Mr. Frugalwoods, Babywoods, and I are thrilled to introduce you to the newest member of our family: Littlewoods! Our second daughter was born on February 17th and tipped the scales at 8 pounds, 2 ounces and 20.5 inches long. I always thought it was hilarious that parents shared the weight and length of their children, but, we’re so proud of them and there’s not really anything else to report about them at this stage other than… hey! it’s a baby! I feel like I know many of you personally through the comments and emails you send me and I’m always so grateful to be privy to your financial lives. Hence, I wanted to share this joyful news with you as soon as I could!
I’m sure I’ll regale you with a more detailed rendition of her birth at some point, as I did with our first daughter, but for now, I just wanted you all to know that she has safely arrived. I will tell you that her birth was much less harrowing than her sister’s. It was, all in all, a very straightforward and simple entrance to the world, for which we are tremendously grateful!
Mom, dad, baby, and big sister are all doing great and we’re being well looking after by my wonderful mother-in-law, who is here to help us for the month! Thank you, grandma!
Please have patience with me this month as I will likely be (even slower… ) to respond to messages, emails, and comments, although I will still be around (I can’t stay away!). Frugalwoods posts will continue since I actually got myself organized enough to write them in advance (something I have honestly never done before in my life).
Additionally, as you likely know, my third child–my book–will be born/published on March 6th and you can pre-order a copy now. I will mail you a signed bookplate if you do so (details here)! Thank you!
