Meet the newest great grand child.
« on: September 22, 2022, 10:58:39 PM »
 On the 18'th our newest great grandson was born there at the house. They planned a home birth and my oldest daughter (mother of 7) was the midwife. All's well. Here is a pic of James at 3 hours old.

P.S.  I miss my wife, she has been staying in town at our place there with our out of state visitors since the 10'th. It is a 55 and older community and she is there so our guests can stay there. I have been seeing my wife regularly but we both want her to come home now. Our family guests will be leaving Sunday morning so then my wife and I will be reunited.  8) Just a few more days...

Handsome little fellow. It looks like he's mastered the "nap" already.

Congrats on the newest edition to the clan, Dan!

It's getting Huge! I have 14 grandkids and 13 great grandkids. Two of the greats are adopted but count in every way.  8)  It makes me wonder how big it will be when I am really old, I am just 66 years old.

All of the greats born so far are from my oldest daughter. My son's kids and my youngest daughter's kids are not  married or having kids yet.

My clan is spread out to 4 states so far.

Thank you all!

Of the great grandkids he is the 6th? that was home birthed I think. I know not that long in our past all/most were home births, personally I think it is taking an unnecessary risk to home birth. Yes it is great when all is well but??? I was in the room for all 3 of mine, but I didn't even imagine just having them at home.

I was thinking the same thing Dan but didn't want to say it.
I am almost 60 and was born in a hospital... (Mom was in the Navy and I shared the same building with IKE at the time).
Dad was born in 1930 at home and I remember thing "wow" that was olden days.
Didn't know it was making a come back.

I don't know how big the movement is but these grandkids found it with their homestead attitudes online, They make their own way for about everything. There are at least five that have varying degrees of desire to live more of the "simple life" of their ancestor's. They have determination that exceeds all else. My oldest daughter that was a straight A student grade school through college has home schooled them all and they have lived in 6 different states. Her husband operates heavy equipment.

 The dad of this great grandkid has been on his own since he was 15 when he decided he was a grown up. He is 21 now and this is his 2nd child, his wife has that attitude too. 

My mom and her 12 siblings were all born on a farm with no close by doctor, there was no options.
