The past month has been a little rough for me.
(read my most recent post, “I Will Give Birth at Home. Even if I Don’t Have a House” to understand why)
But suddenly, the shift occurred and it began to rain rather than snow.
I’m so ready for Spring. We’ve had such a snowy winter!
We also got the phone call we were waiting for and will be moving into our new (rental) house on April 1st. The stress is literally GONE. Yippee!
I am now able to revise and align my birthing vision with the new space we’ll be inhabiting.
(thanks again for all your well-wishes & positive vibes!)
Although we’re not expecting baby to come until late June or early July, I am already feeling the strong urge to nest.
Today, while making soup, I had this thought:
I love being a housewife, or better yet, a Domestic Goddess. This is my house, my family, my decor and my mess.
I love cooking. Man oh man do I ever! Thanks so much Grandma for teaching me both through example and your most delicious Italian recipes.
I love being a stay at home mom. I am grateful to be home with my daughter every single day. And I’m really glad I don’t have to work!
I love how much support I have from my family, friends and wonderful community for my upcoming home birth.
I love knowing we have a new home to move into (with a yard!). I am ready to begin the journey in this new chapter of our lives as a strong family.
I love my midwife & my doula.
I love that my beautiful partner Eric works from home. He’s sitting across the room from me on the couch working on his computer. We occasionally share sweet glances.
Speaking of support and family…how lucky am I that my mom, mother-in-law and grandmother help me out SO darn much by taking Ella during the week? The routine is so healthy for Ella and I, and I can actually get some things done for BBH and around the house! This will come in SO handy when the new baby comes.
I am truly blessed.
