Summer Projects

I’ve gotten completely out of the habit of updating since my little vacation. I think this is half due to the change in the structure of my days, and half to everything else that seems to have popped up out of nowhere all at once. My to do list went from a small handful of things, to not having space for everything on the little board where I keep my list of things that need doing.

That list includes a larger, more permanent place for our goats….. which is going up on the shady side of a larger storage shed. It is going up remarkably quickly for something being done in spare time (ha!).

There was also the first (of what will hopefully be many) Georgia Birth Network’s Birth Ball!After lots of planning and hard work by several of the GBN ladies, it went wonderfully and was well attended. I love when effort pays off.

Mellie is loving the summer. She is a huge fan of the outdoors. When she is fussy and nothing else seems to make her happy, a snack and some grass between her toes works wonders.

Roadtrip To Baby

We’re finally home again, arriving to be greeted by a massively overgrown garden (no pictures of it in full glory since I dove straight into clean up efforts upon arrival without thinking about taking any). That kept me busy last night, so I got all my pictures from the trip uploaded this morning.

Mellie was really amazing on the ride. She only really got fussy right before bedtime and shortly before we arrived back home after 3 hours in stop and go traffic.

We ended up staying for about a week and a half, during which Mellie learned to say “baby”..

..and we did some belly henna.

Then there was a special delivery!

Greetings From Maryland

My munchkin and I are visiting my best friend outside of Baltimore as she eagerly awaits the beginning of her own journey into parenthood. After a somewhat long road trip with a small child, we are here and settled in and have been for a few days. I have taken a ton of pictures, but my brilliant idea of bringing both camera and laptop and continuing to update like normal isn’t working out the way I had expected it to. Then again, how often do thing really go as planned?

Soon it will be back to normal schedule, but, until then, please wish my favorite Maryland mama-to-be (and the associated daddy) a quick, easy, uncomplicated birth for their first child!

More Birthday Pictures

I seem to be getting further and further behind on my blog posts, but I’m finally getting caught up on some other stuff that has desperately needing doing. For example, my brand spanking new birth services website is up and running! It’s kind of bare bones, and a bit rough around the edges, but I decided it was time to stop waiting for inspiration to strike me for a design and just put something functional up. I’m getting a new Etsy shop going too, but that project is only partially complete.

I did, however, get Mellie’s birthday party pictures off my camera, sorted, touched up, and ready to print, post and otherwise share!

I love first birthday cake pictures!
