No News is Good News?

Have you ever put something off for so long that it magically morphed into a giant project, 10x larger than it was originally?

That's how I feel about this blog right now.

Between work, kids, doula-ing, etc, my poor blog's been neglected for so long that even updating it now seems intimidating. But thanks to some nudging (thanks, Elizabeth!), I'll do my best- one baby-step at a time.

The past few months have been crazy- and flown by. Since I wrote last:

1. We found a new house in Georgia. We're moving this week!
2. I separated from the Air Force. Technically I'm on terminal leave until next month.
3. Junie and Lucy aged 4 months and are crazier than ever.
4. I've attended 4 more births.
5. We found out that we are expecting baby no. 3!

Yep, Junie is going to be a big sister in September. That means I'll have 3 kids 3 year and under- whew! I'm exhausted just thinking about it. Because I write about it a lot, I'm sure you're wondering: yes, both girls are still nursing. Both are nightweaned, and Lucy is only nursing twice a day now, but we're still in tandem-nursing mode. Right now I'm trying to just go with the flow and see what happens. Part of me isn't ready for Lucy to stop yet, and the other part thinks about the logistics of nursing three (especially since Lucy and Junie each have their own "nummers" and are very protective) and is ready for the change.

Oh, and I have purple hair :-) Technically purple tips, but whatevs. Here it is:


I guess that wasn't so bad after all- here's hoping for more frequent posting as I transition to full-time stay-at-home-mom status!

It is so difficult to get back into the swing of blogging, some things are so much easier with two, some things much harder.

I hope you write more about the breast feeding journey, I'm definitely curious! In a good way lol.
