New Blog

Those of you who are interested in midwifery, natural childbirth, homebirth, doulas, etc. I have created a new blog about my journey to being a doula and midwife: At times these subjects can be controversial so only visit with an open mind.

Just For Fun

I saw this and I thought it looked fun.
Your rainbow is shaded green.


What is says about you: You are an intelligent person. You feel strong ties to nature and your mood changes with its cycles. Those around you admire your fresh outlook and vitality.

Wonder why my bloggy colors ended up being green?

Christmas Photos

We usually go to target to get Christmas pictures done but this year I decided to take the pictures myself. As most of you know I do have a little experience and have taken a couple college classes in photography. However a digital photo class is something I was never interested in, so basically I know the just of posing and color co-ordinating but once it is uploaded to my computer, cropped and resized my skills are at a stand still. Another problem is that I have a VERY basic digital camera and the photo program I have is hmmm.... more than lacking. Apart form all that the pictures didn't turn out too bad.

Caleb was my first victim... I mean subject. He was such a good sport about it and said "Merry Christmas" for all the shots.
Man that kid needs a hair cut! Oh well, maybe I'll just let it grow out and see what it looks like long haha.

Getting Leland to stay in one place was REALLY a challenge!

Hurry Caleb kiss your brother! Click click. Good job boys!

The resolution to getting Leland to stay in one place was a little... no A LOT scary! I had Caleb sit on a stool and hold Leland in his lap while Dave is below them hoping no one falls.

Cute though don't you think?

For my last task I had to figure out the self timer on my camera (something I had never used before). Try to get everyone in the picture in the 10 seconds allotted and smile.
Okay so everyone but Leland in smiling but that was a little unrealistic.. at least we are all in there.

Merry Christmas!

What Did We Do With Our Recently Finished Room?

For now it is a play room, Caleb LOVES it! I love it too, I can just trow all the toys in there at the end of the day and close the door, although I do clean and re-organize it about three times a week its a lot better than two or three times a day like I was doing before when the whole house was a "toy for all".

At some point I want to put a futon or sofa bed in there for guests but for now the only seating is our toy storage thing :)

Its nice to have space for Caleb's tunnels and tents to be up all the time. He and the cat play cat and mouse with it, although sometimes I'm not sure whos who...

In one corner I set up a little reading area.
