Jack and I are both dealing with colds right now and I can't seem to put coherent thoughts together unless you want to read a bunch of whining. In the meantime, here are some interesting reads I came across this week!
'Big Baby' a Surprise for First Time Parents - This new momma pushed out a 13lb 2oz baby boy after only 4 hours of labor and 10 minutes of pushing. Definitely makes you think about the wonders of the human body and what's really "too big" for a vaginal delivery!
Thank You For Menstruating. Keep It Up. - An AWESOME post by a MAN about hormonal birth control and those seemingly glorious commericals telling women "there's no medical reason to have a monthly period". Oh. If only...
The 7 Foods Experts Won't Eat - The simple question, "what foods do you avoid?" was posed to people at the forefront of food safety and a list of the top 7 answers have been compiled in this article. I always wonder what real people in the know choose to eat and feed (or not) their families. This article gave me a peek into their world.
Considering Evolution and C-Sections - An OB discusses his take on how c-sections have and will contribute to the overall evolutionary picture of the human race. I don't know if I necessarily agree with his take or not, but it's an interesting perspective. I love anything that gives a unique view on something.
Let's Make Something Together - Lined Canvas Bins (From Diaper Boxes!) - Super cute upcycled project using a cardboard box. I don't know about anyone else, but I can never use enough crap catchers... I mean, baskets and boxes : ) around my house.
