28 learnings in 28 days

28 learnings in 28 days

Most- well, ALL of the past 28 days have been spent in a marathon of dance, as Ken and I get to know this little girl and, simultaneously, begin to see each other as parents.  What we’re already finding is, the moment we catch up with, and understand, one delicate pattern of behaviour with Camden, … Continue reading

37 weeks… If our baby were a goose…

She’d be fully cooked this week.  Somehow, 33 weeks and roughly the same amount of pounds since discovering that this little girl was on the way, we have arrived at full term.  About 1/2 of the babies in our group prenatal class for July have arrived happily and healthily, and i’m looking around the apartment … Continue reading
