As you may have already guessed… we didn’t end up live blogging the birth… I promise that I will post a birth story as soon as I have it written down, but with a labor short enough that even the midwife missed the event – I hope you won’t feel too left out that the blogging world missed it too!
In any case, I wanted to post an update for everyone. Stephen was born on the 19th in the afternoon (his grandpa’s birthday!) and he is doing absolutely wonderfully. He has nursed like a champ from the beginning, no pain or soreness at all! With Evangeline it took over a month to get to a comfortable point. When I think about it, almost everything is different this time around. They are both equally enjoyable and lovable, but definitely unique! I suppose if you know one baby you certainly don’t know them all.
We are looking forward to learning more about our Little Man as he continues to grow. Evangeline is doing marvelously with her little brother. There is...
I have officially sorted, packed, organized and repacked every single item we own. Isn’t moving great? It at least feels good to purge so much clutter!

I have been waiting all day for my dear hubby to get home so we can try our first ever batch of Kombucha Tea!! I have been slaving over it for a week… well ok, really I did a tiny bit of work one day and it has been fermenting for a week Nevertheless I still feel SUPER excited to taste the fruits of my labor and patience.
What, you wanted to hear how it tastes? Hubby isn’t home yet!! I still have to wait another hour.
You’ll have to come back then to find out! I just wanted you to be in suspense with me
Come back in an hour for the update!!!

The picture may be a little misleading. I neglected to tell him it would be a little fizzy! It’s got a nice, light carbonation to it. Which, after the initial shock, Jake said helped the tea a lot actually. He mentioned that it smelled a little like beer… and when I told him it has a tiny a...
