I agree with the colorscheme, but I am definitely biased against brown and toward BRIGHT color in the warm family.
I also think age ranges are a GREAT idea.
Anyway, I think by now you know I love you, But in case you forgot: I love you! This site makes me happyhappyhappy!
And, um, your rss button seems to subscribe to offbeatbride, not offbeatmama?! weird...

Don't trouble trouble until trouble troubles you. If you have a few (2 maybe) months to stay home with your baby, just sleep when your baby sleeps and you will be just fine, that is how my best friend survived her first few months and her baby was sleeping through the night remarkably early. (maybe this is the co-sleeping thing..idk I dont have a baby yet O.o)
That being said, I wouldn't be so worried, every baby is different and every mama is different. I am definitely a fan of telling people to shut the hell up (especially if you are already so stressed about one thing).
Also, do you have a midwife or an Ob? I am 100% a fan of midwifes and home-births. So much so that I am planning to BE a midwife as my career. (in like 10 years of schooling...lol). Seattle is a wonderful place for offbeat mamas because there are many midwifes, both Nurse-midwifes and direct-entry midwifes to choose from.
You are going to love having kids though, you are a very nurturing person (clear by how you run your tribe). If you do get an offbeatmama.com, you know I will be right there (even though Im still unmarried and still childless).
p.s. this post is a beautiful example of why you needed a new commenting system. I love it and think it works beautifully (especially because I use Firefox). :D
