New Super Model

PostBy: NoSmoke On: Tue May 21, 2013 5:14 pm

Okay, so I may be biased, but my wife and I are pleased to say we were blessed with a baby girl on Monday morning, at 03:25 AM weighing in at 7.1 pounds and 19-3/4 inches long for those that are concerned about such things. Katie was in labor for 27 hours but produced a healthy girl despite her being a premature by two weeks due to her issues with Kidney Stones.

This is our 4th daughter, Kaelyn Ann, and we have been truly blessed to have her in our lives. (This is a photo of her at 36 hours old.)

Congrats NS, by the way just how many bathrooms does your house have? I have a cousin that had 5 girls & 3 full baths, he had a bath & shower put in the basement for himself & hardly got to use it. Best regards to the wife, after all she did all the work.

Great news, however that is another 'hot water demand' for the heating system....120 gallon Super-Stor.......1000 gallon buffer tank..... I may have to bring you an AA260 to tide you over for a few years!

Glad mom is well and the 'precious cargo', too. How about the rest of the kids? Pets? Animals? Big doin's on the farm.....

PS: Not a good time to be talking about #5 unless you have heat in the barn, shed, or wherever you will be assigned to live!!!! :idea: :!:

Well you know this family...we run at 100 miles per hour so yes a new baby is just part of what we have going on.

We try and do one big thing for the farm every year so that we are always improving upon it, for example, last year we cleared 10 acres of forest and made it into a field. This year we are in the midst of buying the remainder of the farm from my father. It's 156 acres so while its not a lot of land, it still will make an impact on the farming operations here since about 60 acres of it is tillable land and can be used for the sheep/dairy cows.

We also got a grant from the USDA to do a Forestry Plan for our woodlot. One thing I have been really good about is having a great conservation plan for the farming side of things, but our forest lacked a comprehensive plan. With this grant we can right that wrong, so I have just started communication with a great forester here that is going to help us plan out our forest a little better.

Then of course there is our home; we just sawed the white pine into boards a few weeks ago, so soon we will start laying the radiant floor hydronic tubing and start installing our flooring over that. That will be a good project done before we tackle our new kitchen cabinets.

So having a baby; while the high point of our lives right now, does not mean it is the only thing going on. We pack as much life into our lives as we can, because remember I still work full time as a shipbuilder welding US Navy Destroyers together when I am not home/on the farm.
