Seven Quick Takes (no.2)

by Josée

1} Sweetpea is feeling better. I was worried when she was sick. She’s such a tiny girl, weighing only 17lbs at 16 months. She did lose a little weight over the last week and I’m working hard to bulk her up again. I’m a small person myself so I suspect that it’s only genetics. I sure wish my mom keep a record of my weight after a year to compare with Sweetpea’s. Note to self: keep a record of my children’s weights and heights. All in all, Sweetpea does seems healthy, happy and developing well. She’s just small, but I am going to get her checked out just in case.

2} There really is no point complaining about the weather anymore. If I pretend that it’s the fall then I feel much better. In the winter I give my children regular doses of vitamin D. I’ve started giving them some drop this week. We just haven’t been getting enough sun lately.

3} Tomorrow I’m giving a presentation on Natural Fertility Regulation (Natural Family Planning) at the university. I teach the Billings Ovulation Method. I’m passionate about teaching women about their fertility and helping women to see how beautifully and wonderfully made they are.

4} Hubby and I started watching the third season of Merlin. It’s great, once you get past the cheesy special effects.

5} I just finished reading The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society and really enjoyed it. It’s written in letter format and is about the people of Guernsey during the German occupation of WWII. I definitely recommend it, it’s a great summer read.

6} I received my package of preschool supplies from Catholic Heritage Curricula. I briefly flipped through it but I’m hoping to sit down and do a detailed review of it soon.

7} Coconut oil is sure yummuy! Tonight I used it to make flambéed bananas. Delicious! Do you have a favorite use for coconut oil?
