Introducing Arthur Cody

Baby boy is already 3 weeks old...thinking it was time for some photos and an update.

Arthur Cody was born April 17th, 2013 at 10:05 am. He weighed in at 8 lbs 2 oz and was 22 inches long. 
He is the largest baby we have had...could be because he was born 2 weeks after my 'due date'.

About 1/2 hour old...cord hadn't even been cut yet.

About an hour old...snuggled up in the sling and getting ready to get weighed.

Proud big sister, Charlie, just can't get enough of him. 
That big dent in his forehead got much better overnight. He was kind of cock-eyed in the birth canal while I was in labor and he had his head pressed up to one side of my pelvic bone.

5 days old...chilling out on the top of mom's desk as she was working away on paperwork...there is no maternity leave when you run your own business.

He was born at home...quick delivery after a long labor.

Birth story coming soon...

God bless!

  2. So cute! I wasn't able to comment on the newer three posts for some reason but this one came up.

    Love all your posts. Greenhouse looks great! What are you going to do with Spelt? Seems crazy that Arthur is already 6 weeks old & Joseph is 2.5! It seems like just yesterday. I also thought Charlie looked really tall in the greenhouse photo.

    Let's get together soon!

    1. We will grind the spelt like wheat and use the flour for baking, etc. We have been using spelt instead of wheat for a few years now. This is the first time we have grown our own though.

      And it's totally crazy how fast the kids grown..Charlie turned 6 last week too.
