We have exciting news on the homestead! In April, our new baby homesteader arrived and since then all our time and energy has been focused on caring for this amazing new life joining our family. I wanted to share this news with you all well over a month ago, but this sweet babe has kept us so busy that I’ve not been able to be online much. The only reason I’ve been able to grab a few minutes to write this morning is because I woke up extra early (amazingly feeling slightly rested which rarely happens these days!) and our little baby homesteader is actually sleeping in for once!
We had an amazing birth experience which I hope to share in a bit more detail with you all one day. In a nutshell, we had a long labor but it resulted in our goal of having a VBAC (vaginal birth after a cesarean). We feel so blessed that by chance we had the most amazing birth support team to help us welcome our sweet little babe to this world. He arrived a whopping 9lbs 5 ounces! Both he and mama are healthy and we’re enjoying getting to know this sweet new addition to our family.
We’re taking a short “maternity break” from the blog and will be back soon. So for all of you who have sent us emails or messages on Facebook, we will get back to you eventually but please be patient with us!
