Welcome, Baby Money!

I had my baby on January 22, 2012!  She was born at home and weighed 6 pounds even and was 19 inches long.  She came a lot earlier than I ever expected (I thought I would have her today!)  Life has been great lately, but more busy!  I can’t believe how much laundry a little person can help create.  We are so in love and couldn’t be happier.  I’m trying to think of a good nickname for her for the blog and the only thing I’ve come up with so far is Penny!

I can see how our money is going to change as a result of the baby- I think our electric bill will be higher because of us both being home and keeping the house warmer for her and also because of the amount of laundry I’ve been doing.  I also know that my gas usage has gone down since I haven’t really left the house too much yet, and that probably won’t change too much.  I’m sure I’ll start going places, but it won’t be as much as when I was working.

I’ll make sure to keep you all informed, and if you have any good nicknames, let me know!

    Hooray! Love the nickname “Penny.” If you have a boy later, you could call him “Bill” on here. Lol!

    I love the nickname Penny! Congratulations. We homebirth too and wouldn’t do it any other way.

    Mrs Money Reply:

    LivingOurWay- It’s funny because we really didn’t tell anyone before hand because we were afraid of all the negative comments. Now that it’s happened, no one can say anything bad! It was such a great experience. A LOT more painful than I ever imagined, but still perfect. :) I want to do it again.
