  • C'est Moi!

    ~ Was great friends with my husband before we even started dating. Worked together. I actually trained him! Dated on and off {and off and on} for a few years before we stuck together for 4 more. Married August 4th of 2007. Found out a few months later that I was pregnant.

    ~ Pregnancy was full of anxiety filled moments, with the possibilty of me getting pre-eclampsia and being high risk. High protein levels, fluctuating BPs, inconsistent NSTs...But nothing ever came of it. Induced labor, 4 cms to complete in an hour, 30 minutes of pushing, no epidural. Wicked fast. But wouldn't change a thing...

    ~ Live in a humble home in Washington. Hoping to find "our" house soon. But grateful that we have a place to call home in the meantime.

    ~ Taking motherhood day by day, learning to let little things go more and more. Which was so hard for me to do before she came into our lives. I was so intent on having everything perfect, that was my downfall. I'd take on way too much at work and had no one to blame but myself. Sometimes just saying "Screw it!" makes it better now. The dishes can wait. The laundry can wait. She needs me now, not the vacuum.

    ~ She's EBF, we co-sleep kind of...some nights we move her to the bassinet next to our bed, cloth diapered, we don't deny vax, we don't let her CIO, I sling her when I can... Most important thing to me, is she is healthy, happy, and loved greatly. I love my Charlie girl.

    ~ Annnd we have two crazy kitties. Char & Athena. They've been in our lives as long as we've been together. Char is a long haired cat that's cute one minute, psycho the next. Athena is a mellow cuddly cat. She gives me hugs and is pretty particular on who she loves on. Char is just an attention whore. We love them like they are our own kids...albeit...hairy, 4 legged kids.
