It’s been a quarter of a century…

I am now officially 25 years old.  It was my birthday yesterday, which I literally almost forgot about!  But ended up we had a great time.  I actually went out last night and Dylan stayed home and put Adrian to bed!  Not only that, but I didn’t get home until sometime around 3 am…a little crazy for me 🙂  I don’t think, in fact, I am sure I have not been out that late for at least 3 years, since before I got pregnant with Adrian.  Kind of crazy, but a lot of fun.  Dylan even put Adrian to bed again after he woke up in the middle of the night…what a superstar.

Today Adrian spent the day at my mom’s house while Dylan, Shanna, Dan, Will and I went floating the Clackamas River.  I have not been rafting in years, so it was a lot of fun 🙂  The weather was sunny and warm, the water was nice, we saw lots of trout swimming up, jumped off the rope swing, overall had a great time.  And Adrian had a wonderful time with Nana and Grandpa Ed too.  He slept in the hammock for over 3 1/2 hours!  He is definitely going through a growth spurt right now, I can tell he’s grown quite a bit taller in the past two months.

While we were nursing before bed tonight, Adrian says to me, (after almost half an hour of nursing), “mama, bring your milk in”.  It was very sweet.  Apparently the milk was starting to get low or slow or something and he wanted more.  How cute 🙂  We also got the first of our raw milk today.  We’ll start getting a half gallon a week now of fresh, unprocessed milk.  Milked that morning or the night before.  Cream rising to the top.  Wonderful.  This was actually the first time I have had cow’s milk in almost 10 years (not counting other dairy products or central America).  We’ll see how it goes on my body, but I’m assuming that since it is so fresh and not homogenized or pasteurized it should be fine.  After all, people have been drinking cow’s milk a whole lot longer than soy milk, almond milk, rice milk, and especially hemp milk.  Just one more step we are taking to get back to the basic roots of eating real food.
