It sure sounds a lot better than my hospital experiences! Thanks for sharing and congratulations on your new addition. Give my love to everyone.

  8. God is good!!! Love his sweet name! It does suit him! My oldest weighed 10 lb. 9.5 oz. and was 21.5 in. and I thought that was big. Funny thing, by elementary age and high school, he was just average and isn’t even 6 ft. now! Thank you for sharing this intimate story and congratulations!!!

    1. Doreen, yes he is! That is a big baby! So funny how it may not mean anything for the long term, we have joked about that! Our oldest boys are big and tall, but Ezekiel may turn out to be our smallest as a grown up!

  9. Oh my goodness! Twelve pounds! That is incredible. The biggest baby of mine was 6 pounds 15 oz. He is just gorgeous and I love the name Ezekiel James.

    1. I know, I still can’t believe how big he is! He is so completely content and sweet though, it’s like we skipped those first hard weeks! Thank you I’m glad you like his name!

  10. Congratulations! I had a home birth with my first baby and midwife deliveries with the next four at a “Birth Cottage” which we are fortunate to have where I live. Only one girl in my bunch though!
    I wish you much joy with Ezekiel!

    1. Thanks so much! Sounds like you had great experiences. My first was in a birthing center when we lived in PA. It was an old house that was converted, it was such a sweet place!

  11. Congratulations, Ezekiel James is adorable! Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful story; this 64 year old memaw loved it.

  12. Hi Jenn,

    A big super CONGRATS on your new baby boy!! He is so cute!

    I love your home birth story and think it’s amazing how you have your children at home. I often wonder if I were to redo my first birth, if I would have home births, because they really intrigue me. However, I have had all c-sections, so I can’t. And I’m pretty sure I’m done having children now…

    Again, congratulations, get some rest (ha ha ha), and enjoy some sweet cuddle and snuggle time with Ezekiel. I love that name btw :).

Also just read your laundry room transformation story which is amazing..thanks for all the tips and ideas! I also have a wooden shelf resting on my appliances but we extended it all the way to the side walls making it quite long. Maybe an idea for you in the future.
