The new guy

Wilder Lake Mann Malone (goes by Lake)



Born at home Monday, June 28th at 10:29pm.

Just under 8 hours of labor from water breaking to birth. Only 17 hours shorter than last time, thank you very much!



We're all doing really well. Calder's an amazing, tender, loving brother.



He and Gramma C made a special birth-day cake for Lake: Straw-Raspberry Lemonade Layer Cake. A delicious creation featuring the season's fresh berries, lemon curd, whipped cream, buttercream and a fabulous lemon cake (scroll down to the one that says, "This is THE best.")



Now back to the all-day baby gazing...

Such lovely brothers...& how nice to know that the giving birth learning curve worked in your favor. Seriously, they look wonderful together, you sound great, & the cake don't sound bad, neither. Um-hmmm.
