Happy 2nd Birthday Brody!

Two years ago today ... Brody was born at home weighing 12 pounds. I'm so grateful that I chose to have a home birth as there most probably would have been medical intervention otherwise. While it was hands down the most intense day of my life I would do it again in a heartbeat for the same results.

This is Brody shortly after birth.

Here's Brody with my wonderful midwives, Jess & Lynne.

Houston's face shows so much concern and wonderment. He is such a good big brother ... I couldn't have asked for any better. They are truly lucky to have each other.

We had a small family birthday party at Papa & Miss Nancy's river place yesterday. It turned out just great. We usually have really big parties at home but we decided to switch it up a little. It was a really fun day.

Today my mom and I took the boys to a u-pick blueberry farm. It was really fun and the boys were really good pickers too. I couldn't believe all the blueberries we took home for only $4. We'll definitely do that again.

After picking blueberries we took Brody for his first professional haircut. He wasn't all that happy about the situation and I ended up having to sit with him so he would let it happen. We both left covered with hair but it looks cute.


  1. Happy Birthday to your little guy! We love blueberry picking too! We went this past weekend. Looks like you all had fun!
