Wordless Wednesday: E's 6 week checkup with our midwife

Over the weekend we made the 4 hour drive down to Summertown, Tennessee for our 6 week checkup at The Farm. We got to stay in our midwife's cabin again, the same one Everly was born in. I had her right there on the floor where the rocking chair is in this photo. Ah, the memories. We had some playtime upon arriving at the cabin. We figured letting Everly stretch out on the bed would be a nice change from being cramped in the carseat all day. E had fun playing as you can see in the above photos. We learned that an increase in humidity impacts a baby's bottom. Poor Everly got kind of rashy while we were in Tennessee so we put a potty pad (left over from the birth...

Less-words Wednesday: Baby Everly is 5 weeks old

I've been a slacker on the Wednesday photo posts! The last time I posted one was back when I was knocked up. It was the Less-words Wednesday: Pregnancy Home Stretch Edition. Now that I am taking over 100 photos of E a week Ive got lots of material to share. Here we go! She slept in her crib for the first time ever over the weekend. It was just a tiny nap in the crib on her tummy while N and I worked on stuff in the office but it was a milestone since she isn't to crazy about independent sleep. It turns out we picked the perfect bedding set because she is crazy about animal print for some reason. There is zebra print on her playmat that she loves to look at....

Less-words Wednesday: Pregnancy Home Stretch Edition

There are only two more days until I leave you all and head off to wait on my little girls arrival. I am totally feeling ready for this and am very anxious for labor to begin. Saw the chiropractor yesterday and was all out of whack again. Even more so now that Tater's bones are grinding against mine in just about every position I am in. Felt good to be adjusted and all put back in place. Here's hoping all stays that way for the delivery. With chiropractic care labor and delivery are supposed to be quicker and easier. Yesterdays adjustment was my last before heading off to The Farm. Before I head off I've been sure to write many advance posts and get them all scheduled here to tide you over...

Critters in my back yard: Rabbits, snakes, spiders, frogs and more.

There are only about 3 weeks left until I'll be at The Farm. I am doing great and Tater seems to be planning to stay inside for a bit longer (thank goodness). I've told her she has to stay put until June 4th at least, that way she'll be full term! In the meantime we have been trying to do things to have fun and to keep busy while we are waiting for Tater to do her last bits of growth and development. Things like putting the house together the way we'll need it when Tater comes home, unpacking, organizing and even vegetable gardening have been a few of our pastimes these days (other than my excessive napping). It has sure been quite a critter filled weekend for us though! Late last...

Why all-in-one-diapers ROCK! BumGenius 3.0 fun and info…

The BumGenius 3.0 diaper I ordered is here and let me tell you, it made my freaking day! I've been learning about modern cloth diapers online for months and was sure they were the way to go for us but to finally have one in your hands is the absolute best way to understand all their glory. So many people have remarked "You are so brave" or "I know I couldn't do it" when they hear our plans to cloth diaper. People really don't understand how modern and improved cloth diapers are these days. Everyone seems to need the low down on them, even N and I had trouble understanding all their features until we held one in our hands. Here is how the diaper was all packaged when it arrived: The velcro...

Got some plants on the way and some animal drama for my birthday.

Today has started off with a bang! For starters it is my birthday. I am feeling better than yesterday, thank goodness and I know I'll feel even better tomorrow when we go to see Pamela at The Farm. I am still having fun entering all sorts of giveaways to try winning some of the things we need for Tater, you can enter too. See this post for more details. N was so cute, he made a little scavenger hunt of gardening goodies for me to find for my birthday. You see all I wanted was plants and bulbs for my birthday so he ordered them. Unfortunately growers will only ship after your latest frost date so I wont actually have the plants and bulbs until April, which was expected. Still he wanted to...

Weekly Winners January 12th- 18th

Here is this weeks Weekly Winners post, as with last week all photos were captured using my new Kodak Cd-1013 Digital Camera. Here is Alexandria-Maybelle, the bunny. We have had her since way before the move to Evansville. We ended up buying her at the feed and tack store one spring while my mom was visiting us in Flagstaff. We had a bunny, Baby Bunny, prior to Alexandria-Maybelle but because of living situations (the landlord forced us to remove our unauthorized pets from the rental) we had to send her and the cats down to The Ranch to live with my mom for a few months. Anyway Baby Bunny died (from eating apple core and seed we suspect) and we went several months, almost a year, without a bunny in the home....

Birthday photos shared!

I promised to post some photos from my birthday and I try to live up to my promises! Since I got plants galore you will be subjected to a slew of bulb information and photos but don't run away yet! We also have some adorable baby photos and some yummy fondue photos to share. First, I compiled a list of the plants I got, plugged them in to my Dave's Garden Journal with photos so I could remember what got planted where in a few months. It's so easy to forget what you have and where you put it when you have a garden addiction like I do! Peruvian Daffodil (view my dave's garden journal entry by clicking here) - Is a uniquw white flower with wispy petals and a sweet scent....

Cuteness Carnival for you!

It's witchypoo's fault, she posted the cutest photo of a kitten today, I went to get a cup of coffee and found my own gato, Jack posing in all his cuteness and just had to share! It was about 57 degrees int he house when I took this photo, do you think he was cold? Then I started to recall other cute animal photos I have viewed from all my blogging buddies. Veronica also posted some adorable kitten photos that I loved! One of Veronica's commenters, Kim posted a priceless photo of a pouting child and I found a great photo of baby brotherly love over at My Little DrummerBoys. If you are looking for a laugh check out what good old fridge magnets can spell, pretty much sums up my entire...

Babies, babies everywhere!

Well as most of you know I am an auntie now. I posted a photo of baby Hazel Renee and I a few days ago and today I have another baby photo to share with you! My finches hatched their first baby! They have been laying eggs since October and until today none of them had hatched. Being their first attempt at having babies we were understanding of the lack of successful hatching but today to my surprise there was a small baby in the nest in addition to the two unhatched eggs! I tried to get a good photo without upsetting baby and parents. Hope you enjoy it! I'll keep trying to get a better shot....
