He's a boy and he's pretty great so far. But, unsurprisingly, he's been using up some of my gardening, chicken keeping, cooking, crafting and blogging time. I did still manage to plant a partial summer garden, which I'll write about soon, along with a chicken and kitchen update. And there are many, many baby-related blog posts in the works.
As you may have guessed, we are trying to be frugal, resource-efficient and sustainable parents. That started before the boy even arrived, with solicitations to friends for their hand-me-downs and purchases of gently-used items off of craigslist. (No one should ever buy a new co-sleeper. There are so many practically new ones for sale online.) And it continues now that he's here, with cloth diapers, handmade toys and green cleaning products.
For now, though, I'll leave you with this photo of his tiny baby toes. Because, let's be honest, all I really want to talk about is how cute he is.
