You've met my kids through their birth stories and our every day life stories, but I am going to take this opportunity (while they are both sleeping) to avoid cleaning my house and introduce you to my amazing family that puts a smile on my face and love in my heart.
I'll start at the bottom of the totem pole - so to speak.
Meet Indiana Jones
Meet Delaney Jo
Delaney, Laney, D, Angel Face - is just starting to get her first taste of non-mamma's milk. She really enjoys the smoothies I make (bananas, kale, apples, strawberries, blueberries), but I hate that she is growing up so fast, so I only give her some every couple of days. She loves to nurse, but is distracted easily. She is wearing 9 month clothes now and fits in the medium sized diaper covers and large sized cloth prefolds. She has the softest, cutest little behind that I can't stop squeezing. In the past couple of weeks, she has mastered the army crawl and has started to get her knees into it as well. She moves fast!
She does not like that I am a doula. In fact, she doesn't like that I am a human being who needs bathroom breaks. If it was up to her, she would put a diaper on me and super glue us together. She definitely is not a fan of me walking more than 3 feet away from her. She loves her Daddy (as long as I'm holding her, or am out of sight). She also LOVES LOVES LOVES her big brother Stephen. She just laughs at him all day long.
Meet Stephen Daniel
Meet my husband Michael
And....Meet me. Meagan Jo
A mom. A wife. A friend. A sister. A daughter. A doula.
I work hard, and I'm proud of what I do. I give a lot of love. More love than I ever knew was possible to give. And thanks to my family and friends, I get all that love back...tenfold.
I love my life.
