ohmylord its been a long while since i wrote. a long road trip to california, my 31st birthday and trying to get back into the swing of things back home (laundry, laundry and more laundry)more doctors appointments for my baby, it feels crazy.

i didnt feel christmas this year. that is until we bought a tree (we would have bought a live tree but we are moving soon-didnt know where to plant it, etc. i said blessings and thank you for this tree) and it is beautiful. we decorated the house and it feels like christmas. our oldest loves the idea of santa and even though i thought i would not want to perpetuate it, we are allowing santas presence to come on in. christmas really is for the kids.

i came back bloated and foggy from road trip food and proceded to go raw for a few days. it is amazing what your body can do when you are eating living and easily digested foods. i find myself incorporating more raw foods into my regular diet now and i feel much better.

i chopped off about 7 inches of hair and am sporting a very euro style bob- i also dyed it blonde.

the endocrinologists want to see our baby in this week- she is growing length wise but not weight wise, really. she is a full three pounds less then an average 9 month old and i am worried but trying to put it all in perspective. i hope her tests are fine and she is just a petite person. we think the steroid shot stunted her growth.
on a positive note, the large divot on her face is completely gone and her eyesight is normal for the first time in her life, we saved her eyesight.

we know that portland is an amazing city, but we are moving. we are really liking the idea of cabo or somewhere in southern baja, someplace sunny and warm. we are going to write our business plan and make the next move. just for a few months. we most likely will leave in feb.

there are major shifts happening. i dont know what yet, but i know how i feel. its like i look around at my life and there are split screens in front of me. as i go through the motions and daily, neccessary movements, its like i can see myself other places to at the same time. this always happens before a major shift.

i will post pictures as soon as possible- my husband got a nifty yet high tech camera and i am not sure how to download pictures from it yet.

sending love to anyone who happens to peruse this blog.
