Hope y'all had a good Christmas and Santa or whoever hooks it up for the holidays got you everything you little hearts desire! My apologies for slacking on my bloggery duties. I have been so freakin exhausted and doing a million things at once it seems like.
I'm planning my long awaited and anticipated trip to Mother Maine. I'm trying to squeeze everyone in as much as I can. I wish there could be more hours in the day! I'm very excited to see my son's godfather Vano who I haven't seen in over a year (way too long), one of my best friends Hannah, my son's godmother/and bestest friend of almost 13 years (fuckin nuts, saying/writing that still gets to me ha), her fam and last but not least my beautiful older sister and nephew. I know there's other wonderful people I'll be seeing as well but if I don't I will most certainly see them the next time!
So yesterday after playing hookie from school on Monday Mr. Gavann came back and he's been teaching us makeup application which has been sooo much fun! So yesterday I asked him what kind of look I can do for the pictures I plan on taking in February. I think every girl should get maternity pics done. Idk about some people but I feel beautiful being this way especially knowing there's life inside of me. That makes it even more awesome. Mr. G also did my adorable friend Courtney. She's so cute and what makes her even cuter is that she thinks everyone else is so cute!!! I love her. She seriously makes me laugh every single day.
In other news, it's freezing here. I guess I don't have much room to complain considering that it IS almost January and there has been no sign of snow. I suppose I can manage haha! Weird winter smh...
I've also made an executive decision to not have a homebirth because of financial reasons (3500 buckaroonies is a lot of cash, cash that I could use for other things like a mamaroo!!!). I have a bad habit of stressing about things and the homebirth was definitely something I was constantly stressing over which completely defeats the whole purpose. As much as I don't really want to go to a hospital I have found a few in my area that do respect my right to go natural as well as having different tools to achieve that goal. Newton Wellsley is one of them. I'm really looking at that one.
The problem is...I've switched doctors twice already! Tomorrow I will be grilling my doctor about midwives because that's something I won't give up! But I want a good one. Not a shitty one like the idiot at Boston Medical Ctr. I also am going to write out a VERY detailed birthing plan so these mofos know that I mean freakin business and that I want to have as much freedom as possible when it comes to the birthing process/experience. I have high hopes for it and am still excited. I can still have a water birth and do most of the things I want to do. What it really boils down to is that I just want my kid to be born healthy and spry (hahah I love that word). I think that's reasonable, don't you think?
And in conclusionnnn, I have FINALLY completed my "very hungry caterpillar" cocoon for BamBam and I am very pleased with it. I can't wait to put him in it and see his little face peeking out of it! Maybe we'll even get pics of him in. Either that or those adorable little elf hats (which I definitely will be making myself that's for sure) I see in pictures. I think it all depends on what he looks like (I mainly base all of my decisions on that...his name, his first pictures, his "color" for clothes...everyone has a power color hehe)
Ok lovers, until next time Ciao Ciao!
(Ps I made that scarf in those pictures. I've decided I'm going to give them all names depending on what comes to mind when I see them. So for example, that particular scarf is called the "barbie scarf" Remember that shade of pink back in the 90's when Mattel ruled the world!?)
