We have had a fantastic and busy May so far! I've been enjoying the playgroup I started with two other moms. So far we only meet once every other week, but I think as we get more people, we'll up the number of meetings. I have also been going to the La Leche Leauge meetings, which are fantastic and I LOVE them. As most of you probably know, we have decided on extended breastfeeding, which means I'll be breastfeeding Zach at least until age two, possibly three.
I also had a meeting with an obstetrician to talk about future pregnancies. He thinks that once I reach my goal weight I should have as many more kids as we want! It's fantastic news, since we weren't sure I would be able to have more. The Dr. said that as there's no telling if I'll get preeclampsia again or not, but that my care will be very different next time. This is also a new doctor.
Elliot is getting a promotion at work, which includes a %6 minimum raise! He's such a great provider and companion. I am so happy we got married. I can't think of a more sensitive, caring and laid back guy. He and Zach are really starting to play together too.
Zach is so close to walking. I have been saying that for months, but he truly is now!! He's got a great sense of humor and is always laughing about something. He keeps me on the go though, since he likes to have a new activity every 15 minutes. He really enjoys being outdoors, so we often spend the afternoon at the park, or working in the yard.
I have decided to try and get the city to allocate a space for a community garden. It's still in the planning stage for me, but so far the plan is to get the support of the local garden club, then get signatures and talk to the city building and planning department. I may also attend the city council meetings. I think it would be great for the city to have a community garden where people and children can learn how to grow their own food. That's most of what I've been up to the past month. I have also been sewing a ton, but I think my old kenmore is giving out. Some of the knobs have stopped working. I may have to start saving for a new sewing machine.
