Flat Peaches

Have you tried this funny-looking variety of peach? It's known by several names, including the flat peach, the donut peach, and the UFO peach. It has a white flesh and is very juicy!

I first encountered them at a grocery store a few weeks ago. As a general rule, I do not purchase peaches at grocery stores (call me a food snob, but they just don't qualify as peaches!!), but these smelled way too sweet and delicious to pass up. I was not disappointed!

You can probably also find them at a grocery store or farmer's market near you. Enjoy them sliced on cereal... or just in a bowl by themselves!

Flower Ring

A few weeks ago I made this simple little flower ring. I think it turned out well!To make one yourself...

You will need:
sheer fabric (organza or something similar)
scissors
candle
pearls or beads for the center
needle and coordinating thread
hot glue gun
ring base (find them at Michael's or AC Moore and use a coupon)All you have to do is:
Cut circles out of sheer fabric. For my ring, I used 9 circles. They don't have to be perfect circles, but they should vary in size. Hold the edge of the fabric near a lit candle so that the edges melt a little and curl up. Layer all your circles together and stitch through all the layers once to hold them together. Sew pearls or beads in the center and knot off your thread in the back. Adhere your flower to a ring base with a dab of hot glue.Have fun!If you're not the creative type, I have a similar ring for sale in my etsy shop!

Vera's Birth Story

I know some of you have asked me to share the details of Vera's birth story, and some of you will probably have no interest at all! But here is the unabridged version for those who are interested. It's a long story... but then, it was a long labor!

At my week 41 appointment, they scheduled me for induction (first a Foley Ball, then Pitocin) the following Thursday (August 19). I really, REALLY did not want to be induced, so I was praying HARD (and so were many others) that I would go into labor naturally before then.

I woke up on Tuesday, August 17 to find that I was starting to lose my mucus plug. I was excited, knowing that it meant things were starting to progress, but not overly excited, since I knew that some women lose their plug days or even weeks before labor begins. I felt tired and achy all day, similar to how I feel "that time of the month." I had lots of lower back pain. I continued to lose my plug throughout the day, but experienced very few contractions.

Around 7PM, I started to have regular contractions. (This was not unusual, since for the past several nights I experienced strong and somewhat regular Braxton Hicks contractions.) At 7:30PM, Tad suggested I start timing them. They were 2-4 minutes apart and were lasting between 30 seconds and 4 minutes each. The contractions were not too intense, and I could talk through them. I made sure they weren't Braxton Hicks by changing positions, drinking water, eating a snack, and walking around. Nothing changed their frequency.

Around 10:00PM I called my midwife to let her know what was going on. She said that it sounded like I was in early (real) labor and that I should continue to labor at home until the contractions were too painful to stand anymore and I could no longer talk through them (since I was planning a natural, epidural-free birth). She suggested I try and get some sleep if I could.

Tad and I went to bed at 11:00PM, but I was unable to sleep. As each contraction washed over me, I tried to visualize waves rising and falling. I could feel the contractions very gradually building in intensity. After about an hour of laying in bed, I got up and sat in my rocker and then at my desk for a little while. I headed back to bed around 12:30AM, but the contractions were intensifying and I suspected I might soon need to wake Tad.

At 1:00AM I decided I couldn't stay in bed any longer. I went out to the couch, where I was able to semi-recline and get pretty comfortable. The contractions continued to get stronger, and I began to softly vocalize (long, low "oooo" sounds) with each contraction. Shortly before 2:00AM I took two Tylenol PM's to hopefully take the "edge" off the pain enough so I could sleep a little. That didn't work. My body did some "cleansing" work on its own (I won't get into specifics) to help ready my body for labor.

At 3:15AM, the contractions were stronger, but still manageable. I found kneeling in front of the couch and swaying back and forth during a contraction helped keep me focused. I decided that I could manage the pain and that there was no need to wake up Tad since he was getting a good night's rest and I wasn't even close to needing to leave for the hospital.

All night I labored on the couch, vocalizing each of the contractions with long, low "oooo-ing." The contractions continued to build slowly, but I could still handle them. Around 7:00AM I called my family to let my mom know she could probably start driving down anytime (she lives 5 hours away).

Tad woke up around 8:00AM and felt rested. I was thankful he got a good night's sleep, since I knew things would be exhausting for him too. We ate breakfast and I continued to drink water. My contractions started to level out to 4-5 minutes apart, but they were consistently a minute to a minute and a half long and were gaining intensity.

Around 1:00PM we decided to head to my practice since I didn't want to be traveling in the car (an over 30-minute drive) in the later stages of labor. At 2:00PM I saw one of the midwives and found out that I was 3 to 4cm dilated and 90% effaced. She told me I could go to the hospital whenever I wanted to, but suggested I "hang out" in town for a little while longer before checking in.

I checked into the hospital around 3:30PM because I decided that I didn't want to labor in Chick-fil-A or walk around the mall while laboring. My mom had arrived at this point, and we were all settled into the hospital by 4:00PM.

During this stage of labor we all talked in between contractions, and I enjoyed listening to worship music that Tad played on his Nokia N800.

My contractions kept getting stronger, and I asked to be checked again that evening, around 8:00PM or so. They told me I was just 5cm dilated. I remember feeling overwhelmed at how slow things were progressing for how much work I was putting into it! I labored on the birthing ball as well as in bed, but found that the birthing ball was most helpful at that point. When they checked again at 11:00PM, I was just 6cm dilated. At that point I was very discouraged and wondered if I could continue laboring naturally for what seemed like an eternity more to come! My mom kept reminding me to just take it "one contraction at a time."

My vocalization at some point transitioned from "oooo" to stronger "ho" sounds. I thought I was pretty loud, but my support team said I wasn't that bad! I held Tad's hand through every contraction and he helped stabilize me and keep me focused when I would waver. My mom and Tad took turns rubbing my back.

I decided to ask for Nubane around the 6cm mark. I had hoped to only ask for pain medication if I absolutely had to, and it was a difficult decision for me to make in the moment. However, the dose of Nubane was exactly what I needed to give me some much needed strength and rest. While on Nubane I still felt every contraction, but I also felt like my pain was manageable. While the Nubane was working, I labored on my side in bed so I could rest more in between contractions. Time seemed to move so slowly. I would watch the clock and think that it wasn't moving at all! Around 12:30AM I believe, my water broke on its own. We were all so excited!

After the first dose of Nubane wore off, I labored on the birthing ball some more. I had another examination and they told me I was at 8cm. Around 2:30AM or so I got another dose of Nubane. I labored in bed during that time, and everyone except for Tad left the room so I could rest in between contractions. We turned off the worship music at that point as well.

When I could get up again, they finally convinced me to go walk around in the hall for a little bit. I think I was between 8 and 9cm at this point. When I came back in the room I began experiencing very intense contractions that seemed to never end. My mom was timing them and said they were a full two minutes long EACH. It felt like the next one started immediately as the one before was ending. I felt like I was having one constant contraction. I made intense, low, guttural noises with every contraction, and I felt a strong need to push. They kept telling me to hold off on pushing or I would put too much pressure on my cervix and actually slow things down. This time between 9cm and 10cm felt like the longest period of my whole labor. I threw up towards the end of that time, which was unusual since most people throw up in transition (7-9cm).

After what felt like hours upon hours of trying not to push, they told me I was just about at 10cm and was nearing the time to push. My midwife helped me get the rest of the way dilated, and then the pushing began.

I never thought I would push on my back. I always expected I would squat or stand or something. But with a nurse and Tad helping, I held my legs and pushed. My midwife was great at directing my pushing (she told me to push when each contraction was strongest) and helping stretch my perineum. Although the pushing was hard, it felt so good to finally be doing it! The time went by quickly for me. I remember someone asking how long I had been pushing and someone else said almost an hour. I couldn't believe it. It felt like less than half that time. During the entire time I was pushing, I was able to watch in a mirror. That helped motivate me, I'm sure! We could see her head and it was covered in lots of dark hair!

When my midwife called for the baby nurses to come in and start getting things ready, I knew I was so close to meeting my baby girl! It didn't matter how tired I was. I did my best (longest, strongest) pushing right there at the end. We were all shocked when our baby girl's face was up as she emerged. I think she must have turned face-up in the birthing canal. As soon as her head was out, the rest of her body came as well. I was surprised, since I thought I was going to have to work as hard to get the rest of her body out as I did for her head. (Guess I should have read the chapter on pushing!) I did not have an episiotomy, and I only needed a couple of little stitches a few places.

They laid her beautiful body up against mine right away. Those moments of skin-to-skin time were so precious. I think they cleaned her as they handed her to me, because it was as though I blinked and she was perfectly clean and red, lying naked on my chest (well, except for her little hat!). I held her and couldn't get over how completely beautiful she was. I was so deliriously happy. Tad announced her name to everyone in the room after a few minutes. Vera stayed on my chest for a long time before they weighed her. She weighed 7 lbs., 10.8 oz. and was 20.5 inches long. She nursed a little bit right away.

Vera Evangeline was born at 5:53AM on Thursday, August 19. I had been in labor for 35 hours, and awake for 47 hours. To break it down further, it took me 19 hours to dilate 4 cm, 9 hours to dilate from 4cm to 6cm, about 6 hours to dilate from 6cm to 10cm, and an hour to push her out! It was a loooong labor!

I would like to recognize and thank the amazing support team that I had while I was in labor.

First, Andrea, my friend and official family photographer ;) was there from 4pm Wednesday until an hour or so after Vera's birth! I don't think she counted on being there that long! (In my defense, I did warn her that I thought things were progressing slowly...) Andrea took all of the beautiful pictures in this post and we absolutely treasure all of these pictures of such a special time! She also kept me company in early labor, and was happy to go get more ice chips for me all throughout my labor. She also prayed with me at some point (sorry...the details are fuzzy and I don't remember exactly when that was!) and I know she was praying during the whole labor. Thank you, Andrea, for being such a great support!

I had wonderful nurses as well, particularly Katie, who was with me for most of my labor and delivery. My midwife, Carolyn, was also amazing! I couldn't have asked for a more supportive, encouraging midwife.

My mother was a HUGE support to me during my labor! With her living 5 hours away, logistically we weren't sure if she would be able to make it for everything. But God graced us and allowed her to be there for everything! She prayed over me as well and read Scripture to me during labor. She gave me the strength I needed at some of the most difficult points of my labor! I felt so privileged to have her there with me. Thanks, Mom, for your wonderful love and support!!

My biggest support was my amazing husband, Tad. He was so strong for me and I pulled so much strength from him. I know he was exhausted, yet he stayed so focused and involved in each contraction. He let me squeeze his hands until I thought I might break them, and he kept me from wavering and losing control. He was everything I could have asked for and more! Thank you, sweet hubby, for loving me and for laboring WITH me!

A few other random notes about the birth:
-We kept the room temperature around 55 degrees the whole time. Everyone else in the room was freezing while I was still sweating! I even had a fan turned on me as well (thanks, Emily... it was a lifesaver)!
-As I mentioned before, we listened to worship music while I was in labor. We listened to lots of hymns, Sovereign Grace music, and Indelible Grace. It was so uplifting!
-I wore earrings for my entire labor. :) I realized later that they were the same earrings I wore on our wedding day (pearl studs). I remember towards the end of my labor they were getting uncomfortable, but I felt like it would be more work to take them off than just leave them on.

This might be the longest post EVER... but I hope you enjoyed it!

Vera's Newborn Photo Shoot

I attempted to take some newborn photos of Vera on our front porch yesterday afternoon! In my humble opinion, I couldn't have asked for a more adorable or cooperative subject. It was pretty hot outside, so she stayed nice and warm even when "neck-id." She was asleep for most of the shoot!

Hope you enjoy the pictures!

Vera: One Week

My dear sweet Vera,

Happy one week birthday! I can't believe how much you've grown and changed since you were born. You are so beautiful, and I fall more and more in love with you every day. You've already passed your birth weight (you weighed 7 lbs., 13 oz. at the doctor's today!) and you are filling out everywhere. You're a great little nurser!I love your sweet newborn softness and your adorable baby hair. I love when your hair sticks out everywhere like a little birdie. I love nursing you and sharing special moments together, like when you curl up and fall asleep on my chest. I love to rub the soft little spot at the back of your neck. Everything about you is sweet: your lips, your nose, your ears, your toes...

You have such pretty eyes and I love it when you look at me. Your little baby cry is so cute! I love that when you need me at night you know that a soft little "eh" noise is all it takes to get my attention. You love to stretch and you are such a strong girl already. We have to watch you closely so you don't roll yourself off the couch or propel your body off our laps!

Your Daddy adores you too. He is so tender with you and loves to hold you and speak softly to you. He has done such a good job taking care of you and Mommy this week.

We look forward to continuing to watch you grow!
We love you so very much, little Vera!

Worth Repeating: Teens Want More than Pizza

I was recently reading a great blog post entitled "Teens Want More than Pizza." The post was written by a high-school pastor from Chicago, but it just as easily could have been written by my husband! (Their philosophy of youth ministry is essentially the same.)

The author's three main points are:
  • I cannot compete with my students’ culture in the area of entertainment.
  • I can offer high school students the real gospel of Jesus Christ—and they can handle it.
  • Growth happens not by entertaining, but by equipping.
He states:
Some youth pastors can keep up much better than I can. Still, even the savviest, coolest, most-in-touch youth pastor around will find himself unable to entertain students in a way that will keep them coming to his youth group. The competition is simply too stiff.
The gospel—the objective reality that “Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures,” which is received by faith alone—is what high school students really crave. The amazing (and constantly humbling) thing about continually offering the gospel to students is the response it brings. The response is not: “Wow, Jon, you’re cool,” or “That music was off the hook!” It’s actually a much more biblical response: repentance and faith in Jesus Christ. High school students crave the real, true, life-changing, not-watered-down gospel of Jesus Christ. Woe to us if we give them anything less. (Emphasis added.)

The Meaning of Her Name

As we mentioned way back when we were starting to look at baby names, meaning has always been very important to us! We wanted to share with you why we chose Vera Evangeline for our baby girl.

Vera
- Latin, "truth"

Evangeline - Greek, "bearer of the Good News"

It is our prayer that Vera Evangeline will be a woman of truth and character, and that God would use her to bear His Good News (the Gospel) to others.

My Dad's Favorite Oatmeal Cookies

My Dad (who reads my blog, and probably wants to know if I'm shipping him some of these...) loves oatmeal cookies. My mom has perfected this recipe over the years and it is absolutely delicious! I would challenge you to find a more perfect oatmeal cookie recipe. :) They are chewy and wonderful every single time! Even if you don't think you're "an oatmeal cookie person" you should still try these because you just might become one.

The recipe is SO easy to throw together, and if you have kids, they can help (especially with mixing, since it's best to do it with your hands). Without further ado... here is the recipe.
Dad's Favorite Oatmeal Cookies

3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
3/4 cup raisins or Craisins (or a mixture of both)
2 cups old-fashioned oats
1 cup flour, sifted with:
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 sticks butter, softened
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 tsp. vanilla

Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl. Add wet ingredients and mix with your hands. Form into balls using a cookie scoop. Chill the cookie balls that you aren't baking in the first batch. Bake at 350 degrees for 11-13 minutes. Do not over-bake! Remove from oven and let cookies sit on the pan for another 2-3 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool. Yields (around) 32 cookies.

Enjoy!

Fast Scrabble

Earlier in the summer, I posted about Dutch Blitz, a game that our family loves to play. I wanted to share another game that we also enjoy! It's called Fast Scrabble.

I'm not the biggest fan of traditional Scrabble, simply because depending on with whom you are playing, it can take a long time and get kind of boring. However, this "remix" is much more fun than the original! And, as a bonus, if you already have a Scrabble set, you can play it TONIGHT without having to buy anything special. If you don't own any Scrabble tiles, you can snag them on ebay or Amazon (use those SwagBucks gift cards you've been earning!). I just got my tiles "for free" with an Amazon gift card from SwagBucks!)You'll need at least one full set of Scrabble tiles, but it's a lot of fun to use more than one set if you're playing with a group of people (more than 3 or 4).

Start by turning all of the tiles face down on the table. Everyone draws seven tiles, and then turns them over when the game begins. The point is to form your own Scrabble-style crossword puzzle using the tiles you have drawn. (You follow standard Scrabble rules, such as no foreign words, no abbreviations, and no proper nouns.) As soon as one person uses all his or her tiles, they yell "draw two!" and everyone has to take two more tiles. At any point in the game you may completely rearrange all of your tiles and start over. This continues until all the tiles in the center have been used up. The first one to finish their puzzle wins!

This game has been recently marketed under the name "Bananagrams," but you don't have to buy a special set like that to play. Just grab those old Scrabble tiles you never use and get ready for a fun, fast-paced game with your family!

Week Forty-One

Yes, forty-ONE. No, I am not posting a picture this week. Really... would you?? I still look pretty much the same as last week... very pregnant, swollen feet, etc.

We are trusting God's perfect timing for our little one's birth, so we have chosen that I not be induced until absolutely necessary (the doc said that would be a week from today... so week forty-two). We would greatly appreciate your prayers that I would go into labor naturally BEFORE that time comes! I know every family has to make their own decisions about birth plans, induction, practitioners, and more, so I am not saying that this is the only way of doing things. It's just how we feel led to do things at this time and for this baby!

Our baby is perfectly healthy and passed all of the "tests" yesterday beautifully. She is active, her heart rate is high, she is breathing well, the placenta is working, there is plenty of amniotic fluid, and she is very cozy & content, apparently! They think she is probably between 7 and 8 pounds.

Here are some specific prayer requests:
-that we would continue to trust God in all things
-that our baby would continue to be healthy and well
-that I would not allow fear to overtake me (my mom had a difficult experience with Pitocin, so I have lots of concerns about being induced that way)
-that the midwife I have when I go into labor would be supportive of my desires to do things as naturally as possible
-that labor would start up naturally on its own before next week!

Thank you for your prayers! We can't wait to introduce our baby girl to the world!

Redeeming the Time on the Telephone

I try to redeem the time as much as I can during the day, and one of the ways I do this is by doing simple one-handed tasks while I am on the telephone.

While on the phone, you can...
-water houseplants
-put away clean dishes
-throw in a load of laundry or switch laundry from the washer to the dryer
-make the bed
-straighten ANY room of the house
-carry things from the room they were in to the room in which they belong
-put letters out for the mail/check the mail
-dust
-wipe down counter-tops in the kitchen or bathroom
-organize small areas you've been meaning to get to (i.e., a junk drawer or your jewelry box)
-and I'm sure there are many more!

Of course, you'll want to draw the line at things that are noisy or distracting (i.e., vacuuming) or require thought (i.e., responding to emails). :)

How do you redeem the time during the day?

Cloth Diaper Stash

I posted a little while ago about our plans to cloth diaper. I thought I'd share what we ended up acquiring for that endeavor!

- 2 diapers (a Thirsties duo diaper and a FuzziBunz perfect size diaper in x-small) that might be the first diapers she can fit into!- 10 bumGenius One-Size Cloth Diapers (and, of course, the inserts that go in them). These are the 3.0s, since I bought them before the 4.0s came out.
- 10 infant Indian prefolds and 5 regular Indian prefolds, as well as a snappi. The prefolds will be used with covers...
- 5 covers (top to bottom: one small Thirsties diaper cover, two Thirsties duo wraps with velcro, and two Thirsties duo wraps with snaps)
- Cloth wipes. I have 24 of these. Some of them are actually hand-me-down washcloths, and some are simple flannel squares. I need to mix up some cloth wipes solution using a recipe found here or here.
Not pictured:
- bumGenius cloth diaper detergent (1 box)
- bumGenius odor-removing spray (1 bottle)

I also have a couple bumGenius 4.0s coming my way soon.

We still plan on installing a diaper sprayer on our toilet.

We will keep you posted on how things go once we start cloth diapering our baby girl!

Confetti Salsa

I created this recipe last week in an effort to induce labor by eating spicy foods (no, it's not working yet...)! This salsa is KICKIN' HOT, so be warned! (I'm a girl who refuses to buy mild salsa, so believe me when I tell you this is kickin'!) Also, make sure you wear gloves when you cut up the peppers. I didn't know I was supposed to do this, and I actually got legit chemical burns on my fingers. Not so good. Feel free to adapt this recipe to suit your taste buds!

Confetti Salsa (aka, Get This Baby Out NOW Salsa)
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped
1 serrano pepper, seeded and finely chopped
1 red fresno pepper, seeded and finely chopped
1 orange Scotch bonnet pepper (not sure if that's definitely what it was), seeded and finely chopped
1 yellow Scotch bonnet pepper (not sure if that's definitely what it was), seeded and finely chopped
a few slices of white onion, finely chopped
a few slices of red onion, finely chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced (more if you like)
black pepper
salt
garlic powder
1/2 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 can diced tomatoes, drained
canned corn, optional

Combine peppers, onion, and garlic. Season with pepper, salt, and garlic powder. Add beans and diced tomatoes (and corn, if desired). Taste and season again if necessary. Chill in fridge (overnight is best), then serve with tortilla chips.Look at all those beautiful colors! Enjoy!
