Missing Midwife

Well, I have just discovered that the midwife that delivered my babies is no where to be found. She isn't at her old office and the office doesn't know what she's doing. I called the birth center where I had the children and they haven't heard anything from her either. I'm really upset by all this! She was such a wonderful and special person. She worked really hard for all the women that were her patients. She wasn't just good with you when you were pregnant, but she was good to you all the time. I am supposed to have my yearly check up in August, and now I don't know where I will go. I guess it doesn't matter if I don't see a midwife because I'm not planning on any more babies, but I just like the personal care that you get from a midwife. They care about you as a person, not just a patient. It's really disturbing to me that my old midwife would leave her practice and not let anyone know where she went. That's just not like her. Debbie Newton are you out there? We miss you!

Time Goes By

Well I celebrated my birthday this week. It's amazing how time flies by as you get older. I remember when I was little it seemed like time just creeped by and now, where does it go? My daughter is 4 1/2 this month and it just seems like I was finding out I was pregnant with her. I also realized the other day that my son is now the age that my daughter was when he was born. She was definitely more grown up at 26 months then he seems to be. I guess the old saying that girls mature faster is true. I can't imagine having a baby right now. My son is so jealous of my nephew. When I hold him my son is right there wanting me too. My sisters little boy turned three in April and I know she's debating about having another baby. I wish she would. I think her son needs a sibling. Ilove to watch my two together. Sure they fight sometimes, but the moments when they aren't fighting are priceless. Anyway, time just keeps going on by so I better enjoy every moment!
