Merry Imbolc....


Changes at this time between Winter and Spring. I didn't quite do all I wanted to do today but I did get some of my personal space set up at home..

What a post-partum doula does.....

There is almost nothing a post-partum doula doesn't do. Housework, childcare, lactation support, emotional support for mom, and so much more.....

Whatever the family needs within reason. I met a new client today...

Etta's well visit

Etta is my tiny baby and may always be.... That is OK but I am a little worried that she hasn't gained weight. She is still getting taller though. Her Provider wants her to increase her protein intake. Her go to was to ask me to give her Pedisure. I just totally disagree with that. Pedisure is laced with chemicals, corn syrup, and useless empty calories. I was worried when I weaned Etta she would loose calories and nutrients but her diet has a lot of variety. She eats everything. She eats eggs, meat, milk, cheese, and yogurt. I really don't see how I can add a lot more protein to her diet. According to Early Intervention she is still globally delayed. According to her medical team she has FTT (failure to thrive) and a speech delay. She is scheduled for more blood work to check on several things. Hopefully we will have answers soon....







Church yesterday....

All about sharing.... that was the theme for the day in the little kids' classes. Lyn hung out with Jayne with the youngest children. Annika and Connor stayed with me through part of the service and then we went to the church library. Connor and I had a nice discussion about the new Star Wars movie. Annika found a philosophy book to dive into. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.












Happy Birthday Ben!!!

6 years old today!!!

New Ninja

We made a smoothie with the new Ninja blender Granny got for us. Fresh fruit, ice, yogurt, milk, peanut butter,  and herbs went into it. It was super yummy.... I can't wait to make hummus.




Bean soup...

I had my helpers helping me cook tonight. When you stretch your food budget you do bean inventory. Spice it up and and a little bacon for flavor and you have food for days...
