My oldest wrote to the President to encourage him to talk to leaders about protecting elephants which are being heavily poached for their tusks. My younger daughter sent a picture of an elephant she had drawn along with the activist letter sent. We didn't expect a response from the White House but the happy face that came in from mail box was priceless.
Reaching out and making your voice heard when you are a small person is an amazing and gratifying lesson to experience.

As I grew larger with babe last year, I became less interested in writing and was just trying to keep up with the more important daily actions. With each pregnancy this happens. With E it was all wool work ( couldn't even look at wool) ceased and with my third I also gave up wool but this time all creativity including blogging stopped. Too many other daily rituals to work on. I guess I still kept busy but it never felt like I was getting enough done. Looking back on Autumn... I was however still doing tons and creating and growing a big boy.
October was full of halloween

Visits from the midwife
And finally one night in Dec he came after a very quick and beautiful water birth at home in the middle of the night. The midwife arrived and he was born. He didn't even wake the girls with his arrival.
He arrived at 2:04am and we went back to bed until morning. In our home on weekends the girls pile into our bed when they wake and on this morning we weren't there. We were down in the guest room. Around 7 am I heard the pitter patter of little feet upstairs. Then down the stairs the oldest came and into our guest room. Then she went to get the other two. As the sun was rising they met their new baby brother for the first time. Daddy woke to three little girls quietly gazing on our little prince.
Daddy and babe
Then Christmas came
Lots of lovin'
