We’re so pleased to announce that our fourth family member has arrived. Baby T was born last week, and… he’s a boy!
Once we learned we were pregnant, we decided not to find out our baby’s gender ahead of time (we did the same thing with our toddler), so it was a nice surprise to learn in the delivery room that we had a new son! Baby T is (so far) a very peaceful and happy infant. He’s already sleeping in his new room, and even though our house looks like it’s been hit by a tornado of baby clothes, bottles, and other assorted gear, we’re so happy to have him here.
Toddler E is excited to be a big sister and loves to “help” us take care of him. And she’s amazed at how small he is compared to her almost-3-years-old self.
Now that we’ve got two kids in the Rather Square house, we’re going to start referring to them here on the blog by their first initials. But we’re going to continue our current policy to not share their photos or full names, to protect their privacy. Plus, since Rather Square is primarily a home design and improvement blog, we like to stick to exploring those types of projects rather than writing about parenting or kid-specific topics. So, like before, our kids will only make an occasional appearance when we’re working on house projects that involve them directly (like their bedrooms or E’s playroom, or when they are helping us with yardwork).
As we mentioned last time, we’ll be posting a little less frequently in the next few months as we balance blog and family time. But we’ve got a lot of new projects to share and we’re already working on writing up those posts, so look for something in the next week or so.
Thanks to you all for reading along as we go on this journey, and for your kind words and support!
