A lot has been happening lately around the hive! First off, I finally finished my doula certification courses and received my certificate in the mail. I am so excited to start this new journey and I’m just really proud of myself for getting out there and just doing it. I’ve been interested in natural childbirth since I had Marli naturally in 2009 and since then I’ve become obsessed with The Farm, doulas, and all of the wonderful (but what I like to call secret information) about birth that most women aren’t aware of. Becoming a doula is so important to me because it’s a way for me to educate women on their options, to help advocate for them, and to be their for support of all kinds during the birthing process. It just feels like pretty powerful stuff and I’m thrilled to take part.
Speaking of birth, Miss Marli recently turned six years old! I can’t believe it! We spent her special day at the American Girl doll store and had a special dinner before getting fro-yo! We have a tradition where we let her pick out her birthday gifts and this year she decided on a guitar and an alarm clock, how very grown up of her! Since then Jared has been giving Marli mini guitar lessons and shes been practicing her chords and naming all of the parts of her guitar. I can tell that she already has the musical gene just like her dad.
