It’s been a long time since I’ve been on the blog. It has felt amazing to have some much needed time off after the birth of our most recent sweet baby, Grace Vivian Vanderveen. I have never had a maternity leave for the births of any of my children. That’s the nature of self employment. I prepare for it every time. I know it’s coming, and it’s OK. This time we did manage to clear the lion’s share of our clients just before Gracie was born, and I had the supreme luxury of having my phone on silent for the delivery and for two weeks after she was born. It was wonderful.
It was the best delivery and the best recovery I have ever had, ever. So good, in fact, that 10 days after she was born, I really felt mostly back to normal. Today I love stretching my toes to the end of the bed and sleeping on my tummy and just generally feeling like I have my body back.
For each of our children we make a video to celebrate their birth so we can remember it. We also give them a verse from the Bible, that goes with their name, which we feel will impart destiny and meaning to their life as they grow older. Here below is the video for our sweet Grace. I hope you enjoy it!
