we did get a house it is a gift from the lord a house that should be falling apart but isn't a house that should feel small but feels huge a house with a double lot a yard with tons of mulberry trees so that once a year i can feel extra resourcefull picking berries. In march we had our baby Estella shalom She is a delight who is just starting to crawl but is desperate to walk. March 19 it was our first home birth we will God willing NEVER go back to the hospital. I was in such hard fast labor that I never processed that I was no longer in false labor. An hour and a half into contractions I was laughing on the toilet pushing a baby out.
I am working a little bit as a midwife just there for the birth of my best friend liz. She asked God for her baby for christmas so christmas day was spent birthing a little love into the world. Aralynn is two now and I don't know how she could nor always have been here she is a girl who will wear her dog shirt ( a pink shirt with a pug thinking about a cupcake on the front) 3 weeks straight but is scared of dogs. She is just starting to talk. Two is great.

We are doing a house church and regular church I have not figured out how to bring the meat of the bible to house church or for that matter what is the best way to bring children in?

Two months really not that long when you don't sleep but feel like your dreaming all day...
Aralynn 4 months old doing amazing things. Sitting in a jhonny jump up using differnt voice tones chilling through her first cold... She is consuming yet freeing.
Delivering more babies which is emotionally fulfilling. It is hard to get into the midwifery community here. Those that have been around are gaurded. I don't know why. I am ot planning on rating them out I am delivering babies at home to. That did not prevent them from being snobby. It is weird how midwives treat women badly. Most of you won't understand but there is this crazy thing where a women will get into midwifery because they have been hurt and want to help women. then passivly try to degrade them.
Robby is amazing like always...
We have been playing ultimate frisbee every sunday which has been really fun. I am going to start helping with a seventh grade girls bible study. That was a really unplaesant grade for me.
That is short but at least it gives you an idea. We are really wanting to go somewhere but have no idea where God wants us to go but maybe we will see one of you soon....

Our baby is beautiful, such an eye opener. i had no idea that when you have a baby how drastically your world stops, and another begins. I had hit a mini mid life crissi where I felt like I had accomplished what i set out to do and there was no more. I found a buch of art work from Wabisabi. On one was written "as you remeber the dreams that God has given you" Oh yea there is hope for the future God still has amazing plans for me. My perspective has dramatically shifted though. Life seems very short now.

Just looking at Andy and bea's blog and remember that we haven't blogged since all things good and wonderful have come to us! Our own Aralynn Isabella Cload was born july 14th at 6:33am and 6.3lb. She's quite perfect and super cute. I still don't know how to post pictures on the blog; Help! I've got a few pictures so if you'd like a shot that may send you into a jelious frenzy give us a a mail and we'll e-post them your way.
Our Aralynn is quiet but expressive for all nessesary things. =hungry, full, wet... we get little happy grunts and churps. Grace hasn't stopped finding new outfits for her making her supper fun to show off. She has dark hair right now( we hope it'll stay) and thick long hands a little like mine, A Grace smile I think and little ears like me. Straight amaizing; We sure love her!
In our last few posts Aralynn had a heart problem. we've given her a 24 hr. heart monitor twice now to see if its OK. we haven't got the latest results but last time there were a few missed beats but generaly good. We are still praying that it'll keep getting better.
Aralynn is New Song, and Isabella is consecrated to God. Her churps and such are super great beginings to living up to her name. We took her to her first blues concert last night. Gospel, traditional blues, and piano solo's.... Pretty great. (she only slept through most of it.) but I'm sure she's getting the rythem.

God has already started providing in amazing ways for my family. The body of Christ really going the extra mile. My mom called it sacraficial giving just the sound of that is convicting.
I have achevied cervical ripening and lightening right on schedule. The increase in contractions reminded me that we had nothing ready for labor no bag packed no small outfit for her to wear home. I think that is why God gives first time moms a heads up it reminds you that the pregnancy will not last forever even if you want it to.
I have been feeling horrid this last week It has been really difficult to even want to be with my family as it just feels so huge and there is nothing i can DO. I am going down tomorrow to spend the last week that my dad has at home with him. I have almost come to terms with Dad leaving it is like a two year mission trip He is a missionary at heart it could be good but mom and 8 kids that feels impossible. Last night i scoureged the bible for "I am with you" verses Truth always helps with perspective. Then today I opened up my e-mail to find a letter from Bea ( who said I was beautiful which was really good to hear after being wheighed at the DR's office yeasturday) and a letter from Shannon. They are on the other side of the world...God loves me... He really does want the best for not just me but my whole upside down family...
Life has been super climbing chimneys, trees adn even got back to the gorge! God continualy gives us work to pay the bills and play play play! Our baby will be here shortly and she's doing well we still are taking medication to keep her heart right so continue to pray for us. July 21 Lord willing whewhoo! anyway just have a second to say life is great and I'm heading outa here Grace is ready to go. Later later

We have been going down to my parents a lot this month as it will be the last time in a couple years we will see dad at home.
The baby is doing good not great but good. She has started a new thing where she will skip heart beats which normally I would not be super concerned about but given the circumstances I would much rather her heart sound perfect like it did last week. I am still stuggling so much with haveing a hospital birth I have had to put down a few midwifery books that had the very best intentions but were very anti-hospital. It is to easy for me to become bitter. I don't want our baby taken from us right when she is born, let alone taken from us out of routine.
On the other hand the client whose birth I am attending in a couple of weeks is awsome. Her youngest daughter calls me Nah-you a priceless rendition of Nadya. Every time I am leaving her house after a prenantal I am filled with a firey passion for midwifery. i don't know how I was able to wait this long to get back into it. God obviously has had the timeing worked out though.
My feet are swelling a lot
