Return to Raw

Today is Saturday so we will be off to Eastern Market in a few hours. Nathan and I have made it a goal to return to a high raw diet for the summer, so we need to stock up!

Nate is pretty much high raw right now, with only one cooked meal (dinner) each day. I am still eating mostly cooked food, mostly part of my postpartum recovery regime. I have found cooked foods to be very grounding and comforting during this time. But now that the twins will soon be 3 months old, I think I am ready for a return to the "raw until dinner" approach. Eating that way for the last couple summers made me feel healthier than I ever had before. It also gives me the freedom to bake without guilt! first mission today is to find the best price for we go!

The most ridiculous looking configuration, but it works!

Several people have asked me how I am wearing the twins. I haven't quite figured out a great and totally hands-free way to wear them both at the same time, although they are getting better head control so we may be able to do two mei tais (front and back) soon. For now, we are using a Beco Butterfly and a Maya Wrap ring sling, both on the front. It looks kind of awkward and I still need one arm free to support the baby in the Maya, but it works! I would like to try to carry both in one long woven wrap, one baby in a high back carry and the other in a front cross. But I still need lots of practice with that one.

Another beautiful day in the neighborhood

The last couple days have been so lovely, sunny and 70s. The boys love playing in the front and backyard, and the babies enjoy the fresh air. I'm trying to come up with as many summer activities as I can figure out logistically with two tots and two babies. I think I'm getting better at it, we've been getting out more and more.

The happiest baby!

Gus loves to smile. It's a beautiful, heartwarming grin that I just can't wait to see every morning!

Luka and his baby sister

Zora looks a lot like Luka did when he was a baby. She is starting to develop her own look now, but the resemblance is still striking.
