Encapsulating my Placenta

FullSizeRender.jpg-2This may or may not be the post you’d like to read. There are some rather detailed photos if you’re not keen on blood, or organ viewing. Now that the warning is out of the way lets get down to business. Throughout my pregnancy I had always planned on consuming my placenta. This is far more common than you think! Some people make an art print out of theirs from the web of veins, others bury theirs and plant a tree over it. Both I think are lovely ideas! Others save a dried bit of the umbilical cord in a piece of jewelry. While I think that is cool, I also don’t think I’d wear it. 😉 —>

Our First Month with Red

fullsizeoutput_2ea2What a rollercoaster it has been! If you haven’t already read Redfield’s birth story, you can find it here. Things have been a bit crazy since bringing Red home from the hospital, to say the least. There hasn’t been much time to process everything, until now. Today Red is four weeks old! We are home enjoying the sunny Spring weather. But it took a lot to get to this day. Allow me to get you caught up. —>
