Baby News!

Hey, everyone!

Surprise! Our newest addition made his debut last Friday, February 24th!

HE (yes, another boy!) weighed in at 8 lbs. 5 oz. and is perfect in every way (as they all are!).

For anyone wondering, "Hey, what happened to mid-MARCH?" - yes, this little guy came super-early! Our first 37-weeks baby. But he is perfectly healthy with no prematurity issues, and we're thrilled to have him here.

Update on my blogging break:

I am still on a long-term (possibly permanent) blogging break, but I will be stopping by (sometime, not soon - life is crazy!) to publish two upcoming posts:

  • Baby's birth story
  • This pregnancy's nausea and vomiting update

I miss blogging very much, but I have also been convicted that not blogging is where I need to be now. I am also working intensely on keeping my internet time down to 20 minutes a day, and I have already seen incredible blessings from this discipline.

I have so much in my life that needs hardcore work - my parenting abilities, my home, development of my homemaking skills. Blogging (and the internet in general) was just sucking too much of my time and energy. 

In the meantime, I am still answering blog emails and blog comments, so you can always reach me when necessary! I think of you all, and I love corresponding with those of you who are able to do so. Feel free to reach out when you need me, or have prayer requests!

I will publish baby's birth story soon... or at least within the next half-year! 

Love to you all!


  1. I totally look forward to reading it when you get it written. :)

    Congratulations again! He's just beautiful. :) <3

    1. Hopefully that will be before his first birthday!! :) Thanks again, Anne! You're too sweet. :)


  2. Congratulations!!! He came 4 days after my little guy! 💜

    1. Michelle, CONGRATULATIONS!!! I have been checking your blog for baby news, but didn't want to bug you to ask. I'm so happy to hear your good news!!

  3. And I love your internet discipline. So good. I've gone off Facebook for Lent, but maybe when I'm back to it I'll incorporate a similar time restrain for myself. *I* feel so much better when I'm not on the computer much. I really think it affects moods/hormones.

    1. Amen to that. When I'm on the computer too much, I just feel dreadful. It's so addictive, yet so depressing! I've backslidden a bit during the postpartum period, but I'm determined to keep going with the project of disciplining my internet time. My timer is a blessing, because otherwise I get so sucked in! :)

  4. CONGRATULATIONS!!! I have been keeping you and baby in prayer for a safe delivery. So glad to hear the happy news!!

    1. Hello, my friend! Thank you so much for the prayers!! We are enjoying the little chap greatly. Thank you for your sweet words! :)


I love to hear from you! All kind and thoughtful comments will be published; all inconsiderate or hurtful comments will be deleted quietly without comment. Thanks for visiting!
