Ack! Sorry it’s been so long. I tried to make a new blog at blogland but it’s just too much work doing another format. I think I will have to just stay here for a while.

To Do

sigh It’s really bugging me that I can’t figure out how to post a “comments” link after my posts. I’ve looked at others’ source codes and it appears to be java script and I suck at java! UgH, there hs to be an easy way to do it! I’ve read everything in the “help” section […]

Circumcision

I was visiting with my grandparents the other day and for some reason circumcision came up. My grandmother recounted the story about her first son and the doctor telling her she HAD to circ him! And how he was shaking so hard he couldn’t even nurse when they brought him back! Poor baby! It still […]

Eek Spiders!

My emotions seem to have stabilized, my nipples have healed, and I am really loving having a newborn around. He smells sooooo good. Sometimes I just sit and smell him LOL. He really is […]

Figuring it out

Ollie and I are finally figuring things out. It looks as if he may have a short frenulum (tongue tie) so sore nipples may be a thing of the past as soon as it gets snipped yay! He is getting plenty to eat and I have taken to calling him affectionately “piggy boy” because he […]

Oliver William’s Birth Story

Not much time so I am copy and pasting my story! I didn’t get to have my homebirth. My experience wasn’t empowering, but it was beautiful, and most of all it was mine. I made all the decisions and called all the shots. No one hurt me or degraded me and it was a peaceful […]

This little guy is really nice to me and doesn’t cause me too much pain. I’m still sleeping just fine and feeling nice and rested. I can walk […]

Wasting Time

Well, writing that did seem to help a little. Here I am back online wasting my time again, LOL. DH has talked me into seeing Star Wars tonight. Which is really a bummer since I had planned months ago on taking my new babe. Contractions are every 10 minutes but as usual it could just […]

Hypocrite

I am feeling like the world’s biggest hypocrite today. Heavens I don’t even know if I spelled that right! I am 5 days overdue with my third baby. I am wondering if there is something wrong. Sometimes I have fantasies that the baby comes so fast the midwife doesn’t make it, other times I imagine […]
