Dryer upgrade

April 22, 2014 Leave a comment

Our handy-dandy outside clothes dryer was at maximum capacity – what with a 1-year-old and a newborn both making a huge pile of diapers each day.  So I grabbed a couple of landscape timbers, a 2×4, and used some scrap pieces of wood to put up more drying space.  It’s like a memory upgrade for the clothes dryer… or something.

Bet you can’t do that with an electric clothes-dryer.

Freeze warning

The weather folks say we’re supposed to have a freeze tonite – 29 degrees (it was 80 yesterday????)  All of our fruit trees, blueberry bushes, strawberry plants, etc.  have budded out, so we have to cover them up to protect them.  All of our sheets, blankets, pillowcases and whatnot are spread all over the yards.  Hope it doesn’t get too windy!

Until next time…..

First Bath!

First Bath

Cord has finally fallen off, so it was time for the first bath….

Kicking back in the baby bath.  Elijah took it very well, much better than his 2 next oldest sisters did the first time around.  Liberty had a blast “helping” hand soap and towel and washcloth, and even splashing a little warm water on his back.  Even Ruth was excited about “good baby” getting his first bath.

Everyone doing great, Taya feeling much better.  Walked around Old Salem a bit today, even though it was raining.  Found a new garden hoe – a nice heavy one.  Bet Taya can’t break this one  🙂

 

 

Until next time…..

Hello Elijah!

Elijah and Taya

We welcome Elijah James Baldwin into the world!  He was born April 3rd 2014 at 7.59 in the morning.  He weighed 7 pounds, 13 ounces, was 20 inches long, and has plenty of hair.

Taya and Elijah are both doing great, came home from the hospital today.

We are all very grateful for God’s latest addition to our family, and want to thank everyone for their prayers for good health.

I’ve created a new set of photos for him, will add them to the collection as we upload them – find them at https://www.flickr.com/photos/thebaldwingang/sets/72157643489079905/

 

Until next time…..
