What is my blog about? It's about Torah family living. It's about letting Torah affect our daily lives, from mealtime to bedtime, homeschooling to farm chores.

Noah Ephraim

Noah arrived safely at home at 8:47 this morning, May 12.

It was a beautiful birth that went just as planned, however it was quite painful and a lot of work. He wasn't born in the tub, because I couldn't make it back to the bathroom in time, but I only had to push for 45 min. which is very short for me. Doug arrived home shortly after he was born, and he was still on my belly. His older siblings came in right after breakfast to meet him, and they just adore him.

Oh, and he weighed 7 lb 14 oz, 21 in long. Donna, he does have a touch of red in his hair. More later, perhaps after another nap.

Some comments were lost when blogger was down yesterday. I copied and pasted them here.

How how wonderful! I was thinking and praying for you this morning =)
