I’ve missed you all! After almost three years of posting something a few times a week, it feels so funny to go even 10 days without checking in!!! I’m not one to give excuses, so I’ll blame the youngest member of our family…
Yep. Baby Arthur arrived 3 weeks early in the wee hours of Wednesday morning last week. I’m afraid my ‘birth story’ would be similar to Louisa’s… fast and furious and thankfully in the hospital, so I won’t go into details!
With three weeks left in his residency, Arthur was a hefty 8 lbs, 7 ounces. Phew. He has a full head of dark brown hair just like his sister Martha did. I don’t have a sense of his personality quite yet, but he’s settling right into this big loud family of his.
Unlike Louisa he’s being a little finicky about his meals, but we’re getting there. (Breast feeding’s hard, y’all…)
The big kids are euphoric! We didn’t spend too much time talking about gender what-ifs, but… Oliver is BESIDE himself to have a brother. They’ve all finally remembered his name and hearing them announce to anyone who will listen that Baby Arthur is home warms a mom’s heart.
We are so fortunate to have an amazing babysitter to run around after the little kids, Mark has the flexibility to come home a little early this week, family’s stopping by to help, meals are being delivered… it takes a wonderful puffy heart village to survive the first few weeks with a newborn!
Slowly but surely we’re settling into a rhythm, the big kids are finishing school, and I’m hoping to get back to some projects that were literally left half completed on the back porch! I have some fun posts to pull together for you… we’ve done some work around the yard and I cannot WAIT to share the beauties I received from the rockstars at Southern Living Plants, Eleanor’s room is next in line to pull together (think paint, and some UH-mazing Lacefield fabric), the back porch is coming along and that’s just the half of it! Told ya this new house was FULL of projects and makeovers!!
Thanks for all your amazing good wishes on social media… Arthur and I felt alllll your love!
