My little sister Cic posted some randoms on her blog, and I like the format… so here goes:
My Parenting Style: Remember last week when I was all about Babywise? Turns out I am not really… although I like the feed-wake-sleep cycle… that’s about all I really took from it (and that it’s ok to put Holden down during the day.) I wrote all about it on my Facebook notes, but it was a little too much for my blog… I just needed to get it off my chest. Apparently I am from the “attachment parenting” side of the fence (and proud of it). ;)
Christmas in March: Remember how I told you I lost 30 lbs in 3 weeks? Well, now my stomach reminds me of a certain Christmas time poem: “He had a broad face and a little round belly, That shook when he laughed, like a bowlful of jelly!” Um, my broad belly looks entirely like jelly… my friend Amy is right: having a baby makes things “soft.” (And I am NOT saying Amy is soft... she's a yogamama beautiful bod goddess!)
EC-ing: Have you heard of this?!?!? No seriously, have you heard of this? It’s like potty training for infants (“Elimination Communication”)… although, when Holden goes through 3 diaper changes in 12 minutes (yes, that too is part of his ‘routine’), it sounds tempting… Go to Diaperfreebaby.org for more info… talk about being in tune with the cues of your baby and doing the BEST thing for the environment. Is it really possible? Does anyone know anyone who actually practices this with their younglings? I am aghast.
Yoga a Go-Go: I am so excited for my midwife to clear me for Yoga again. I think it’s going to happen at my post-partum check up – just three more weeks! This also coincides with when I’ll start teaching a pre-natal yoga class at the Yoga Cottage in Midvale on Tuesday nights. The studio is offering a great deal right now… $20 for one week of unlimited yoga. I’ve got a coupon, so if you’re in the greater SLC area and interested, just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll forward you the goods!
And with that… I am off. But seriously, ECing?!?!?
