t h e m a y f i l e s is foremost a family blog, chronicling everyday life. Life including natural, healthy eating (with recipes thrown in at random), home educating (with ideas popping up sporadically), an attempt to homestead on .2 acres (with very meager yields), raising 3 of 4 children with a rare genetic disorder, and lots of highly personal family triumphs and failures. You may also find an eclectic array of musings on politics, exercise, sewing, emergency preparedness, backyard chickens, and religion. This blog isn't a campaign to glorify anyone or anything. Just simply a record.

We seemed doomed to uncertainty. With four failed attempts to determine the sex of Emmett we finally opted for the surprise. This little baby seems almost equally determined to thwart our "find out efforts."

No. That isn't a lovely orange jug of juice. It is urine. For some odd reason, I must have been extremely nervous for my doctors appt, because my blood pressure sky rocketed to 157/97 and on up. I assured them, this is not what it reads at home. I ended up at the hospital with pricks and draws and my lovely orange jug.

No news is good news. I feel this could be a blessing. If my blood pressure is up later in my pregnancy maybe they won't jump to bedrest, but give me some leeway.
