About Me

My photo
I am a cloth diapering, breastfeeding, cosleeping, baby led weaning, extended rear facing, eco conscious, married mommy to two beautiful children. They have changed my view on the world we live in. It is now my number 1 goal to make it the best I can for them to grow up in. I find myself always rethinking how I want to live my life and often feel like sharing my findings and thoughts with others. So I guess here's my chance :o) I will talk about topics that interest me. If you dont like them or dont agree, well... there's nothing much I can do!

First month

First month already done. Baby is the size of a poppy seed. Brain is being developed as I type this. I never got to enjoy this part the first time around since I was already 9-10 weeks pregnant when I found out. I also never got to deal with the "uncertainty" of the first 12 weeks. I'm definitely not sad I missed out on this part last year.

Since we had been trying for a while, we were both very eager to find out. I was blessed with irregular cycles so that means I have taken about 20 HPT since the fall (thank goodness for Costco!). And finally, with some stability, SUCCESS! We have always questioned our decision to either tell friends of not. And since Keegan will be sailing for the majority of the next several months, if I were to have any issues, I would need support from friends and family. We wont be announcing it on Facebook anytime soon but are definitely letting most people know.

Since we now need to start getting Abigail`s "big sister" room ready, I have decided to crochet a big beautiful afghan for her room. A fellow pregnant military wife in my neighbourhood has agreed to show me how! With summer break fast approaching, nesting can start early! Now if only this first trimester cold could go away...

Wish I blogged more often

I truly admire you guys who blog on a regular basis. I wrote 6 posts back in August and once in December but other than that, nothing. Maybe I shouldn't over think it and just write shorts posts. Short posts are better than nothing right?! I would love to be able to put at least one out a week. Is that too much? Juggling work and home has filled my day to the brim. Wake up, get ready, work, make supper, try to entertain Abigail, then we all go to bed at the same time. Doesn't leave much time for anything else much less sit down and write about something.

And yet there is so much I could talk about! -Work. But I will actually stay away from that topic unless I want to risk my job. -Abigail. She is becoming so smart. Her vocabulary is expanding daily! -An update on my new year's resolutions. I have worked on them all! -My ever-expanding landscaping. Lots of new vegetables hopefully being added this year. -Eco-consciousness. All the little changes that we have made. -Complain. Well that topic list is unfortunately never ending.

Maybe I should start out with something really simple like posting a special picture once a week. Hopefully I will be pregnant soon since that will give me more options for a weekly post. Having 2 months off this summer should give me time to get into a routine. If you know of any other little topics that are easy to post about on a weekly basis, please share!
