No baby yet! It’s driving me nuts, I was sure with Hazel that labor was imminent for three weeks, we are about on week three with this little one too… I was hoping by the time I did my next family update there would be a new addition but here I am twiddling my thumbs…
I’ve been having contractions for quite a while but nothing serious or real yet… My due date is still 6 days away so I am not overdue yet, I’ve determined I just have a couple ‘squares’ for kids who wait for their actual due date to be born… little rule followers! You would think a blood moon would have helped!
Hazel has started ‘school’ twice a week for half days. I really wasn’t planning on putting her in daycare but we have one two doors down the street and they walk by every so often and she gets SOOO excited to see them… we thought we would get her in there for the social aspect… because we have concerns about her being a bully :). Raise a baby with a Great Dane in a tiny house and they learn to just push things out of their way! She definitely rules the roost with Denver but seems to have better social skills, at least nicer ones with other humans… She’s a little awkward at times :). Several times we have witnessed her playing with other kids and then it will get quiet and they just stare at each other and she will go in for an awkward hug, she learned that from her mom! It’s adorable though! The first day I dropped her off and it was total chaos and she cried and I cried and it was so hard! When we picked her up she was still crying and they said that she didn’t smile once all day…
The second day she was very excited to go, she cracked a smile and made better friends. When we went to get her at noon the second day she saw James and I come in the door, looked right at us, said ‘NOPE!’ and walked outside! She did MUCH better :). Every day since then has been about the same, she is enjoying ‘school’
She has quite the vocabulary of both words and noises, she knows almost all of her body parts, animal sounds and will fake a lot of emotions. We ask for her angry face and it looks about like the image above :). I think she is moderately aware that he will have a sibling very soon, she’s seen all the diagrams at the doctor’s office and proudly announces baby to the poster with the creepy cut away belly and then grabs my belly… Still, I have no idea how I am going to handle two kids! It seemed like a good idea to have them 18 months apart! I think I thought she would be a little less ‘baby’ though! ha! We will survive, I’m positive… just not sure how yet…
Mr. T(iny) is a constant mover! He’s been nothing but really healthy at every visit, he’s head down, engaged active and getting pretty tough (right into my rib cage!). I had my last scheduled check up today, REALLY thought I wouldn’t need one scheduled out that far… turns out he’s still there, doing his thing! I’m ready for his arrival but not pushing things, he will come when he comes, we’re pretty excited to get to meet him! We’ve got everything all ready for him to make his debut! Just a waiting game now!
I hustled to get my eCourses done before he made his debut and succeeded! This was my effort to put together ALL the info I know about tiny houses for others. I was so extremely nervous to release it, you never know when things are going to be an epic failure and it’s tough not to think the worst… I have gotten some REALLY nice reviews so far though! They have been out just over a week and I have FIVE 5 star reviews and some REALLY nice words accompanying them! I can’t tell you how giddy it makes me to hear that someone else feels like I didn’t waste their time! I REALLY hope they would be beneficial so it’s great to hear feedback saying they were! Some of the nice words:
I have been researching off and on for months come to find out I could’ve just waited for Macy to release her expansive knowledge on tiny houses!! Everything is super informative, very detailed, things I didn’t even know I needed to know I learned about! I love the step by step lectures of all the important things you need to know that would otherwise take a lot of time to sift through article and article! Very well done! …
… Thank you Macy! For always being there for every question and person and for being such an inspiration for another woman who just wants to build her own little oasis her damn self.
Excellent, Informative and Wonderfully Presented
Where to start? I can’t say enough great things about this part of this course. Macy does a great job of covering the “unexciting” specifics that you need to know in order to accomplish your “dream” of building and living in a Tiny House!
I consider this a “must” for anyone who is intrigued by the wonder of this movement. Too many times, individuals are enamored by the hype and then jump in and find themselves “over their head” and quit.
A great place to start and hopefully see how all the details are important in order to build a safe and secure permanent living structure. Great job, Macy!!
Seriously happy with how that is going, I never intended to put out eCourses but with James’s encouragement I did, I am stoked at the process and the reception so far! If you are interested you can find them HERE, I really do hope they answer the big questions and of course I am around to help answer anything they may miss!
Denver Dog stopped his hunger strike, weird dude stops eating when its too hot or too cold. He’s probably put on 15 pounds in the last three weeks, thankfully, and doesn’t look malnourished anymore! I found some tricks to get him to eat his food when he doesn’t want to (he likes the EXPENSIVE canned dog food… the cheap stuff will not do! )
Here are some of the family outings since the last family update, in no particular order:
