I went to the tot time at our Library in our new town.  I really liked it and so did Luke.  There were about 20 kids there.  The woman in charge was really bubbly and friendly.  So I think we'll go back.  I was impressed with the amount of board books they had for kids too.  Way more than my old library, well, they might have less, but they had more available to check out.

While they were reading and singing songs I looked hopefully looked around trying to spot other 'crunchy' Moms.  LOL.  I don't think that's something you can spot.  I didn't really go out of the way to to try to meet anyone.  I don't know if that sounds rude but I wasn't really in the mood today to chit chat.  But I overheard a lot of the conversations of moms afterwards and they all seemed like very nice people.  Maybe I can talk to someone next time.  I'd be nice to find some moms around to hang out with.  But I already have two friends with kids Luke's age from college that live close by.  So how many more do I need?  Plus, I'm still in denial about living so far away from my old neighbor and favorite mom friend, Lisa_C.  I guess I just need to drive up to Portland to hang out.

Well that's all for now.  Trying to take a nap now.

Moving and Pregnancy

We just moved to the town where my husband works. It's more of a town where as before, it was more the suburb of the city. I miss where we used to live mostly because I miss our house. Right now we're in an apartment, which isn't so bad, but if we were going to be here longer I would have to do something about the chaos. We're currently in the process of closing on another house but it will be a couple more weeks until we will move again. I'm excited though that it will be before Christmas!!
Luke handled the move great. He loves new places. I asked him if he liked his new house and he said 'uh huh'!  Well, and he sleeps with us so there's really no room transition or anything that I hear about when people move with kids. 

I am currently 15 weeks pregnant and mostly over all morning sickness. There still are days that I feel nauseous but it's just from being tired. And it's pretty easy to get tired with a cute 18 month old running around!! 
Nursing is still going well. I had a thrush spell but I think it's mostly gone, knock on wood. And it still seems like I still have plenty of milk, and I'm really happy for that. 
I saw my midwife for my first official appointment around 12 weeks. We got to hear the baby's heartbeat... Music to our ears. And I really love my midwife!  She does home births only.  I'm really excited to do a home birth, I think it will be a lot more relaxing than the hospital and I'm really happy about it. Though we still have yet to tell some of our family, we'll see how that goes. 

Things are going pretty well. I'm really looking forward to thanksgiving and eating lots of yummy food. Though, I am sad about missing holiday beer. It's my favorite. 
I hope to update more now. I'm really going to try.
