Déjà vu

Here are all of the random things that have been going on lately:

First off, I'm really sorry I've been so bad about posting lately, but things got entirely messed up when the person who was supposed to be coming to live with us bailed. What a disaster! So we're still looking for someone to come and live with us...preferably someone who is honest and won't run away without saying goodbye.

As for the déjà vu, I have mastitis. :-( At the moment it doesn't seem to be as bad as when I had it with the twins, but it stinks nonetheless. I'm on antibiotics and will be taking tylenol round-the-clock to keep the chills and aches at bay. My mother-in-law is here this week, so she's a bit help and is teaching the twins to whisper because I'm not feeling well. It's super cute.

I finished my microbiology class on Tuesday evening, so I'm officially done for the summer. I'm almost 100% positive that I've pulled off another A, so I'm one class closer to valedictorian. :-) If I become valedictorian in two years, I will make sure that someone video tapes it so I can show you my speech.

I took my doula training class last week, so now all I need to do is attend births and I can get certified!! So if you live in the Boston area and are pregnant, get in touch with me so we can work together. :-) I have a whole doula bag full of labor supplies, and I'm also in the process of becoming Hypno-Doula certified with Hypnobabies. That means that I will be certified to work with women who are doing childbirth hypnosis of any type.

Tzipora had a visit at the Harvard Developmental Research Lab yesterday where they put on this cool electrode hat to measure the electrical impulses on her scalp while she watched a video screen. The study has to do with numbers and how infants process them. Isn't she a cutie?

So, now that you're all updated on my world, what's going on in yours?


  1. She looks so adorable!

    Totally lame about the person who bailed on you. I despise when people do stuff like that.

    Things in my corner of the blogosphere have picked up significantly since the spring, and I'm hoping to keep it up. Other than that, Ginny is growing like a weed and summer is flying by.

  2. I love, love, love the pic, super cute!

  3. You are really having a ton of problems getting someone into your house. Have you considered an older person? Maybe your rabbi's wife could suggest someone.

    If you never tried taking a disposable diaper and filling it with really hot water and laying it on your boob when you mastitis, it feel AMAZING. And does not drip because diapers are absorbent and holds the heat for a long time. Feel better soon.

  4. First of all, belated happy can kick me for being so late in wishing you the same.

    Also, I think Tzipora looks like a little sea creature all covered up like that...:-) Will they tell you what they found?

    Did an intended babysitter bail out on you? I hope you find a new nanny soon.


  5. Happy birthday and blogiversary to you!
