Into the Third Trimester
Eleven weeks until red lentil's estimate date of maturation, earth day (seems so fitting :)). It feels like it's going by quickly now, and I'm feeling the pressure -- both physically from her moving all the time and also the time with trying to have our house done enough. We are all doing well and growing good! We're almost done with our 6-week birth class, which we have found to be helpful to make us feel more prepared and confident. And have picked our doula as well.
Naturally, as organic farmers, we not only care about our food but also about other products including the hygiene and cleaning products we use. So we've done quite a bit of research in picking out items for our baby that are non-toxic and eco-friendly. If you're interested in knowing what products we decided on, feel free to visit our amazon baby registry. In addition to those items, we've also found some great deals on used items -- a Keekaroo high chair, BumGenius pocket diapers and inserts, Maxi Cosi carseat, and a crib and changing table.
Anyways, we'd better get back to work on our house addition/remodel and farms prep. Here's the classic bump photos from 13-28 weeks.
