Welcome to Baby Dickey! My name is Emily and I’m the mama to Baby Dickey… well, actually, now there are TWO Baby Dickey’s! Ryan is a 3 year old lil guy (Dec. ’09). He’s my smarty pants, my cutie pie, my goof ball, my sweetheart, and my baby boy. His birth is what set me on my journey for birth advocacy and women’s health. Rebecca is a 1 year old baby girl (Feb ’12). She’s my sweetheart that giggles when she’s sleepy and always greets me with a smile. Her homebirth was life-changing.
I used to work part-time as a human biology/anatomy&physiology college instructor, but am taking time off while my little ones are still little! Enjoying every moment (Well, most of them – the others are fueled by coffee.… and wine.) So now I work part-time on the blogs, part-time on the house, part-time as a freelancer and social media consultant, and full-time as a mom. HUH? Yea, I don’t know either.
My husband is an engineering nerd and the best daddy & husband ever. For real – he likes to cook and he does laundry.
Randoms: I could live on cereal and chocolate. I like to shop local, but am a Starbucks addict (grande non-fat no-whip white chocolate mocha, please). I love babywearing and cloth diapering and breastfeeding. I’ve jumped from a plane 12,000 feet up. I hate vegetables. I love to travel and my dream is Africa. I’m a miracle baby. I’m terrified of spiders. I have my masters in animal physiology and behavior. The best date night is chinese food on the floor with a rented movie.
Stick around awhile, check out some goodies:
