Ok, this baby is really slowing me down. I've developed back problems that are starting to have a huge impact on my ability to do the things I normally do around here. Seriously, I've never experienced pain like this before. It makes me cry on occasion (which these days, isn't that hard). Is this prepping me for what's to come? I'm hoping that between my massage therapist friend, chiropractor and midwife, I can figure this out and get some relief soon. I realize I do not have a back-friendly occupation, especially with this extra weight in the front but folks, I do need to make it to December and I'd prefer to not spend the time on my back.

The good news is that Jen seems to be much better off than me, so at least it's not 2 pregnant chicks who are way less productive on the farm.

And Nate? Well, I feel I owe him my life right now. He has picked up my slack and then some and I don't have words to thank him for his love, support and understanding. On top of our already stressful life 'stuff', he's handling it all so well. I got a good one.

Speaking of Nate, here he is with our cute little turkeys. . .

Here are some of my favorite moments from the past few weeks. . .

My sweet Midge.

More ducks!

Nate works on his baby while I work on growing mine. What's he building? Well, that's another post. . .


  1. So sorry to hear about your back...I think we will be stopping by the market today at the Mills!

  2. Sorry you're having so much trouble with your back. That just stinks!

    And Nate cut his hair!!!!
