Hello,<br><br>
I think I've posted an introduction on this forum before, but it would have been well over a year ago when I wasn't even pregnant yet. I lurk on here but haven't posted much, though that will probably change now that I'm a mom.<br><br>
My husband and I are new parents to Meredith Alannah. She was born at home and will be 3 weeks old on Sunday. She hasn't been put down more than a minute or two at a time since birth, and spends most of her time skin to skin with one of us. We cosleep, breastfeed, mostly cloth diaper (though we're slowly trying to start EC), wear her in a sling or wrap when we go out, will be delaying or skipping vaccines, etc. It's nice to find a community of people who won't think we're nuts or that we've "gone hippie", as my mom likes to say.<br><br>
Anyway, I already have tons of questions, so I will be posting more now when I can get on the computer.

I'm originally from Nova Scotia but living in Victoria right now (DH is in the Navy). We've been here about a year now and have fallen in love with the Island! We lived in Calgary for a couple of years before here but city living is not for me!

That's funny. I'm originally from Calgary but moved to Victoria 6 years ago and fell in love with it too. I'm not a city girl either. Lived in Sidney for a couple of years and am now back in Victoria.

I'm not a city lover but Calgary was a pretty wicked city to live in. We did spend most of the week-ends with friends in Canmore though...I miss Canmore so much!
