Over the weekend, I was amazed to see all the little crocuses and green shoots poking up from the ground! Today it is snowing. Happy Spring!
On Saturday, Aunt Anne came to visit. She knows a lot about my family's genealogy and while she was here I found out that there is one known set of twins in my family history: my great, great uncles! Roy and Norman Goff, two of my Grandma Boas' mother's nine siblings, were fraternal twins. Apparently they did not look anything alike.
On Sunday, Brett and I went to a Meet the Doulas and Birth Professionals Day at Cradle in Northampton. It was a good experience, though very overwhelming. We walked around the small room which was set up with many different tables and we talked to each person. It was loud in the room with so many people talking at once, so we took a few breaks, and I even got a free 15 minute massage! While I was getting my massage, Brett signed me up for the raffle and when I came out, I had won! I chose a gift certificate for a free session of prenatal thai yoga bodywork, and though I'm not exactly sure what it is, it sounds interesting.
I think we learned a bunch about what doulas do, and Brett gathered lots of business cards. I'm glad we had the chance to meet many different doulas who work in this area. There wasn't anyone who we met that I felt completely comfortable with, but at least a few seemed very nice and I wouldn't mind talking to them again to get to know them better.
While we were there, I was reminded yet again how lucky I am to have such a supportive and caring husband. Brett really is amazing and I am so thankful to have him as a partner in my life.
