The Sprawl

Really digging the new Arcade Fire album. Maybe it's because of my (temporary) stint as stay at home mom of 2 babies in the suburbs. It's a slog. I can't imagine doing this indefinitely - my brain already feels like it's turning to mush. And I am not super patient or creative with a toddler. Fortunately the smaller baby sleeps a lot and is generally pretty mellow. Leaving the house is a big production and I don't have any friends with babies either and I am anti-social. Goal - go to toddler story time at the library tomorrow morning, maybe go to the park this afternoon.

Persephone was on the easy side of newborns but Morpheus seems easier. Or maybe I am just feeling better physically and more confident. Pretty much all of the baby stuff is fresh in my mind which is the advantage of having the second so close (13 months exactly) Breastfeeding is actually going pretty well so far, I have put zero pressure on myself to do it for any length of time and we're supplementing with about 1 bottle of formula a day - but so far Morpheus is taking to it quite well and I don't hate it. Labor was not fun, nor was the last minute transfer to the hospital - 8 cm ambulance ride because of decelerations - also I'm annoyed at the extra cost - a successful homebirth would have cost me only a $25 copay inclusive of prenatal care - hospital billed over $6000 for my uncomplicated, unmedicated vaginal delivery and healthy newborn - the insurance negotiated price will be substantially lower but still looking at costing us a couple hundred dollars. I love Group Health - no health system is perfect but Group Health has consistently impressed me with how helpful, respectful and evidence based their practitioners are. Online medical records, emailing your doctor, scheduling appts. online - amazing!
