4 ' by 10 ' garden box, though my sprouts got pummeled by a massive thunderstorm yesterday, so I think I'm going to have to start many of them over again.

wow..all of a sudden there is a LOT going on..

first off AMY! ive been thinking of you for days. i cant wait to hear how everything is going. i hope that you have that wee sweet baby in your arms now and that everything is perfect.:

mel, your sweet girl Nora is just lovely!! im so happy for you all.

helen, ive already posted in your DDC.

honey: i love these little peaks into your world.

as for me.. not much new here. rue is a nurse-a-holic. so much that my nipples feel as though they could possibly fall off any moment.
ive been offered a fairly full time daycare job for 3 of my favorite kids in clearwater, but timothy and i have decided to leave this lovely town for something slightly different. a town called kaslo, in the kootenays. its got a bit more going for it..a waldorfy preschool, lots of home/unschoolers.. lake in town and lots of health food stores and coffee shops. im kind of at the point where im having panick attacks thinking about moving and since so far we have no home there, and timothy no job..it will likely be a while.. we are hoping around july...so until then ill do the job.6 kids under the age of 6..well 5 really since E will be in school. their youngest is 7 months or so..

ngaio..is..well..still...a lot of work. i wish that i had a lot of nice things to say but honetsly im not at my best these days. i feel so overwhelmed by the constant tantriums and messes and stuff. ive been hididng away in my house watching movies and reading books and hoping that it will all pass by quickly. rue isnt much better. elwynn is my shining hope that someday this too shall pass.

Fern, I'm glad that you have great plans ahead. I really like Kaslo. Good luck with the daycare job!

HoneyTree, I hope that the transition to school progresses well for Woody. And Fox sounds amazing- 16lbs! WOW!

Fern FWIW, the past few weeks I've found myself putting Skye back to bed most mornings and telling her that we don't scream in company- and since I've done that, she's been a much happier person to be around.

Honeytree Enjoy your blessings, they sound wonderful.

Spughy, I'm sorry for your poor plants

Congratulations!!! What wonderful news!

Also, AMY!, too, I am just DYING for news! I saw a congrats on facebook and assumed the person had news, from the way they wrote it...but am not sure...and cannot wait to hear that all is well that your baby boy is in your arms


HoneyTree, your boys sound so beautiful. I just love hearing about dear Fox.

Fern, the move sounds exciting. I hope it all comes together perfectly in the right time. And I hope it eases with the girls soon. Finley definitely has his moments, and I find myself often asking him to talk to me nicely, etc. Three definitely seems like a challenging age to me...

Also sorry about your plants, spughy.

As for me, I meet a midwife tomorrow, and hopefully will like her and can start really planning and envisioning this birth. I am so excited to have this one at home! I am feeling much better, and so grateful for that.

Amy- : can't wait to hear the official news!!!! Thinking of you and hope you're snuggling your little boy right now!

Mel- I'm glad to hear nursing has smoothed out a bit and Nora is sleeping. It is definitely harder to allocate your time with more than one.

Teresa- I'm so glad Fox is growing and thriving We're having potty problems, too. It's no fun. But it's got to improve soon!

Fern- I totally feel you, mama. I'm actually glad you wrote what you did because somehow it makes me feel better that we all have times like that, and it's not just me! As great as having these wonderful children are, often I find it quite HARD! Although today and yesterday we had great days! I am so thankful for those recharging days.

Helen! Woo hoo. Um, looks like we'll be sharing a DDC again. Yep. : I am scared to death, already way in over my head with what I already have to manage, but for some reason feel a sense of calm. Who knows, with my history I'm not expecting it to go beyond 12 weeks.
