Many of you know we have been awaiting our first baby, who arrive unexpectedly on Thursday, March 10th at 9 p.m. - our intuition told us she would be early and "it" would be a girl, and she is a sweet little girl who came five days early. At birth she was 7# 9 oz and 19" long - a lot smaller than we expected considering I am 6'0" and Chris is 6'5"...but I'm sure she will grow quickly, especially on the wholesome, locally grown breast milk she gets daily!

Unfortunately, labor & delivery was a piece of cake compared to my recovery. Lil' Ms. Claire gave me a fourth degree tear on the way out, and a possible surgery three months from now. So, while I love local food and blogging, you may not hear from me as often while I am healing & figuring out this new life - but I hope to return fully soon! So please, if you pray, pray for me, if you think positive thoughts, send them my way...I'm definitely needing all the help healing I can get right now.
