I haven’t announced my “big news” here yet:

Unless you’re connected over at my blog Facebook page, you might not know that our Baby Boy has arrived, safe and sound.

This adorable little guy was born at home on April 7, at 2:14 a.m.



I was blessed with a beautiful water birth, just six hours of labor, and an amazing team of midwives and midwife student

My husband was my birth coach (he is AMAZING!), and this time I was blessed to have my sister with me during the birth, as well.

If you’re new to the blog: Caleb is our fifth child: third son, and our third baby to be born at home.

Yes, my hands are full.

My days (and nights) are full.

My heart is full.

I am treasuring this precious season with all my heart.

  5. Congratulations! We are expecting our third son in late August. 😉 We don’t have any daughters, though. I am glad your birth went so well. I am going to give birth at a local birth center, but would have loved a home birth. Just not really possible in this state. However, they do have birthing pools. We will see if feel like staying in it for the actual birth this time. ha
    I miss how you used to post more about your family and decorating, etc. So, it was nice to see a picture of your new baby. 🙂 Little feet are so adorable!
