R.I.P. Whitey...and thanks for dinner!

Tough in both spirit and texture (have you eaten rooster?) Whitey met his inevitable fate back in September. It didn't go as smoothly as planned, but he cooked up real nice in a Posole soup and the neighborhood has been sleeping soundly at 4:30am again. Sorry to see you go...

The Schlich Family Five?!

It's about time to share the news, if you haven't already heard...We are expecting a new addition to the family around May 14th. I'm 16 weeks pregnant now, we have our first ultrasound in a few weeks and will find out the sex. Although we're open to whatever mother nature provides us, Gig is definitely hoping for a boy. He's surrounded by Luna, Tinker and I, as well as 5 hens. He's feeling the need for more testosterone in the family. It's amazing how much sooner I've started to show this time around than with Luna. We have a midwife, unfortunately my insurance will only cover a hospital birth, but the midwife has hospital privileges. We started out with one midwife who I didn't feel great about, but last week we met her partner and really liked her, so we switched. Luna likes to point to my belly and say "baby". It'll be fun to see how she reacts as my belly grows larger. We'll keep you updated!
