A Very Nugget New Year
Well, hello there! Come here often?? As I sit here having coffee, listening to Louis Armstrong, and having breakfast with the Nuggets, I realized I’ve a few things I’d like to share with you today.
For those of you who don’t follow me on Twitter or Facebook (SHAAAAAAAAAAAAME), my sister delivered a healthy wee boy on Christmas Day. Grayson Kyle Buske is a lovely little guy, and was delivered via a successful VBAC. My sis and brother in-law (above) were champions, as was their amazing doctor (Dr Hartung—worth googling him). My friend Melanie over at Savvy Auntie asked me if I’d like to share my story of acting as Jennifer’s doula, so I wrote a brief post about it. Click the pic below to go visit and read—I’d love your feedback!! It was an amazing experience.
Looking for new baby gear in 2012? Stroller Traffic has put together at 2012 Buzz Guide featuring tips from their panel of experts, and I was happy to share a few products I am very excited about for this year. Mind you, these are just a FEW of the things I am looking forward to—it’s gonna be a big year, folks!!! Lots of stuff on the horizon!!!
I am also VERY proud to be one of the first to sign the Support With Integrity Pledge supporting breastfeeding moms. Much like anything regarding parenthood, breastfeeding is highly politicized and there’s lots of in-fighting amongst people in the industry, as well as amongst parents. There is no one “right” way to breastfeed. To paraphrase Melinda Olson, founder of Earth Mama Angel Baby: ‘If your nipple is happy, and your baby is happy, all is good.” Take a moment to check this pledge out and sign if you’d like! If you sign it, then share it!! Put it on your Facebook page! Plaster it on your own site! Tweet about it!!! Even though I can be a bit snarky and ridiculous, it’s all love from me!!!
Thanks for stopping by, and I will see you soon!!!
