guest post & a mama bird’s nest giveaway

guest post by melody

so i am currently typing this post with one hand.
my other arm is full holding my chubby 11 month old while he nurses back to sleep. (so i hope you appreciate the hard work my right hand is doing while typing this post, haha!)

let’s just say my evening unfolded slightly busier than i had originally anticipated, but i guess that’s just what life is like with a toddler and a baby right? i love it. my goal was to have a post up before midnight tonight…so even if that means a short, no-capitalization paragraph, i am stubborn and will get it written!

enough about me…as a celebration for the birth of baby Lucan Fredrick (who was born this morning at home, in water! – more details forthcoming), i would like to have a giveaway for a mama bird’s nest necklace from my etsy shop!

you can enter your name up to 4 times:

1) write a note to kaitlin rose on the BBH facebook wall, letting her know how the BBH community has inspired/helped you. let’s just flood her with encouraging notes.

2) become a “google follower” of my blog at “ramblings of a lovesick mommy”

3) “like” the ramblings of a lovesick mommy facebook page

4) tell us how many baby birds are in your nest!

if you want your name entered all 4 times, make sure to leave a separate comment under this posting for each thing you have done (and just because i like to be specific, here’s an example: comment# 1-”i wrote a note on the bbh fb page” comment #2-”i’m a google follower” comment #3 “liked ROALM fb page” comment #4: “i have 2 precious little birds in my nest!”)

contest will end 3 weeks from today, july 21st.

now as you can imagine, my right hand is indeed quite tired, and my baby boy is quite asleep and my left arm is quite ready to lay him down.

good luck to all who enter, and once again…CONGRATULATIONS KAITLIN!!!

we all in the BBH community appreciate and are so happy for you! HAPPY BABYMOON!

enjoy falling in love with your sweet little Lucan tonight.


Melody blogs at “Ramblings of a Lovesick Mommy,” where she likes to record all of the adventures she has with her little family (which includes her husband and 2 sons, dog, 14 hens, and whatever lizards or frogs her toddler wants to catch that day). Her 2nd son was born at home, and the BBH community played a very encouraging role throughout her pregnancy.
