So glad that this site and you wonderful people are here! My husband and I just moved here from Baltimore this week with our sweet ten month old girl, Lilly, and our Husky, Maxx. We have tried to consciously and mindfully raise our child with her best interests at heart. We are an extended breastfeeding family and a co-sleeping family (that was sort of by default - no other way to get sleep for a while there). We buy organic as much as we can afford, and practice aspects of attachment parenting. We hope to get back to cloth diapering once we have access to our own washer and back to organic/companion gardening once we have a yard again. We are currently in temporary housing in the Pineville/Charlotte area. We are looking for a family friendly, yet slightly funky (or at least holistic friendly) community to buy a house ASAP. Suggestions are appreciated! I have a couple other advice requests, but I think I'll post them in the other discussion areas. I look forward to meeting people soon!
