Room With a View

My baby is six months old. In her short life she has already lived in two small mountain towns and in three houses. Mama’s always harping, “You have kids now, when are you going to settle down. For crissake’s they need STABILITY!” Hey, it’s her gypsy blood in the family; not my husband’s nor my father’s, so I think she could be a bit more embracing of her roots! So here are pictures of views from our last three places of residence. We may be tirelessly on the move but God’s never depriving us of natural beauty!

Rio Grande valley looking west during a July rain storm. (This was the house in which my daughter was born. You can read all about the birth story on the post, ‘May Baby.’)

Looking south during a striking October sunset.


Looking south from town towards Wahatoya, the west peak of two towering summits. In the Ute language, Wahatoya means “breasts of the earth.” A good location to be nourishing my babies with breast milk!

    That’s beautiful! Southern Colorado is lovely, it’s been awhile since I’ve been out that way, though we’re out in NM usually once a year. God painted beauty across the world, but I think he may have done some extra brush strokes on the Rockies and SW 🙂

      Indeed. If you’re ever in the area we’d love to have you and your family over for dinner. We are not too far from NM.

    I finished May Baby, all the while remembering our five births [40 plus years back]. Your delicate descriptions are right on!

      Oh Anna, I love you! I miss your delicate PRESENCE and your thoughtful way of communicating. I hope you and Ron are doing well (in TX I presume) and that you get a lot of Christmas time with your precious new great-grandbabies.

      Yes, these mountains have spoken to me for a long time, and now I get to live in their cradle!

    What lovely places you have taken your little one to live. You definitely chose a perfect place to nurse your baby. 🙂 Beautiful post.

      Without a doubt it has been God’s leading ever since we were married in 2013. Thanks for reading, LuAnne.

    Hope you are all well. In my experience, babies go with what is happening as long as they have regular milk and cuddles and their parents are happy. Older children worry more about breaks in routine, changes in school etc. From that point of view, it’s easier with babies and small kids as long as the moving doesn’t stress you out too much.
