Family updates

The Baby is doing great. He was as big at 4 weeks as #1 was at 3 months. He's still very much a newbie even if he doesn't fit the size. He's settled into a pretty good night time routine of every 3 hours or so. He sleeps by himself as often, or more, than he sleeps with me. He's beginning to smile at us.

#5 thinks he is one of the big ones now. He must accompany Daddy or Momma for outside chores or trips on the mule. If not, his feelings are terribly hurt.

The spring garden has been ripped out and the fall garden planted. We're gearing up to attend at least one farmer's market this fall. Planting gardens, propagating and potting plants and making soaps are keeping the rest of us busy. We made plenty of time to eat some good watermelon!

Baby bliss

My husband commented that it's been over a month since my last post. What can I say other than I've been in Baby Bliss.

The long awaited baby boy was born on June 14th weighing a whopping 9 lbs, 14 oz. (I think I have bragging rights for life now!)

In all his new squishy, dewy newness- ahhhhhh!
