5 months

I realize I am extremely behind on blogging. I have so much to catch up on, and so little time to do it. Who would have thought that three boys would take up so much time?

I am only 2 days late on this post, so I thought it would be the best one to start with.
My little Connor is 5 months old. Holy moly that went fast. I have been somewhat slacking in the monthly photo department but I did get a 5 month shot with my birthday present. (a new lens) Oh ya, it's my birthday. :)

Connor is has a very sweet calm spirit. My hope is that he will be slightly less crazy than his brothers, but I'm not counting on it.

Connor has pretty much been a dream baby, besides not sleeping, as long as I don't eat dairy products. I started eating them about a week ago to see if I was in the clear yet, but he still doesn't seem to tolerate it very well. 

He's around 50th percentile for weight (16 pounds) and 90th for his height (26 inches)

He loves his binky, his blanket and his older brothers.
He also loves to snuggle. 
He can role over and sit up for a few seconds.
We sure love having him around.

A few months ago I wrote a post "Why I am obsessed with birth." Since then I have been involved in planning the Empowering Fearless Birth Event taking place in less than 2 weeks!

What is this you say? A feminist movement?

There has been some confusion about this event, so I thought I would write a blog post, just to clarify. We are not a bunch of feminist trying to take over the world. (Well not all of us anyway)
The EFB event is like a bridal fair, but for birth, and it's SO MUCH cooler. :)

When you hear the word empowered, you may think of this.

                   To equip or supply with an ability; enable

The goal of this event is to do just that. To equip families with the ability to have the kind of birth they want. Along with birth education, there will be nutritional classes, foot zoning, essential oils, healing from birth trauma, supporting others though loss....Why don't I just show you.

 WOW! Amazing line up, right?

Notice my name in there? :) I am teaching a class on photography tips. The lovely ladies in charge have given me 1 ticket to do a giveaway with!
All you have to do is leave a comment with the class you would be most interested in taking and share this post.
I will pick a winner on Friday the 13th!
As a thank you for teaching the class, I am also allowed to give a special deal for friends and family. $39 for a full day pass with a gourmet lunch included. (Price at the door is $59)
Just go here and enter the discount code "cararocks"
My discount will expire this Sunday! So grab your tickets fast!
Good luck!
