What is wilson silverleaf? We're organitarians; it's best for our bodies and the planet. We cloth diapered Nina for the same reason. We drive a hybrid car & wish we could afford solar panels on our house. I'm a strong advocate for homebirth, full-time mom, & also a movie junkie. We don't have a tv though; we watch dvds on our computer. We love contradancing. I garden & knit; Larry's a puzzle lover & plays fantasy football.

We have evolved a wonderful sleepytime routine; I love it. First, bath with papa, then I get Nina out of the bath and take her into her room. As I'm drying her off, I ask if she wants a massage. If she does, she says "saaje" (or however you would spell massage if you left off the "ma" part). She didn't want to be massaged for about 6 months and all of a sudden she is enjoying it again. Then I get her into her jammies and Larry comes in. Sometimes they read a book and/or brush teeth, and then it's time to kiss all her dolls and stuffed animals goodnight and put them to bed (on the bookshelf). Larry came up with this and seriously, it's soooo cute! Kudos to Larry! Then it's time to kiss mama & papa, nurse for a few minutes, then into bed. When I put her blanket over her, she grabs a corner of it and pulls it forward and wraps it under her. Sweet dreams.
