Such a great Halloween this year! Last year she didn't really understand the concept of Halloween, but this year- oh boy!  Streets of our town were so beautifully decorated, I probably took a zillion pictures. We decorated our front entry together and read book about Halloween every day before bed for a whole month, she was curious about every little detail and symbol- whiches, spiders, pumpkins, owls... and candy. As much as I want to keep her away from mainstream candy packed with corn syrup, it was virtually impossible that day, so I just let it go, since she can only eat so much.  But please read this post about what really is hiding in the most popular Halloween treats- this is really spine- chilling :)

Welcome, Alex !

See what happened the other day- we had a brand new baby boy. I had a beautiful, fast, drug free natural birth, and he was over ten pounds!  I am proud of myself for sticking with my birth plan and my beliefs- the birth can truly be an amazing experience if you prepare ( mentally, emotionally and physically, but really it is all in your head!) and have a supportive team with you.
We are thrilled to have you with us, Alex! Welcome home.
