Yay fall!
:::::

I'm going to try to chat a bit more this month...although I'm going to be shuttling Naia to and from school M-Th. I'm hoping the adjustment to starting kindergarten will be smooth for all of us.

Soon it will be pumpkin patch time again!

Angie, you around? Are you going to see Built to Spill on Saturday?

Happy September, westside mamas!

My baby turns two this month!

So is anyone else just loving this weather? I don't miss the heat at all, the last couple of days have been fabulous, cold in the mornings, warm enough to open the windows and let the fresh air in all afternoon. I actually had to put a sweatshirt on for a while yesterday morning.

I am missing the warm weather already.

Hope everyone who's starting school today made it off safely. I just saw my 1st grader off to school (she insisted on taking the bus so I just drove to school to drop off her school supplies and say goodbye, and then I lingered for the coffee and meeting with the principal while my 4 year old hung on me and kept asking when are we leaving, funfun....). I don't know what the rest of us are going to do all day, especially since Mateo doesn't start school until next week, so if anyone is interested in a playdate...

Rachel (LiLStar), for some reason I couldn't respond but the library and the city park are at the same place and there's a Max station somewhere in Beaverton but I don't know if it's close enough to walk, I guess it would also depend on how far you are willing to walk. Do you know of any parks that are close to the Max? I just don't know because we are so far from the Max we just drive everywhere. The weather's supposed to be nice all week, how about we plan for Thursday. Anyone else interested?

Well, I heard on the news that it's supposed to get warmer later this week- low 80's by the weekend.

I saw that too, but we've been outside riding bikes in the evening and it's been getting darker and colder so fast these days...

Hey guys!

I seriously LOVE this weather. It makes me so happy.

Tomorrow's my birthday! We're going to the zoo with my mom to see the new baby elephant. Then, I'm going to the movies and to dinner with my husband We haven't been out together since New Year's Eve!

We're going to Oaks Bottom Wildlife Refuge on Friday at 11 for our hike if anyone is interested in meeting up. I'll make a post more about it on my blog sometime today.

Nicole | Mom to Ciara & Oliver | Finally living aboard & loving it!

I'm stuck with the max since I can't drive I just did a search though and it looks like its pretty easy to get to the beaverton city library on the 52. So I could do that. Although Thursday isn't so good. I just made an appt for a consultation with a midwife for thurs. I just found out I'm pregnant today! : So I need to get down with this midwife selecting business.

Congrats Rachel!

And happy birthday Nicole!

We went to see the baby elephant today and he was so cute. The line moves fast. And we sat on a bench inside and watched the mom and baby for awhile. What a long day at the zoo...I'm exhausted!

I went to the zoo today, too bad I didn't see you! We got there at 2:45 and saw how long the line was for the baby elephant and skipped it because it said they were closing the elephant viewing at 3. Oh well, next time!

Shoot.. does baby elephant viewing close at 3 every day? I wanted to take Allie after nap tomorrow, which would get us there probably around 3-3:30.

Thanks everyone!!! Anyone have a midwife they love? I've heard great things about Pam, but I'm not sure I'm up to driving to Salem every 4 (2, 1) weeks. I need to start interviewing!

Congratulaions Rachel! We loved our midwife, Ellie Legare. You can do a search on here for PDX midwives and you'll get a lot of good references.

Wow that's exciting. Congratulations! We could do the park another day. Or going to see the baby elephant sounds like fun too. I don't have anything friday.

A line? Hm, must rethink. Kid doesn't do lines well. Planning on tomorrow at 2ish and later... and actually don't care if baby closes at 3 and I miss it. Who else was going to be ther? Look for a crabby 3yo in orange

And yes, Woodburn is crazy but had ORANGE clothes!

It looks like a bunch of stuff got moved when they reorganized and whatnot. Check the Tribal area archives here it has threads from the whole tribal area not just local, so it might take longer to sort through.

ETA just to see what's there, I searched the archives for pdx midwives and got a bunch of results, including this thread, which seems to have a lot of information on a bunch of midwives in the area.

Good luck!

Yaaay okay tomorrow I have interviews scheduled with Ellie Legare and the midwives at andaluz. I'm surprised how easily/quickly they could get me in.

I'm going to the toddler LLL meeting tomorrow morning. am I going to meet anyone from here?

Pam is wonderful, and her apprentice-turned-midwife Lennon is also now available to take clients. She has very similar philosophies as Pam, but she will be doing ALL prenatal visits in your home for the time being so you wouldn't have to be driving down to Salem!

If anyone is interested in a free New Seasons grocery delivery, HERE is a code you can enter if you're a first time customer.

They don't deliver to Newberg

Hi all. Missed everyone the last few days.

If there's a thread you want moved out of the archives, I think you can contact annettemarie or courtenay_e and ask for it to be moved.

My nephew's turning TWO this month! : And Brisen will be 1.5! And Gary and I will be 29 and 27! And Gary's best friend Meredith will be getting married, and Gary's gonna be in the wedding! Whew, big month!

OK, this is how fuzzy headed I am. I kept looking at the thread and thinking nobody was posting. I didn't realize a new month had started... scary!

So we are supposed to move the big stuff on Sunday and I am so not ready. Anybody want to come and baby hold tomorrow or Saturday? I'm depressed and desperate today.

Oh, btw, did anybody else hear Google is coming to The Dalles? Ron has a phone interview on Monday! But he will want to move he says... OMG, we just signed a lease! If he gets it, pleeease somebody else have their husband look into it. They are paying reeeally well and favoring OR candidates because of the tax break we gave them.

For now, Ron is helping his friend out at his auto shop. He started on Tuesday and it has been really hard on Orion. He laid in front of the office door crying for like 15 minutes this morning.

I'm going with Ellie I had a much better impression of her than at Andaluz. It felt more casual/relaxed. Andaluz felt a little more.. formal? Meeting with Ellie felt a little more like meeting with a friend. And just overall clicked well. And her office definitely has Allie's seal of approval! She was having so much fun playing with the toys, and was SO PISSED when it was time to go. At Andaluz she was grabbing my hand and pulling me towards the door. Its a sign! lol.
