No prepared foods this year as you all should know by now :) My 20 month old daughter and 1 month old son stopped food production in its tracks for one good year. Our veggie operation will remain full steam and expand but my other baby (food prep) is on hold very temporary. I am typing this entry with one hand as I hold a fussy Nate and Sadie naps. My new job of being the mother is top priority for me and I'm loving every minute. Ben remarked yesterday how he wished Sadie could stay a year and a half old forever. She's so cute and amazing and growing way too fast... Being with her full time, time is still flying. I feel like this is the best time of my life and I am so excited for the future and fun times and adventures with these kids! No room in our lives for crap and drama, full speed a head doing what we love - farming and raising these incredible babes!
We hope to see all you wonderful people at market before the new year! Adios

On October 31st, Halloween, our son was born! Labor and delivery was uncomplicated and pretty quick! Nathan Edward Joseph Sosnicki arrived at 5:24pm weighing 7lbs 13oz. Nathan is a name both Ben and I liked right off the bat. Little Nate. Edward is after my father and Joe is after Ben's father. At 4 days old now he is actually looking a bit more like ME than Ben! But they change so much...so fast...He drinks breastmilk like a horse and is happy and thriving. His big sister likes to 'pat' his head....gentle at first..then not so much. She is good at ignoring him for now.
Ben left 10 minutes after the birth to organize the Saturday market load! This time of year we are scampering to get the crops off and into storage before the help leaves! And since babies come when they are ready - you adapt! No maternity leave around here!! But we have helpful family members and so much support that I get all the rest I need. I feel great though and had Nate in the carrot patch at two days old and in the barn today for a visit.
We'll continue on at market as usual with me staying behind for a bit, but not for long...market baby #2 will be around with his big sister sooner than later ;)
