I'm a proud wife and Mama. My husband and I are both music teachers. I enjoy teaching Elementary, but am certified to teach k-12 (as is my husband.) My husband currently teacher 3-12 grade vocal and general music.
With my son, I was induced due to toxemia. My bp was so high I wasn't given a choice regarding epi. I ended up sleeping through most of my labor. Pushed for 10 min, and had a beautiful baby boy. Silas didn't cry when he was born, and was wisked away to Dr's who quickly sent him to NICU at Children's hospital. He stayed at Children's until July 22nd. Sy guy didn't open his eyes until July 21st, 1 day before we left childrens. He was diagnosed with respiratory distress, and they say keeping his eyes closed was his coping mechanism. He was born weighing in at 7 lb 10 oz. 21 inches long.
My daughter was also induced. I was not diagnosed with toxemia, but my blood pressure was 156/117 the morning they induced me. She was 36 weeks on the dot, but was born prim and perfect at 6 lbs 11 oz 20 inches long.
We cloth diaper at home, but use sposies when we are out and about. We don't co-sleep, but we do vaccinate. We use as little plastic as possible. All of our food is prepared in glass, and we try our best to do everything in our power to be good parents.
Love makes the world go 'round.
We love Jesus.
