I’m so glad you stopped by!
I’m Poe, a thirty-something wife of The Man and stay at home mama to Munchkin. We live in the gorgeous Pacific Northwest. I love the beauty of the mountains that surround us and Puget Sound. Seattle is a short ferry ride away and makes for a great day trip. The Navy moved us ehre and we never want to leave. I grew up in New England and while I love the northeast, I can’t imagine living anywhere else. Thankfully The Man is no longer active duty and we can stay for as long as we want. In my free time (free time? What’s that?) I enjoy reading, sewing and blogging. On nice days we like to take the pups to the dog park to wear them out.
Munchkin is almost 9 months old. The Man and I are are delighted with her. She’s a cuddler and I just love it when she snuggles in. She buries her head in my shoulder and wraps her arms around my neck and squeezes. My heart melts and bursts with love all at the same time. I knew I was going to love her, I just didn’t know how much!
Motherhood hasn’t been the easiest transition for me. I love my baby and being a mom but I’ve been dealing with some postpartum depression. I haven’t shared too much about it yet, but I have shared how I’m still processing Munchkin’s birth and that my encapsulated placenta pills helped. The blog has been a little quiet but hopefully that will be changing.
We’re slightly crunchy around here (whole grain crunch according to this quiz.) We’re a breastfeeding, cloth diapering, co sleeping, baby wearing , baby-led weaning kind of family. We do these thing because they work for us. That was the best advice I was given while I was pregnant. Figure out what works for you and your family and do it. It doesn’t matter what other people are doing or what they think, do what works for you!
You’ll find that I blog about life here at Many Waters. I enjoy cooking so you’ll find some recipes (like this one for homemade teething biscuits) and menu plans. Munchkin shows up frequently. I also blog about my faith. I try to share some of my struggles as I can encourage others who are experiencing similar situations. It’s my life, messy and beautiful at the same time. It’s hard for me to pick a favorite post, or even a couple so I’m not going to try. My most popular ones are listed in the right hand column.
If you’d like to visit again you can follow me via GFC in the right hand column or on Bloglovin. You can also find me on Twitter and Facebook. I’m on Pinterest as well, where I tend to pin recipes for menu planning and crafts to make for Munchkin and things to do with her when she gets older. You’ll also find lots of photos of Munchkin on Instagram. I hope you’ll stay a bit and look around. If you have any questions, you can shoot me an email or leave a comment and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can!
Please leave me a comment so I know you dropped by and so I can visit back.
Thanks so much for coming by!
I’m linking up with 5 Minutes for Mom for the Ultimate Blog Party ‘13.
