Naomi and Caleb, best friends already.
No seriously, Naomi just adores her little brother. It is more than I could have asked for. I fully expected this once only child-princess crazed three year old to be just a stab jealous of her ultra cuddly (and a bit more demanding) brother. Instead, she rubs his little head and talks to him in "baby talk" exclaiming "he's so precious' and "I love my brother!" My heart melts.
Latest news: because it is June and my last post was February:
We switched out the Michael Jackson Cd in our car to ABC Bible verses. When Naomi started requesting "Dirty Dianna" I realized there was perhaps something more wholesome I could use to influence her little sponge of a mind. Now instead of singing "I've got the stuff that you want, I am the thing that you need..." we bop to "be kind to one another". Go mom!
Our Third Studio (Yes! Health and Wholeness is expanding!) is taking FOREVER. Apparently, in property management speak, June means September.
I learned the key to roasting a perfect chicken is 400degrees and a stabbed-lemon stuffed in its cavity...350 was not cutting it.
Homemade popsicles are wonderful with coconut milk! My latest fav, Mocha pops!: 1 can coconut milk, 1/2 cup cocoa, 1/2 cup maple syrup, 1TBS honey and a splash of that mornings decaf coffee.
Coconut oil may work as a natural sunblock for dark skinned people in India who have been working in a field since they were 8years old, but not for my ultra pale-havn't seen the sun since last September-husband, who got extremely sunburnt because his wife insisted "honey! I read about this, in India, they..." Poor guy.
Oh, and I went to a natural dentist for a cleaning (amazing!) and a quote as to what it would cost to get all 9 amalgam fillings (yes, my childhood dentist retired at age 35 because of me) removed and replaced. It will be expensive, but not nearly as bad as I imagined. Will be well worth it. I do the procedure after I am done breast feeding Caleb. The mercury can be released into your system, and they require a major blood detox after the procedure. Go detox! THAT I will blog about for sure!
Camping trip coming up in July.
...and that is about it folks...I realize now why there has been no posts since February.
