The Birth Blog

As many of you know, our baby (#5!) is due on June 18th, Father’s Day. Since he’s dropped and fully engaged, he could come early. However, none of the other children came early so I’m certainly not going to get my hopes up!!

We are having the baby at home (unless something happens, of course), and Ali, our 15-year-old daughter, will be helping Richard blog the event with frequent updates and maybe even some photos (no nudity, not to worry – I’m far too modest for that!) if things are progressing slowly. We were originally going to set up the blog up for family and friends, but so many readers and authors have asked to be notified of the event that Richard set up an email list so we can tell everyone when I go into labor and where to access the blog.

We’ll only send out two emails to the list – one when I go into labor and one when the baby arrives safe and sound. The email will tell you where to go and what to do to get the blog postings. If you want to be on the list, just holler by signing up HERE.

You can read how we’re preparing for the homebirth HERE.

Hugs to everybody!
