We are moving!

We are moving!

Charlotte, North Carolina, here we come!

Ever since we found out Baby Schwartz is on the way, we’ve been doing some hard thinking and praying about our career plans and life in the next 9 months (now down to just 5 months left til baby arrives!).  God has definitely been guiding us.  Pieces of life’s journey have been coming together for us week by week.  I am very excited.  Dave is SO excited!  And yes, we’ll be moving to Charlotte, NC the end of this month! :)

We’re planning to take a little career detour.  Instead of jumping right in to opening his own practice in North Carolina right away this fall, which was our original plan, Dave will be going to work within a Maximized Living clinic in Charlotte for some time.  This is a huge blessing, because while he will have his own client base, we won’t have to stress about the cost of opening a small business right away, the same time baby is due to be born.  I am so happy for Dave, my Dr. Dave.  :)  He still gets to live out his dream as a Maximized Living chiropractor, transforming and saving lives every day.  It’s going to be great!

Here is the shocking part.  I’ll be taking some time off from working.  I’m a little nervous about this, because I’m usually the type of person who has two or three jobs going on at once along with little projects.. I’m worried I might get bored.  But at the same time, I’ve got a stack of baby books to read, need to catch up on yoga, and need to nail down a daily routine for practicing my birth affirmations and relaxation techniques.  Honestly, I haven’t been able to commit enough time every day to myself and baby that needs to happen for a safe and peaceful birth.  So all in all, I think this will be a good thing for all three of us.  Happy wife, happy life, right?  ;)

I’ll still be keeping up my website tho, and I’m sure the relaxed schedule will allow for some tasty recipe creations in the coming months!  And consults, I’ll still be able to do those, too.  Feel free to contact me if that is something you are interested in.  We can arrange a time to meet or Skype/talk via phone.

So this is our latest big news.  Wanted to share, as my posting might be a little sporadic here in the coming few weeks until we get settled in Charlotte.  If any of you are from the Charlotte area, please please email me!!  We don’t know anyone the area, let alone NC, and would love to talk to you!

And had wanted to post a baby belly pic today, but camera is in need of a charge.  We snapped one today — entering week 19.  Belly is getting bigger every day it seems!  Dave says I still look tiny, but let me tell you, I feel big.  It’s just so exciting to have a little person in there!  :)

Hope you all have a fabulous rest of your weekend!  Blessings!

Update #2: We’ve Got Teeth!

Well, a little extra praising to God is in order, as we made it through the first round of teeth.  Thank you to everyone who wrote in with natural teething relief ideas.  I reallllly really needed to hear your stories of similar situations and the empathy helped me make it through last week.  I liked the creativity in your methods, and definitely learned a few new tricks!

Austin popped out both middle bottom teeth last week after a couple days of misery for all three of us.  I then spent the remainder of last week catching up on backed up laundry, dishes, and other housekeeping.  Finally getting life back into the little routine I had going for us.  Ready to get back to our regular afternoon walks starting tomorrow!  We used to go every afternoon, walking in to Dave’s clinic for our adjustments then back home in time to make dinner.  I missed the quiet time in the fresh air.  It’s like my anchor every day.  It’s some ‘me’ time even having A with me.  So looking forward to tomorrow’s outing!

Out for a walk last month.

 

If it’s a really sunny day, you’ll see Austin sporting his shades on our walks.

Oh, and did I mention I started a little garden on our apartment deck?  I’ll have to show you what we’re up to over here — my first attempt at anything besides herbs (and usually my herbs die.. I’m not much of a green thumb).  We’re using 5 gallon buckets to grow a few different veggies.  So far so good!  More to come on that adventure!  Learning as I go, but so excited to grow our own produce!

Well, a short update is better than nothing.  I wanted to share more, and hope to fill you in on my plan for spring cleaning tomorrow or so (30 Days of Green Spring Cleaning)!  Now, I must crawl into bed.  If I don’t sleep while baby sleeps, who knows if I’ll ever get any sleep again!

  1. Gosh he is growing, what a happy baby.

    Regarding teething stuff I have heard a lot of mammas have good results with Cell Salts, which are in the homeopathic teething stuff but some kids benefit from a higher dose.

    Basically cell salts are a homeopathic remedy but they act more nutritionally to help the nutrients become more bioavailable to the body. Interesting little things and I have had good luck with them for other issues.

    This site has good ones, better quality then the Hylands. They do contain a teensy amount of lactose.

    I think if teething is an issue calc phos is the main one recommended, 5 phos is also really useful. (mag phos is for pain, ferrum phos for inflamed gums, kali phos if the pain is radiating to the ear, nat phos if the saliva is burning the skin) Also could try their version of the teething tabs.

    Anyway, good luck :)
