How is your week starting off? Things are busy around here. I think we may get the new apartment we applied for in Berkeley. I am not so sure about not being able to have my own washer & dryer in there. Or a dishwasher. Are those deal breakers?? Or should I be so happy that I won’t have to wash & fold any laundry for as long as we’re there? (The husband promised we can afford wash & fold service so I don’t have to take the kids to the laundromat for hours each week.) Anyway, here are some interesting posts that are worth reading.

Did you want an update on the Georgia State-wide nurse-in? Here you go!
“The proposed Breastfeeding Protection Act by the Georgia State-wide nurse-in group officially now has a bill number, a sponsor and several co-sponsors! Woohoo!

Mothers and their babies are often said to share a deep, intimate connection…but even so, this new discovery is weird. Simply by looking and smiling at each other, moms and babies synchronize their heartbeats to within milliseconds of each other. Researchers at Bar-Ilan University in Israel found….
Celebrity Moms in the news
Ok, I don’t think I’ve ever seen this woman on TV but I love her daughters dress and bow!
The pregnant mom I love to envy. She’s is crazy skinny & rockin’ a HUGE belly (for her size)!
And what do you think about these two? I keep waiting for something bad to happen. I’m terrible, I know.
Yay? Why do I sorta care about Jessica Simpson’s baby-to-be and not so much about Nick’s? Meh.
Love this mom! And look at her handsome little man. Almost makes me want a little boy.
Another one of my fav moms -

I appreciate this and I’m not even religious.
And your birth story for the day…
What happens when a woman has a surprise vaginal breech birth at home?
Surprise Breech Birth – Mama Birth
I love the ending. “A common cause of serious injuries from vaginal breech birth is aggressive measures used to deliver an entrapped head. My midwife knew how to deal with that exact complication and because of that, I have a perfectly healthy baby boy who just happens to be a little stubborn about how and when he does things. It’s totally possible I could have had one of the few care providers at my old hospital with the same skillset, but it’s more likely I would have had one who only knew one way to deliver breech: with a scalpel. Trying to shove Cal back through my cervix to deliver him that way does not sound safer to me!”
OK! Enough for today. Goodnight!
