So I am first honored to say that I get to be a mom again, to a little heaven-sent miracle. And no, I am not a dreamer, I do have kids already. I know what I have coming, but for now, I will focus on the beauty of this, (later on the diapers and teething).
If you read my WAPF story, you know that the last two of my children were born under somewhat stressful circumstances for both my husband and I. So we are most looking forward to receiving this child into clarity and peace...well, as peaceful as 1300 square feet with 6 people can be! I am considering (with much prayer and research) having a home birth and will be excited to share our decision and journey with you. (I also have a really exciting guest post coming from LittleOwlCrunchyMomma on why she chose to have a home birth.) I am most interested in her story because she chose to do so on her first child, and I know I was a nervous wreck about my first. I think I was at the hospital before I even had contractions!
On the topic of the GAPS diet, which I have been most recently writing on, my family is still plugging along. With the queasiness, my husband has been taking care of most of the meals and we have kept things really simple. Just meat and veggies, lots of broth and pro-biotic foods. My husband is really feeling great. His sugar cravings are gone, and those he sort of has he can usually take care of with a apple dipped in peanut butter. I must admit that I would love nothing more than to have a pack of saltines, but I am being strong...well trying to anyway.
I am also looking forward to sharing a post a friend of mine wrote on how much the GAPS diet helped her son who was diagnosed with Aspbergers, Bi-Polar and a host of other things. She has been my biggest advocate on this journey.
For now, blessings to you. I am very thankful for anyone who takes the time to read my words. I have been picking up some new readers and it never ceases to amaze me that you all are out there.
Love and Butter,
