The Newest Green Baby Has Arrived!

Last Wednesday, November 12th, the newest member of the Green Baby Guide was welcomed into the world.  Allison was born at home just before noon with the help of a midwife, assistant midwife and doula (and, of course, my husband and mom).  We are happy to say that this was our second home birth and our first water birth!

Mom and baby are recovering nicely with the support of friends and family. Big sister Franci is still adjusting to her new role and insists on touching her sister’s downy head as often as possible.

We are excited to meet all the challenges that come with a growing family, and I’m sure that Alli will provide plenty of inspiration for blogging!

It’s a Girl!

We’re happy to announce that there is a new Green Baby on the way! We’ll be welcoming a little girl into our lives in the beginning of November. We’re very excited that our family is growing and that Franci is going to be a big sister!

Since my belly is growing by the day, I’ll be posting about pregnancy more often. Write what you know, as they say. They also say that each pregnancy is different, and that certainly is the case. As anyone with more than one kid knows, there’s little time to rest and relax your swollen feet when you’re chasing after a toddler! It’s going to take a lot of organization to be even half as prepared as the first time around.
