Tyndale William, welcome.


Tyndale William entered the world this past Saturday.


He is named after the inspiring English Christian protestant reformer & Bible translator, William Tyndale.

7 lbs., 4 oz., blue eyes, light-colored hair (we think he’s going to be a blondie).


The birth experience was amazing–I can’t wait to share it with you!

After our discussion on natural birthing, I’m sure you’re wondering how it all went down. Again, I’m excited to share the details but will save those for the next post.

For the next little while, while Joseph is on paternity leave, we’ll be relishing our babymoon, which means lots of cuddle time with this little man.

So in love.

    Congratulations!!!! I have been checking in to see if you would share the news. I am so happy for you and your family. I hope you get lots of rest and snuggle time. I wish I could smell him. I know that is so weird but I just love how newborns smell. He is beautiful and so lucky to have you for a momma.

    You did it! You should eat pancakes to celebrate! (That’s all I wanted after I had Preston, was pancakes, and french toast…and pinto beans for some reason…I finally had room in my tummy for food, oh boy did I eat!) No more sugar spike worries.

    He is so beautiful, and I am thrilled to hear that the labor experience was awesome. It really is, totally awesome when things go well! You are inspiring me to post pictures of my baby and my story, it is so fun. Congratulations to you and Joseph! I hope your kiddos are adjusting to this new little brother.
